    Hi all,
    I'm new to ISPConfig and it has been great so far. But one thing. I have verry slow FTP logins, and I figured out how to speed it up, by commenting out or changing the line in "vi /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf" from "Default Address" to the network IP of that machine or commenting it out. But, ISPConfig will change it back to Is there a way to stop that? Or tell it to put in there? Could it be beause when I put it there then restart proftpd it says port 21 allready in use on by proftd server?

    Thanks :)

    Please do not use your FTP-client in "Passive mode".
    When your FTP-connection is rather slow, you can considder to add:

    UseReverseDNS off
    IdentLookups off

    to your /etc/proftpd.conf file.

    You can modify that line in the template file in the /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/ directory. ISPConfig won't overwrite that.
