Title: ABOR command is timing out when data transfer is happening.
Post by: sumantg on April 29, 2013, 10:16:21 AM
Hi All,

We have our own FTP client code which transfers files to FTP server (vsftpd) on RHEL platform. Everything is working fine except that ABOR command. Why the FTP server was timing out when FTP client issue “ABOR” command during data transfer?

I have tried to change the following parameter in /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf file to support ABOR command and restarted vsftd service on server side, but no luck.

# Enable this and the server will recognise asynchronous ABOR requests. Not
# recommended for security (the code is non-trivial). Not enabling it,
# however, may confuse older FTP clients.

My requirement is to stop the data transfer by issuing “ABOR” command from FTP client to FTP server during file transfer.

Could anyone of you help me in this regard? Let me know if you need any other information.
