vsftpd-2.2.2 released

Just a quick note that I released vsftpd-2.2.2.
Most significantly, a regression was fixed in the inbuilt listener. Heavily loaded sites could see a session get booted out just after the initial connect. If you saw "500 OOPS: child died", that was probably this.



  1. Hi, Chris
    Is it possible to set a max_client number for each user? Or is there any way walkaround to limit the number of max clients per user? I've read the conf document which says max_client has no effect in a per user configuration file.
    I would like to deny logins of a username(eg. ftp) when there are too many (e.g. 5) active clients of that username, while visitors can login with other username / password if those users have not exceeded their login limits.

  2. It's one of the best feature i want in Vsftpd.
    I hope it will be implement soon... for vsftpd to be perfect :)

  3. Hi from Russia)))
    Chris, I used "proftpd", and it has a useful function - "ifgroup". You can use it for different groups of users to define different settings - download speeds, timeouts, etc. In vsftpd, I have not found anything like. Tell me, is there a similar mechanism or whether he plans to vsftpd. Thank you very much!
