FTP Socket errors

Post by Todd »

This error messages sometimes comes back from one of my customers backing up to an internal vsFTP server:

Reflector 2.5.10

ERR 2024-05-12 21:38:58 An error occurred while uploading the file "C:\Users\accounting\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\boteqaxu.default-1441211636453\storage\default\https+++shop.nordstrom.com\cache\morgue\44\{a7c30849-26e1-400f-9127-3cc779dc912c}.final" to "/MyDocsBackup/backup1/Mozilla 2024-05-12 21;31;27 (Full)/Firefox/Profiles/boteqaxu.default-1441211636453/storage/default/https+++shop.nordstrom.com/cache/morgue/44": Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted 192.168.202.10:10098

And it repeat about ten time with other file names. The file name exceeds 260 characters. Does that have anything to do with it?

Shouldn't but it depends on the file system used at server side:

The file system on the ftp server is ext4 (max filename length 255 bytes, max path 4096 bytes).

Here is the rub. I can repeat the same task as soon as this one end with all the ftp error and there will be no problem.

Now I am wondering is all the other computers on the network which also backup to the fto server are going off at the same time and swamping the ftp server?

I increased the number of sockets from 10 to 210:

Code: Select all

vi /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
# Passive mode
pasv_enable=Yes
# pasv_max_port=10100
pasv_max_port=10300
pasv_min_port=10090
Now we wait and see
