Directory listing in FTP gives timeout

by IT researcher   Last Updated June 26, 2018 16:04 PM

I am host a website in the server with Cent OS and used CWP as the web hosting software. The website is working fine. I noticed that when listing the files in server through FTP i get the timeout most of the time. The error received in Filezilla is

Error:  Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
Error:  Failed to retrieve directory listing

Apart from ftp all looks fine at the time of error. Checked my and server's internet connection and it was good. I don't have any private IP configured in the server, server is directly connected to public IP.

Steps followed:

  • Restarted FTP server
  • Checked by connecting in passive as well as active FTP connections
  • Checked the server firewall by disabling it
  • Restarted server
  • Enabled all ports in the server

How can i check the cause of the problem and solve?
