Taking a long time for ftp message.

Why is the ftp welcome message taking so long to appear on the default install? And why are users not chrooted to their home directory by default? Should I go in and change this config manually or is there a way to do it from virtualmin.

I’m not sure why the welcome message is taking so long to display, it usually only takes a few moments. Are you sure your DNS is working correctly?

As for chrooting – it’s tough to pick a default that pleases everyone :slight_smile:

However, that’s easy to tweak in Virtualmin – just go into Limits and Validation -> FTP Directory Restrictions, and you can activate a Directory Restriction for User Home Directories.
