Determining the number of connection from a single ip in ftp from WHM

Determining the number of connection from a single ip in ftp from WHM

There are two types of FTP servers provided by cPanel, namely Pure-FTPD and ProFTPD.

By default, Pure FTPD is the default FTP server.

If your FTP client is using more than 8 connections simultaneously from a single IP address, you will see an error message similar to this: “421 Too many connections”.

In this tutorial, we will discuss how to overcome this error in two ways.

First method: #

In the first method, we will get around the above mentioned error by Tweaking WHM Simultaneous max settings.

Please follow the steps mentioned as below.

1- Log in to the WHM control panel #

As we explained in the previous lessons, the login is as follows:

https://yourIPaddress:2087

Change your IPaddress to the IP of your server

Or login using the server name.

https://yourserverhostname:2087

yourserverhostname

 

Note: The best way to log in to the server is to log in using the server name

The explanation of the first method of determining the number of connections from one ip in ftp from WHM has been completed
