Description Nick Urbanik 1999-10-27 02:23:00 UTC
Our RH 6.0 server runs on a Cyrix P166+ CPU, and had all updates installed. When I tried installing RH 6.1 by ftp, the process was extaordiarily slow (was successful previously). The log contained many messages like this: Oct 27 01:01:31 www ftpd: ANONYMOUS FTP LOGIN FROM daniel.tyee.vtc.edu.hk [192.168.129.222], firstname.lastname@example.org Oct 27 01:03:48 www ftpd: exiting on signal 11 Oct 27 01:15:34 www ftpd: exiting on signal 11 The results were installation processes that were due to finish in 250 hours after 14 hours had already elapsed! When I downgraded back to wu-ftpd-2.5.0-5.6.0.i386.rpm, the problem disappeared, and the upgrade process sped up immensely. I restarted the other installation and that is now going smoothly as before. So what is wrong? Perhaps a rpm --rebuild wu-ftpd-2.6.0-1.src.rpm might do the trick.

This is related to the bug 6385. We are experiencing exactly the same symptoms. FTP Installs fail with 'Error setting remote server to passive mode', and downgrading the ftp server removes the problem immediately. Recompiling from .srpm didn't work (as bug report 6385 points out). I'd recommend you release updated wu-ftpd packages ASAP and fix the broken clients. Working FTP installs are pretty vital :)

Same problem here installing from a local mirror. At the time of error there were no other ftp connections and system load as under .05. A sniff trace revealed a second PASV call after hdlist retrieval. Here are the first two file retrievals (that were successful): USER anonymous PASS root@ TYPE I PASV RETR /pub/kickstart/redhat-6.0/i386/RedHat/base/hdlist PASV USER anonymous PASS root@ TYPE I PASV RETR /pub/kickstart/redhat-6.0/i386/RedHat/base/stage2.img PASV As you can see, there is a second PASV call. I don't know why that should make any sort of difference, but it's the only thing I see between the two that is different at all. As others have stated, downgrading to wu-ftpd 2.5.0 using the same configuration immediately fixes the problem.

Comment 4 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-01-18 15:24:59 UTC
wu-ftpd 2.6.0 no longer supports broken clients (and compiling it with support for broken clients would be a bad idea because it would break the ftp protocol, see http://www.wu-ftpd.org/broken-clients.html for details). This is actually a bug in the installer for not speaking the correct ftp protocol; reassigning the bug.

Dr. Mike, this is definitely something that we will want to play with in the lab and let everyone know what version of wu-ftp is working with the installer.

Issue is resolved in the next RawHide.
