So inserting a high value into PasvPortRange may be a solution(start 16384 and PasvPortRange= 40000), but if other applications randomly uses ports in this range, what will be the behaviour of the ftpserver I mean, if x application uses port 16666 and when ftpserver also wants to open 16666, it gets an error, in this error case does it simply increases port number to 16667 or simply fails.
Another question is there a simple way under windows to reserve some ports to the use of an application, Could I say to windows that ports 16300-16400 are reserved for ftpserver and do not allow other applications open any port in this range even if ftpserver is not using that port yet?. --- Arno Garrels <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > Marc wrote: > > With what I have see with the time, one port is > skip for each transaction. > > so with the range you have, only 2 transactions > can be done. > > Windows keep the port open for some time, so you > come at the end with no > > more port to do transaction. > > Well, a closed socket remains in TIME_WAIT state for > a while until it is > destroyed by Windows, this discussion is not new. > But I don't think > that those sockets use/block a port while in that > state.
