Hi Catalin... I installed pure--ftpd with TLS/SSL support and am  
having some problems with it...

1. VERY slow to list files the first time. I thought this was a DNS  
problem, so tried the -H flag, but no joy. Still slow.

2. When I try to connect with TLS/SSL, I get a connection, but the  
file list takes so long that the connection times out.

Any ideas? I Googled for this problem, but the only hint I came up  
with was the -H flag...

Thanks: John

Try to disable TLS/SSL and see if this improve performance.
Increase debug level and check the log for any errors.
