    VSFTPD - cannot transfer open files?


    If a file is open on the server (e.g. an openoffice document), I am unable to transfer it to the remote computer. The file transfer just hangs. Is this configurable? I didn't see anything in vsftpd.conf.

    I am using VFTPD 2.0.6 on SuSE 11.0. My vftpd.conf file is attached.

    Cheers,
    Chad

    This isn't a VSFTPd issue. It depends on what program has the file open and HOW it's opened. Depending on the lock used by the opening program, you may/may not be able to get read access to the file.
