421 Too many connections
Posted 09 July 2008 - 09:13 AM
I host several domains on our server and have to do server to (same) server transfer. Furthermore, I have a connection with the same server through dreamweaver. Everything worked perfectly in SmartFTP 2, but now after a couple of transfer I get this error:
421 Too many connections (5) from this IP
So you can see I have 5 connections. My number of workers is set to 1, so as far as I can see I only use 3 connections. In the previous version of SmartFTP I could even have 4 connections to the same domain before getting this error. But apparently SmartFTP v3 uses more than 4 for 2 connections?
Anyone knows how to solve this?

Disable the background connection in the Transfer dialog of your favorite properties.
Menu: Favorites->Edit Favorites
Locate your favorite. Right-click on it. Select Properties from the context menu.
Go to the Transfer dialog.
Disable Background connection/transfer

However, the transfer ended up in the transfer queue waiting to retry. It looks like the transfer needs a third connection.
I decided to log off to server 2, copied the file I want to copy to a local drive, that worked and then I tried to connect to server 2 again, but that gave the 421 message again. Apparently the transfer 'kept' the connection, while the transfer queue is empty.
Is there a way to let the transfer queue give back the connection immediately?
