IMHO vsftpd works more smoothly with more clients, I have had troubles
with proftpd especially uploads where the client would do a directory
list and after the connection times out, the listing would show up in
the client. Made directory traversal very slow! Never was able to find
a reason for it, no amount of conf tuning was able to rectify it.
installed vsftpd and the problem went away. I have never looked back.
