    For some reason Pure FTPd isn't working. It just says
    Code:
    Status:    Resolving address of utahfishkeepers.us
    Status:    Connecting to [2600:3c01::f03c:91ff:fe2c:f69e]:21...
    Error:    Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
    Error:    Could not connect to server
    Status:    Waiting to retry...
    
    and it just does that over and over.

    has it ever worked before ?

    double check that your csf firewall's TCP_IN and TCP6_IN whitelist ports have passive ports 30001 to 5011 set as 30001:50011 in comma separated list in /etc/csf/csf.conf

    you can use grep/egrep to search your /etc/csf/csf.conf
    Code (Text):
    egrep '^TCP_|^TCP6_' /etc/csf/csf.conf | grep 30001
    


    Or in your ftp client specify your server's IPv4 address as host instead of domain name to connect to.

    It was working just fine not too long ago. The ports are listed there.

    See FAQ items 40 & 41 for details and clues could be your ISP ip got blocked by CSF Firewall.

    add above existing nameserver this
    Code (Text):
    nameserver 8.8.8.8
    

    so it becomes
    Code (Text):
    domain members.linode.com
    search members.linode.com
    nameserver 8.8.8.8
    nameserver 173.230.155.5
    nameserver 173.255.212.5

    I am trying to upgrade XenForo and I connected using the IPv4 address, but it stopped and now I can't upload files. If I wait a little while, it seems to go away but it comes back after a few hundred files are uploaded.

    now my SSH password isn't working either. I changed the root password to try to use SFTP, but that didn't work and now my main non root SSH password isn't working.

    I tried connecting with WinSCP instead of filezilla and it wouldn't connect. It just said it times out. I tried connecting with SSH under a different IP and the password didn't work either. I have to get the files uploaded to finish the XenForo upgrade.

    I added root to AllowUsers to try to get SFTP to work and when it didn't, I removed it and now my main account isn't working. And I think it blocked my IP too.

    Ok I got back SSH access and I was able to SSH in from my IP after I got back access, so it isn't blocked by CSF.
