An error arose on ssh port 22 (error code:121)

Postby danesp » Thu Nov 10, 2011 5:16 pm

My ftp server (v 3.3.5) runs on average for about a week without issues. I would say I get around 30 logins per week.
Then from out of nowhere, I get this error message in red letters, "An error arose on ssh port 22 (error code:121)".
When this error occurs, no one can log in and access there files. Any login attempts just timeout.
In order to restore the server to working mode, I have to restart the PC.

Before this error, I get a few people trying to "hack" there way onto the server through port 22. They always fail and end up getting automatically banned after 7 attempts.

I'm not quite sure whats causing this...

Any help would be much appreciated !

thx

Yes, I figured that my version would be a little outdated.
I've been instructed not to upgrade unless I absolutely have to.
Has issues like this one been addressed in later versions?

What exactly is error code 121?
Why would I be getting this error?

thx

Thanks for the link.
I guess the error 121 (The semaphore timeout period has expired) is a system error and that the ftp is just reporting it.
After researching the error; it can be 1 of many causes that this happens.
I will troubleshoot my system rather than the ftp server.
