 General vsftpd Configuration

If you are using xinetd to start vsftpd you may experience a long delay on before the 220 hello message. This is particulary true with the default Gentoo xinetd configuration for vsftpd. The /etc/xinetd.d/vsftp file contains the following two lines :

log_on_success += DURATION USERID
log_on_failure += USERID

With those lines, you will have to wait for an identd answer and this will take approximately 30 seconds if there is none. You can comment the two lines by prefixing them with # to disable this feature.
