VSFTPD problems showing folder/files

Posted on 2013-10-23
Last Modified: 2014-01-09

I have VSFTPD on CentOS.
I have setup it to work over SSL and with htpasswd.
The login is OK, but when the LIST command is initiated I get timedout and no files/folders are shown. I have permisions of user used to login on the folder I connect to. I also have write command on YES in VSFTPD conf file.

Suggestions? Thanks!
