Re: [linux-392] Kill FIN_WAIT1 Connections

Hey Jay,

Thanks for the info.  I found that information while searching as well.  The real problem I'm having is that when I log into the ftp server with the client I'm not allowed to execute any common ftp commands like put, get, etc...  This worked up until I started having the issue with FIN_WAIT1.  So I'm not sure if its because the system thinks there are too many connections still open although the socket is closed.  It works fine if I log in from another machine.

Hi, Clyde,
I'm not a sys admin, so my advice is not a direct one. According to my search engine -
" STATE:    FIN_WAIT1  - The socket is closed, and the connection is shutting down"
so I wouldn't freak out upon seeing those messages on my screen.
If You'd like to hear what can be done in your case  please post a shout with some of the pertinent specs on our message board and those who are able to answer will gladly share  their knowledge with us so we all would  learn from the experience.
I'm sure we will  find an answer.
Happy New Year!
Jay
 
 

State

The state of the socket. Since there are no states in RAW and usually no states used in UDP, this row may be left blank. Normally this can be one of several values:
ESTABLISHED
The socket has an established connection.
SYN_SENT
The socket is actively attempting to establish a connection.
SYN_RECV
The connection is being initialized.
FIN_WAIT1
The socket is closed, and the connection is shutting down.
FIN_WAIT2
Connection is closed, and the socket is waiting for a shutdown from the remote end.
TIME_WAIT
The socket is waiting after close for remote shutdown retransmission.
CLOSED
The socket is not being used.
CLOSE_WAIT
The remote end has shut down, waiting for the socket to close.

Hey All,

Happy New Year!  I hope the holidays treated everyone well!  Well I'm hoping someone could point me in the right direction with an issue I've been having.  I have a bunch of ftp connections in a FIN_WAIT1 status that just won't go away.  The ftp client(lftp) isn't running anymore and I can't figure out how to get rid of those connections without doing the obvious of rebooting the machine.  Has anyone dealt with this before and/or have any suggestions? 

Thanks,

Clyde
