I have installed vsftpd on Ubuntu server 16.04 and I'm able to connect without issue. I am able to navigate the directory and so on.

I tried to connect a while later and the FTP client is getting stuck on 'Connection established, waiting for welcome message...'. I've checked the logs in /var/log/vsftpd.log and all I see is 'CONNECT: Client'. When I restart the service I get 'OK LOGIN' after 'CONNECT: Client'.

I've also made sure that the service is active and running and I don't see any errors

Does anyone know why I am not being able to connect?
