How to speed up logins in pure-ftpd on Debian or Ubuntu Linux by disable name resolving

If you experience problems with slow logins in pure-ftpd, this is often caused by a problem with the resolving of the clients hsotname. This happens e.g. when you run a FTP server in your intranet and the hostname of the client computer does not exist in DNS. To disable name resolving in pureftpd, run the command:

echo 'yes' > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/DontResolve

and then restart pure-ftpd

/etc/init.d/pure-ftpd-mysql restart

Disabling name resolving also fixes the following error message:
