I keep getting locked out by my web-host when I’m uploading files with Sparkle. The host explained it’s because of “port-scanning” activity, then they said it was or a wrong FTP password. (It’s definitely not the latter, because I’m already logged in.)
Here’s what the host sent me (with the IP addresses taken out):
According to server's logs your IP [redacted] was blocked by firewall due to detected Port Scan. ### Nov 28 05:44:32 mtl-node11 kernel: Firewall: *Port Flood* IN=vlan3009 OUT= MAC=[redacted] SRC=[redacted] DST=[redacted]LEN=48 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=51 ID=0 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=51315 DPT=22 WINDOW=65535 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0 ###
I had this same issue with my previous host, and it’s the main reason I just switched.
