You can configure different timeouts in the main ProFTPd configuration file. When logged in to the shell as a root, open the $FTPD_CONF/proftpd.conf file and sets the times you need in the server config or <Global> area, for example:

        TimeoutNoTransfer             900
        TimeoutStalled                     600
        TimeoutIdle                         1200

A detailed description of these directives and many others can be found at
