Hi Keld,

Looking more deeply at the scanner logs, I noticed more such error

Indeed, the 550 is an artifact.

I no know that two things happen:

1) the used Perl module reports an error wrongly - what happens is a
timeout (421), but Perl claims that a 550 happened, which is bollocks.
Here's an example: ftp dir:
Net::FTP=GLOB(0x112a290)>>> CWD
Net::FTP=GLOB(0x112a290)<<< 421 Timeout. ftp status code 550, closing.
Net::FTP=GLOB(0x112a290)>>> QUIT

2) the timeout happens simply because the server closes the connection
after a minute or two (which is a completely normal and valid
configuration), because our local scanning process takes too long
dealing with the file list.

So I'll have to fix this with a reconnect, and make the scan work
faster to prevent the timeouts in the first place.

I am working around with a reconnect in the scanner now.
So the scanning should catch up with all files again, where it is done
via FTP.

Thanks again for your help,

Good to know that the problem was solved.
