The above message occurs when proftpd times out waiting for a data
transfer; the most usual culprits are firewall/NAT/router issues. If you
see this message only sometimes, my guess is that it's a transient network
condition in your system.

Well, the above message from the client indicates that it uses OpenSSL,
but that it hasn't loaded the OpenSSL error strings, so that it cannot
provide any more useful information than "00000000".

This doesn't look like a server issue to me; perhaps a problem with the
clients used, or a transient network issue.
