For some reasons I cant access any of my accounts on my dedicated server via FTP. It simply times out when it tried to display the directories.

Heres a log from FileZila...

I have restarted the FTP service serveral times but still It doesnt loads. I only have this problem when my server is reaching it peak usage which is still only 1.0 (4 cores), 40% of 4GB ram.

The ftp connections isnt maxed out because only me and my colleague have access to FTP on the server.
