I send the logs to you in the privat mail.

Possibly you're using an FTP client (seems unlikely in Red Hat 6.2,
but you could check) that EFS doesn't know about or an ancient EFS.
If you're behind a firewall, configuring EFS to tell FTP to use
passive mode might help.
Ok, that helps but not without glue.
I can't customise efs (The info tells that there is customise group for
efs, but there isn't) or I can't find from help how to change efs to use
ftp-client in the passive mode. So I changed system's ftp binary to
shell-script which calls ftp with -p. That's help, and everything works
after that like charm.
But obviously that won't work if you haven't root account at hand.
But anyway, thanks very much for help!
