Pfsense Virgin - Ftp Port Forwarding Issues
Data_Pimp last edited by
Pfsense Virgin, I am switching from my personal Netgear Pro-Secure UTM 150 firewall – EOL.
Installed pfsense v 2.4.2 latest release (amd64) on the current hardware: (spare hardware)
HP ProLiant DL320e Gen8 v2
• Intel Xeon CPU E3-1220 v3 @ 3.10Ghz
• 16GB of ECC RAM
• Dual Pro Samsung SSD’s (None RAID)
• (2) 1 Gbps on board NICs (Using for WAN1 / WAN2)
• (4) 1 Gbps Intel NIC card install (Using for LAN1-LAN4)
I KNOW OVER KILL!!! – Great Deal for some freelance work
First, installation and learning curve went very well without any issues setting up WAN1 ISP gateway with a block of 5 static IPs using Virtual IPs. (Few Hours…)
Second, setup remote gateways for remote login for (VNC) outside my network to Static IP computers (Port Forwarding)
Third, I setup a DMZ on LAN4 for wireless APs and (2) WIFI Webcams with static IPs (Port Forwarding) – few hours learning curve.
Nonetheless, I must have been lucky as a one handed and one-eyed man in a hacking contest up to this point trying to setup my simple FTP port forwarding… I been working on this for days. The learning curve from all the above on port forwarding is not shining a light… Note: I am trying to mirror my working Netgear setup without any changes until I can learn more advance pfsense skills.
Currently, I have port forwarding FTP port 21 setup for two different FTP servers which neither one is working…
• Destination Public Port (Static WAN IP)
• Destination port range (FTP – FTP)
• Redirect target IP (LAN Static Server Port)
• Redirect Target Port (FTP)
PfSense is running circles around all of the routers I have use in the last 15 years – this software is Astonishing in Speed and Capabilities! – Put New Life into an Old Network!
Can some pfsense expert assist me with some insight on how to setup my ftp services?
Try SFTP rather than FTP.
