FTP issues??



  • Maybe someone could shed some light on this….

    I'm using version 93.2, if I leave the ftp proxy helper on, I can't get online, so I disabled it on every interface.  I also disabled the bouncing feature so I can get online. I can get to my internal server from the outside now with this setup.  If I try to ftp to my server from the outside I can't connect.

    I tried enabling ftp helper on the WAN or LAN interface and I can't get online from my internal networks.  If I disable them I still can't get online until I do a cold reboot.

    Makes no sense.  All the FTP helpers do is redirect port 21.



  • Exactly what I thought, but as soon as I enable it, my msn drops, whatever mp3 stream I'm listening to drops, and I can't get anywhere aside from on my internal network.

    So if I have them all disabled, on which interface should I enable ftp helper on only?  WAN, LAN, or both?

    Well that REALLY makes no sense because even if the filter policy was borked, it doesn't disconnect already connected states.



  • any suggestions for me to do/try on my end???

    Start from scratch on 0.94 and upgrade to 0.94.2.  Do not import any prior configurations.



  • Not a bad idea…..ntop doesn't work for me either now since I upgraded, and it won't uninstall, reinstall, etc, etc

    Seperate issue.  Please do not mangle issues in threads as it will kill the flow and make me ignore it.



  • FTP worked properly once I did what you suggested with 0.94 and upgrading to 0.94.2 (on 0.94.8, still no issues)

    Thanks

    ntop was broken on .93.2

  • I quoted from this thread.  Sorry it's off topic yeh :).



  • I have FTP Problem with Dual-WAN.
    The connection is very-very slow even I turn-on userland FTP-Proxy.
    Need suggestion here.

    FTP and dual wan is not compatible.

  • "Is dual wan compatible with FTP?
    Short answer: no.

    If you are trying to use the FTP proxy and DUAL wan or Load Balancing this will not work due to the fact that we have to redirect traffic to a userland proxy when the helpers are enabled.

    However, the long answer is that you can utilize dual wan ftp if you use a 1:1 or port-forward the large port ranges required by the server which in most cases of newer ftp daemons is configurable."

    ok  ;)… and how about the long answer?  ??? ???

    I already use NAT 1:1, Passive FTP (port 55000-60000) and disable userland FTP-Proxy.
    Download is slow, but upload is fine.
