FTP Passive Private IP Translation To Public

  • Using vsftp on fedora core 5. Both active and passive transfer work. However to get passive transfer to work I have to hard code my ip in the vsftpd config.


    Otherwise it sends the private ip assigned to the server to the client. Can pftpx do a translation? Or is there a better way than manually changing the server config each time my ip changes

  • Nevermind…. When I first tried this I didn't have pasv_address defined at all in the config. pftpx does translate it. I set pasv_address= the internal ip and it works great both internal and external.

    Confusing as I swear it didn't work before.
