Ftp problem, cannot connect to lan server via wan ip

  • Hello community,

    sorry for this weird subject, but unfortunately I was not able to find a solution for my problem until now.
    I am running PFSense 1.2.3.with one LAN and a WAN connection. A No-ip task is running on the WAN side to give the opportunity to connect to my ftp server.
    I configured WAN and LAN rules so I am able to connect to this FTP server from the WAN via passive mode. VSFTP is running on this server, but I am not able to connect to this Server from my LAN with a lot of FTP-Clients. The server is located in the same LAN like all other clients.
    I think the problem is, that the passv_address is the wan address and not the expected LAN address, but I can not change this, otherwise no one from the WAN will be able to use this FTP service.
    So now my question, is there a chance to setup my PFSense for using the FTP service out of the LAN?
    Hope someone can give me a hint.
