Why cannot FTP to pfsense file system?



  • Dear All,
    I am new to pfsense. I installed it successfully on a CF and managed to successfully ssh to it. However, I am trying to access the pfsense file system in order to do some modifications. I tried to FTP to pfsense using one of the FTP clients like "WS_FTP or SSH Secure FTP", unfortunately, I couldn't make it done and the FTP client cannot establish the connection. It seems that there is no FTP server was installed on pfsense.

    However, my question is how can I FTP to pfsense?

    Your help is much appreciated.

    Regards
    Bassam



  • Have a look at http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,3083.msg18488.html#msg18488 . It tells you how to access the pfSense files remotely. There is no ftp-server on pfSense due to security reasons. Remember, it's a firewall and no server ;)



  • Thanks Hoba
    My mistake that I was trying to logon using admin/pfsense and not roort/pfsense through secure ftp
