Dual WAN and FTP upload problem on pfSense 2.0.3



  • Hi,

    I have a problem with FTP upload (from LAN to outside, using primary WAN connection). It works fine for one or two files and after that I've got timeout with various FTP clients. Only ~5 MB of the file is uploaded and then on FileZilla for example I see this error:

    Could not write to transfer socket: ECONNABORTED - Connection aborted

    and file can not be uploaded. It strange that if I test on two workstations on LAN it works on one, but not on the other in random order…

    On similar pfSense setup I have no problem at all with the same FTP server (Pure-FTPd on my hosting provider). What can cause this problems?

    If this helps I have manual Outbound NAT with these rules:

    WAN  192.168.182.10/32 udp/* * udp/5060 * 5060 NO SIP Special 
    WAN 192.168.181.0/24 * * 500 * * YES  ISAKMP
    WAN 192.168.181.0/24 * * * * * NO LAN to WAN 
    WAN 127.0.0.0/8 * * * * 1024:65535 NO  localhost to WAN



  • It was not pfSense, it was defective media converter and/or SFP connector. After replace FTP works as usual.
