Multi-wan setup FTP clients not working



  • I have setup a pfSense box with 2 wan connections.
    Local computers are connected to the internet through policy based routing:
    Computer 1 with mac xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx gets IP 192.168.1.10 by static lease.
    Computer 2 with mac yy:yy:yy:yy:yy:yy gets IP 192.168.1.20 by static lease.

    IP's 192.168.1.10 - 192.168.1.19 are set by firewall rule to use WAN 1.
    IP's 192.168.1.20 - 192.168.1.29 are set by firewall rule to use WAN 2.

    This works well and I did not have any problems until today.
    When local clients want to use FTP they can connect to a(n external) FTP server but when trying to list the directory it fails.
    They get: 425: Can't open data connection for transfer. This error comes up with FileZilla. Of course we tried other clients as well. Even command line FTP, when doing a dir listing it fails.

    I'm posting this in the multi-wan forum as I suspect it has something to do with the multi-wan setup.
    Other pfSense boxes I installed (with 1 WAN connection) do not have this problem…

    Any idea?

    Do you have the FTP proxy package installed? It can only send packets out the default gateway WAN.



  • Installed it, and it works now!!  8)

    Thanks
