I have a firewall with iptables rules (kernel 3.10), until now I have
always been able to connect to FTP server in passive or active mode.
Here are the rules I use:
iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp -i $INTERNAL_INTERFACE -o $EXTERNAL_INTERFACE
-s $INTERNAL_LAN --sport $UNPRIVPORTS --dport 21 -m state --state NEW -j
I have a problem with the FTP server of one hoster. I connect well, but
the data do not go into passive mode.
I looked at the packets that pass through the firewall with iptraf and I
noticed that the ftp-data connection that was on a different IP address.
Connect to the FTP server (yy.yy.10.2) :
192.168.11.66:59577 --> yy.yy.10.2:21
ftp-data transmission on another IP address (yy.yy.10.10) :
192.168.11.66:32777 --> yy.yy.10.10:30527
ftp-data transmission on the other IP address is blocked by my firewall,
it is not considered as RELATED.
By default the FTP connection tracking module nf_conntrack_ftp checks
that the advertised address matches the source address. You may try to
add the option loose=1 when loading the module.
Or you could set your FTP client to use extended passive mode (EPSV),
which does not advertise a passive address.
Thank you for the help.
The "loose = 1" option works well, I am able to connect and list files.
I have not found EPSV setting in filezilla or in the ftp command line
