Re: can't ftp through IP Masq

I did some research, and the ip_masq_ftp.o module is automatically compiled

I re-read the IP Masq howto at http://ipmasq.cjb.net and I had included
everything I needed to have in the kernel. I had compiled everything into
the kernel, with nothing compiled as modules - that shouldn't hurt, should

There were a few items that I don't have which were shown at that web site.
They put a lot of settings in the /etc/rc.d/rc.firewall file on a RedHat
system. Where would I put that in my potato system, in case some of those
settings help?

Here's what my problem is (for those just joining): I have IP Masqing set
up on a potato system, and everything works through it except ftp. The ftp
clients on machines on the private network connect to external sites, but
never are able to get a listing of the files or even retrieve files from
those systems.
