I know this is an age old question: how to setup ftp server behind monowall.
I have searched the forum and read the monowall scratchpad. But I still can't get my ftp server to
work. I am hoping someone could enlighten me.
Here is my setup.
internet ----> monowall ----> switch ----> ftp server
monowall is 192.168.1.1
ftp server is 192.168.1.2. I am using FileZilla on windows XP as some have suggested.
Here are my monowall config
Firewall NAT Inbound
lf proto Ext. port range NAT IP Int. port range Description
WAN TCP 20 192.168.1.2 20 ftp
server port 20
WAN TCP 21 192.168.1.2 21 ftp
server port 21
WAN TCP 55000-61000 192.168.1.2 55000-61000 ftp server
Firewall NAT outbound
Interface source Destination Target Description
WAN 192.168.1.0/24 * 192.168.1.2 ftp server
Proto Source Port Destination Port Destination
TCP * * 192.168.1.2 21 FTP
TCP * * 192.168.1.2 55000-61000 FTP server
I have setup filezilla with passive mode settings
External server IP address for passive mode transfer -> use the following IP -> 192.168.1.2
I have also checked the tick box
* Don't use external IP for local connections
* use custom port range: 55000 - 61000
When I use ftp client to connect to 192.168.1.2 it work. When I use ftp client from external lan to
connect to my dynamic IP, it can't find the ftp server. by the way, I am using monowall's dyndns
server. Pinging my hostname (eg. hostname.homeunix.net) from the net work.
I have use Shield-up to check and it report that port 21 is open.
I have tried many configuration and still can't get anything to work.
