ftp from LAN to big wide world
80% of the time when i try ftp from my workstation (sorry... fiddleaboutwithstuffstation :)) i get a 500 timeout, some sites work, but they mostly don't let me transfer files etc... i can log in frmo, and change directories etc... but when i mput something.... same for under windows, but i dunno why, cos 'm thick...
Everythign else works perfectly i think, or at least i don't think any other problems i have are because of it... My ipchains just blindly allows everything:
/sbin/ipchains -A forward -i ppp0 -j MASQ
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
which is dumb.. but hey... live fast get hacked...
just wondering if u've tried connecting in passive mode (ie u'r ftp client is it set to PORT or PASSIVE)?
u'r masq is simple so either 1 of them should work. hmmmm!
i maybe wrong but just a thought. isn't there a module for ipchains that handles ftp connections? maybe that's what u need 2 load as well.
hmm, yeah that'll be it. *prat*
ahh well... so every time i weant to ftp from my pokeittillitbreaksstation i have to use ftp -p. suck. I found mention of ip_masq_ftp.o, but I take it that a nonstandard kernel module, too much hassle getting that one going...
