Can't get to certain ftp sites through my firewall


Here is my firewall. I'm not very good at this yet so it's kind of slammed together. It's probably a complete mess.

Either way, I can't seem to get to certain ftp sites. I am, however, able to get to other ftp sites.

FWVER=0.7

echo -e "\n\nLoading simple rc.firewall version $FWVER..\n"

IPTABLES=/sbin/iptables
DEPMOD=/sbin/depmod
MODPROBE=/sbin/modprob

EXTIF="eth0"
INTIF="eth1"
echo " External Interface: $EXTIF"
echo " Internal Interface: $INTIF"

echo -en " loading modules: "

echo " - Verifying that all kernel modules are ok"
$DEPMOD -a

echo "----------------------------------------------------------------------"

echo -en "ip_tables, "
$MODPROBE ip_tables

echo -en "ip_conntrack, "
$MODPROBE ip_conntrack

echo -en "ip_conntrack_ftp, "
$MODPROBE ip_conntrack_ftp

echo -en "ip_conntrack_irc, "
$MODPROBE ip_conntrack_irc

echo -en "iptable_nat, "
$MODPROBE iptable_nat

echo -en "ip_nat_ftp, "
$MODPROBE ip_nat_ftp

echo -e "ip_nat_irc"
$MODPROBE ip_nat_irc

echo "----------------------------------------------------------------------"

echo -e " Done loading modules.\n"

echo " Enabling forwarding.."
echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

$IPTABLES -A FORWARD -i $EXTIF -o $INTIF -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
$IPTABLES -A FORWARD -i $INTIF -o $EXTIF -j ACCEPT
$IPTABLES -A FORWARD -j LOG

echo " This should take care of PASV ftp input"
$IPTABLES -A INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT

echo " Enabling SNAT (MASQUERADE) functionality on $EXTIF"
$IPTABLES -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o $EXTIF -j MASQUERADE

echo " This is the line you wrote for port forwarding."
$IPTABLES -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp -m multiport --dport 666 -j DNAT --to-destination 192.168.0.4

$IPTABLES -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp -m multiport --dport 21 -j DNAT --to-destination 192.168.0.4

echo -e "\nrc.firewall-2.4 v$FWVER done.\n"

It's rc.firewall-2.4 but I edited it some.

Just incase I didn't mention, I can access this ftp from the linux box, just not any of the computers sharing the connection and I'm using flashfxp.

Thanks in advance.

[EDIT]
I had to remove my initial comments because I re-read your post and realized my mistake.

Ok... the script I have extracted in the quote above will open everything up and you should be able to access your ftp.

I'll look through this script after lunch to find the cause of your woes but in the meantime, you should check out some of the recent IPTABLES threads on this forum... they'll help you setup a more secure firewall - default policies of ACCEPT mean "come on in!!"

Hmm... off the top of my head, it looks like your DNAT rules may be interferring with proper communications. Is your 192.168.0.4 machine is an ftp server and an irc server? (Server, not client)

I think your DNAT'ing rules to port forward 10060/61 are the cause.

For an internal ftp server, you only need the rule
$IPTABLES -t nat -A PREROUTING -i $EXTIF -p tcp --dport 21 -j DNAT --to-destination 192.168.0.4
