Problem with ftp and IPtables on a server


I have a pure-ftp setup on a server and I am having problems trying to connect.

With Iptables on:
- I can connect to the ftp from my own server: ftp localhost
- I cannot connect to the ftp from remote machine it says:
Error: Connection timed out
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing


with Iptables off:
- I can connect to the ftp from my own server: ftp localhost
- I also can connect fine from a remote machine.


I need iptables to be on and I don't know what happen. It says that user and password authentication was ok, etc then it times out.



Can anyone here help me ?


thanks

modprobe ip_conntrack_ftp did the trick..

My question now is. Do I need to run modprobe ip_conntrack_ftp every time my server reboots ?


Thanks

Not really. Just add the command to your startup scripts.

Or better yet, find out the proper distro-specific way to automate module loading on the distro you're using.
