Trying to ftp files from a windows system(xp) to an AIX 4.x box through bordermanager VPN. They freeze, then AIX considers them there, with 0 file size but as running processes. I have to kill the process before I can delete them. Is this a known problem to anyone? Not being able to ftp through vpn to an AIX box like this?
Distribution: FreeBSD,Debian, RH, ok well most of em...
ok only thing that comes to mind is FTP passive mode. Why I said firewalls and I now hear some VPN's have to explicitly state passive mode for FTP. What happens when you ftp is the originating port is 21 but when you start to transfer it opens a port in the higher ranges.
