FTP Server Timeout with vsFTPd
When attempting to access my FTP server over the internet, the connection times out when the client sends the LIST command:
However, when being accessed from a LAN the server simply sends the list, and the client is able to browse the server directories just fine.
Thanks in advance,
read through this... http://slacksite.com/other/ftp.html Doing passive like you are, unless you are 1) doing connection tracking on your firewall / nat devices 2) specifically limiting FTP data connections to a narrow range of ports explicitly configured to permit access, you're stuck. Option 1 is good. option 2 sucks. option 3 is to use active mode, which may well fail depending on the clients configurations.
You *may* wish to ditch FTP altogether and use SFTP instead, which *only* uses port 22, so is very simple to handle within a network.
