I'm having a nightmare trying to get my FTP server up and running.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'm running RH7, currently with no serious problems, I'm running apache, samba and a few other bits and pieces. I'm now using it mostly for back-up purposes and would like to make use of the FTP server from outside of my own small network.
The FTP server is wu-ftp ver wu-2.6.1(1)
I can use the FTP server, login, move files etc from within my own network, but as soon as I try to access the machine from outside of my Lan, the firewall steps in. I have setup a Firewall rule, to allow bi-directional transfer on both ports 20 and 21 but what I notice is that when I try to connect from a Windows machine, the block is made on ports 36000 and various other high ports.
I have tried setting the clients up to use Passive mode, but it does not make any differance.
What I have also noticed is that if I try to connect from another Linux/Unix enviroment, then all is fine, no blocks at all.
I simply don't wish to open up such a huge range of ports on my Firewall.
