[Shorewall-users] ftp works in a strange way.....or....
Fri, 26 Apr 2002 19:13:52 +0100
I used a squid proxy to handle http(s) and ftp, but for sone reasons I
don't want to use a proxy any more using manual proxy configuration
settings. So I tried the transparent squid settings and could use http,
but no ftp or https :-( AFAIK this is a "problem" with squid, so I
"played around" with shorewall and some options and now I have the
I added IP_FORWARDING="on" in the shorewall.conf and have the following
rules for ftp:
ACCEPT fw net tcp ftp
ACCEPT fw local tcp ftp
So can anynone explain to me, why my ftp clients are allowed to connenct
to ftp-servers at the internet??
Thanks for hints!
