[Shorewall-users] FTP problem
Thu, 10 Jan 2002 01:03:41 +0100
I explain here a typical mistake of beginners.
It occured to me and 2 of my mates, obviously we didn't examine the manual
too closely ;)
If it still doesn't work mail again, pls.
The machine where you installed Shorewall is an own zone, named fw (for
So you need to add a rule for the FTP traffic for the machine to accept it,
ACCEPT net fw tcp ftp - all
If you have an FTP-Server on a machine in your network, for example on
machine 192.168.1.20 you need
ACCEPT net local:192.168.1.20 tcp ftp - all
On the other hand you have to explicitely allow EVERY service for your
shorewall-machine. So if you want to FTP *from* it you would have to add
ACCEPT fw net tcp ftp - all
The fw-thing is a bit hidden, but once you got it it'll work smoothly.
I hope I could help you :)
