IPTables on FTP Server

You can connect to a ftp server. When you try to do anything (like ls) the client responds with no route to host or falling back to PORT instead of PASV.


Your server is running IPTables and doesn't know how to open connections for PASV transfers.

Make sure this module is loaded:

# modprobe ip_conntrack_ftp

I load it in my iptables startup script before any rules are applied.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
