pure-ftpd and ssl/tls
2 Attachment(s)
Hello all,

I want my ftp connection more secure, so I edited /etc/pure-ftpd/pure-ftpd.conf and un-commented TLS and gave it value 2.
After that I created the key

openssl req -x509 -nodes -newkey rsa:1024 -keyout /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem -out /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem
and chmod 600 pure-ftpd.pem.

Now I start Filezilla and change the log in methode from SFTP to FTPES and log in.

Filezilla ask me for the password and ask me to accept the certifiacate, to end with:
  • GnuTLS Error -53: error in the push function
  • Connection timed out
  • Failed to retrieve directory listing
Information given by Filezilla in pure-ftpd.txt
Info from /var/log/messages in varlogmessages.txt

Help would be apreciated.

Anyone ???

I had this issue just today. I'll assume you're using iptables to filter network traffic. It won't work with FTP/SSL, because it uses a wide port range and the ftp module that dynamically changes firewall rules can't see the FTP commands since they are encrypted. You must disable iptables or open all ports > 1024
