Question pure-ftpd dont allow external connections


I got a little problem with the pure-ftpd on my ispconfig 3 server, while moving the server to a new location and a new ip were given then non of the ftp accounts are working from external, if i use it direct on the server then it works.

Are there any place i need to change a ip adress?

Thanks in advance

The IP address is not used in the FTP setup, so changing the IP haas no influence on pure-ftpd. For me it looks more like a issue with your firewall. Ensure that you do not run a fireall in your new location that blocks FTP.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

I had to tweak the ForcePassiveIP setting in pure-ftpd.conf to get PASV to work from a server behind a NAT router.
