This is my first post. I have searched through all other threads looking for an answer, so I am hopeful that one of you may have a solution. I am running Fedora 9 64bit, fresh install. I have vino/vnc running for ease of administration along with SSH. I have pure-ftpd configured and running (using the command line options: pure-ftpd -4AbBEGKHirZl puredb:/etc/pureftpd.pdb -p 50000:50100 &). My issue is this: I can connect to this server with FTP from my windows PC with CORE FTP using PASV, but I can not connect to it using ACTIVE. When I connect from command line, I get the following: (I have replaced IP replaced with XX.XX.XX.XXX) 220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd ---------- 220-You are user number 1 of 50 allowed. 220-Local time is now 03:03. Server port: 21. 220-This is a private system - No anonymous login 220 You will be disconnected after 15 minutes of inactivity. User (XX.XX.XX.XXXnone)): ftptestuser 331 User ftptestuser OK. Password required Password: 230-User ftptestuser has group access to: 501 230 OK. Current directory is / ftp> ftp> ftp> ls 500 I won't open a connection to 0.0.0.0 (only to XX.XX.XX.XXX) 425 No data connection ftp> I have ports 1-5000 tcp and udp open. I can FTP in to the service from the Fedora box console and connect in ACTIVE mode. What makes it even stranger is that if I shut down pure-ftpd and run vsftp I am able to connect from the Windows box using active, so it is not a firewall/network issue. I really need some of the features of pure-ftpd for the application I am using. Any suggestions would be very welcome. One note too. It took me a good deal of time to figure out why I couldn't connect in the first place. It seems that when you disable the firewall in Fedora 9 64bit, it clamps down on FTP.
