    I have been searching for a solution to enable fxp for pure-ftpd on a ispconfig3 debian server.

    I tried to add AllowFXPUser=yes to /etc/default/pure-ftpd-common but I still get a site to site transfer failed!

    In pure-ftpd, I think the command is allowuserfxp and not the one you are using.

    Try this:

    echo "yes" > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/AllowUserFXP

    Restart pure-ftpd


    first line will create AllowUserFXP file, inside of that file, it will writte yes. When restarting pure-ftpd, you should see there a -w parameter. If you see it, FXP is enabled and your problem is other... (maybe some other settings allowing connection from/to in your server, because FXP is highly insecure? you should read pure-ftp doc).

    thanks for the help. Yeah I did that command .. it seems to be a firewall issue with the passive ports.

    You cans set a passive port range in pure-ftpd which has to match the range that you allow in your firewall. Thre is a article in ispconfig faq on that topic.
