FTP access denied with DMZ

    I have server (Fedora 7) with IspConfig installed and running. Everything works pretty well except the ftp access for the sites. The ftp web based is working perfect.

    Time ago I setup the same system and the FTP worked fine. The only one difference between my old system and the newone is the use of a DMZ configured in the router. In my first setup I had a cable with a public address directly connected to the server. Now I had a DMZ that relates a public address with a local address which points to the server. Probably that is the origin of the problem.

    As a consequence, I have to give shell access and update the sites using SFTP but, with shell access and administrative permissions, an User can go up into the path /var/www/web_n and see the content of other sites.

    If there any possibility of get back on the normal FTP system and avoid the use of the SFTP with shell access ?

    Thanks a lot.

    In the file proftpd.conf, please try to comment out the proftpd_ispconfig.conf file include line and restart proftpd.

    Thanks Till,

    Before I posted the questions I took a look for a solution to my problem. I think I saw this asnwer before and in tha threat, the guy ask you "Why this solves the problem". I also remeber that there is some functionality that is lost by doing what you suggest.

    I'll test if my clients have ftp service indepedently one from the other after I do what you mentioned. But I would like to know if the DMZ has something to be in this problem.

    This only affects anonymous FTP, nothing else.
