    Hi, i have this problem on any website and account hosted by my server.
    I can only connect via ftp on macosx and fetch (ftpclient). Every other software doesn't work (also filezilla on mac)

    I have the last version of ispconfig installed.

    Any Ideas??
    Thank u

    What is your setup - are you using pure-ftpd?

    Are there any errors in your system log (via ISPConfig 3 monitor tab) ?

    I figured out why Fetch client works and the others don't. It's the MLSD command, fetch use LIST -al instead.

    I asked to my hoster and he said "You need to modprobe the iptables ftp helper and make sure you have appropriate iptables entries."


    I simply executed this command /sbin/modprobe ip_conntrack_ftp
    and now ftp works like a charm

    I also added the command to /etc/rc.local to execute it on reboot.
