    Hi to everyone . I have a big problem with my proFTPd . It don't work via external ip, it works perfectly only when I type . I have activated passive mode and forwarded these ports from router to but it's same problem . When I type ftp://myglobalip it ask me for a password, and when I typed it don't do anything, just load.

    I've read maybe I have a firewall . How to config this firewall ? how to disable it ? My distribution is debian 5 lenny minimal installation .

    Here is my proftpd.conf

    # /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf -- This is a basic ProFTPD configuration file.

    Please help me !

    edit: seems to be a problem with ports forwarding because if I remove this forwarding from router, the error it's same . Maybe my debian 5 lenny have a default firewall or something? I already tried iptables -F , without any success.

    I guess the problem is the firewall on your router...

    I have a similar problem, perhaps the same.
    My problem is that I configured the passive ports bus the server arent using them
    First of all look for a line in ftp client conexión like this:
    227 Entering Passive Mode (xx,xx,xx,xx,214,225)
    The last two numbers is the port that the client is going to use ((214*256)+225)=55009

    In my case it is not the same one that the one I configured, so If some body can help me too....
