Hi, I'm trying to get the pure-ftpd working on an ispconfig3 server (latest version on Ubuntu 14.04), the server is behind a load-balancer (haproxy 1.5). being behind the load-balancer, I need to configure it for passive mode, and masquerade a public ip. I have another server behind this load balancer, running proftpd. which is working fine. I have the following iptables rules on the load-balancer: -A PREROUTING -d 18.104.22.168/32 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 6100:6200 -j DNAT --to-destination 192.168.51.201 -A PREROUTING -d 22.214.171.124/32 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 6100:6200 -j DNAT --to-destination 192.168.51.153 -A POSTROUTING -s 192.168.51.201/32 -j SNAT --to-source 126.96.36.199 -A POSTROUTING -s 192.168.51.153/32 -j SNAT --to-source 188.8.131.52 the haproxy is configured with: listen ubuntu12-ftp bind 184.108.40.206:21 mode tcp bind-process 1 option tcplog balance leastconn server ubuntu12 192.168.51.201:21 check listen hyh-ftp bind 220.127.116.11:21 #transparent mode tcp bind-process 1 log global option tcplog server hyh 192.168.51.153:21 #send-proxy on the server with proftpd, I had to edit the configuration to get it to work, these are the relevant settings DefaultAddress 192.168.51.201 PassivePorts 6100 6200 MasqueradeAddress 18.104.22.168 AllowForeignAddress on for pure-ftpd, I've created the following files in etc/pure-ftpd/conf.d ForcePassiveIP contents: 22.214.171.124 PassivePortRange contents: 6100 6200 when I try to ftp to this server I get: Status: Connecting to 126.96.36.199:21...

I've tried using transparent, or send-proxy in the haproxy configuration, neither helped. thanks lee.
