    Passive FTP


    My iptables policies are DROP and I just allow the ports I need to use. I can't, however, do passive ftp transfers. Does anyone know whether this uses a different port/protocol than ftp?

    with me its the other way around.. i can only do passive FTP connections.

    run these commands to load the IPtables FTP modules and give it another go:
    Code:
    /sbin/modprobe ip_conntrack_ftp
    /sbin/modprobe ip_nat_ftp
