A bug

Hello all,

I am using CPF and Filezilla FTP Server.

The problem that I am having is that I need to turn off my firewall for my FTP Server to show the directory listings. If I do not turn the firewall off it refuses to show the directories and all I get is an empty directory listing (this only occurs in PASV mode).

NOTE: This is while the user is successfully connected and not getting a couldn’t retrieve directory listing error.


You will need to make a network monitor rule as follows;

ACTION : Allow
Source IP : ANY
Destination IP : ANY
Source Port : ANY
Destination Port : (Range of ports) 20-21

This rule will aloow an unsolicited inbound connection to your FTP server. Without this rule, CPF will block because it hasn’t been told to allow.

Hope this helps,
Ewen :slight_smile:
