Description Kyrre Ness Sjøbæk 2005-01-15 21:11:58 UTC
Description of problem:
When i check the "ftp" box in s-c-s, only active ftp works - and few
clients uses this by default. Result? Ftp appears to not work.

Reason is that in passive FTP, the server asks the client to connect
to a (random) high port when connection has been established. So
solution is to either enable this module, or open all (or at least a
range, and then specify that range in your ftpd config file) high ports.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
Ftp seems to be "dead"

Expected results:
Ftp should work when checking the ftp box.

Additional info:

This was discussed on fedora-devel-list.

I would also guess that many just disable the firewall altogether.
Especially when behind a NAT HW router.

Bug 151646 has the same request for RHEL 3

Comment 3 Leonid Kanter 2005-07-06 13:58:05 UTC
This bug is present in RHEL4

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2005-07-06 21:21:07 UTC
We are looking at adding this feature to a new version of s-c-securitylevel for
FC5.  If you require it for a RHEL4 update as well, it will need to come through
Feature Tracker as this is going to be a little invasive.

Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2005-11-01 15:54:47 UTC
Please try tomorrow's system-config-securitylevel package and let me know how it
works.  You should check the FTP box in the UI which will automatically enable
ip_conntrack_ftp and cause iptables to restart.

Comment 6 Kyrre Ness Sjøbæk 2005-11-20 19:48:29 UTC
is this fixed on fc4 as well - i don't have any fc3 boxen aviable

Comment 7 Chris Lumens 2005-11-21 17:02:57 UTC
This is fixed in the development packages in Rawhide.
