    Default FTP Issue

    I have several FTP servers and need to provide access to them through the untangle. Some use different IPs but default FTP ports. Some use different ports on the same IP. I have fiddled with this thing for too long. I could really use some help with this. I have read all of the things on setting the passive ports in the registry and several other things. Can someone help, I could even pay a little? Not sure how the Untangle support works.

    You need properly configured FTP hosts for PASV support. (IIS is near impossible to make this happen by the way)

    You then need forwards for the control port, and the PASV port range per server.

    You CAN use a single public IP address to host multiple FTP servers, but you cannot use any given public IP's port for more than 1 FTP service.

    I've literally written books on this topic in these forums, so I'd be shocked if you read them all. The oldest and most complete thread is here: https://forums.untangle.com/tips-tri...-firewall.html

    If you have any specific questions feel free to ask.

    I have definitely read several of them. I am running IIS, but I am not tied to IIS. What would you recommend? I give up on this and then come back to it about once a month for the last 4 months. Get pissed off and give up again. Just put public IPs on my FTP servers and say F-it. I have 254 public IPs.

    Honestly, that's the easiest way to do it. Bridge an interface to External, slap a public address on the FTP server, and the Untangle bridge sees the traffic in and out.

    FTP is an ancient protocol, and the IIS implementation is almost unusable.

    So how does the bridging work? Right now I just have the VM right on and external facing switch port with the public IP.

    If you do the bridging then do I have to set up port forwarding rules, or NAT or anything else?

    What would be a better way for uploading and downloading large files?

    I have implemented a bunch of SFTP servers. Which ones do you guys like best?
