I have recently setup IPFW on my FreeBSD 5.2 Release server. I am running natd to provide inet to 5 LAN users. It also runs mail, apache web server amongst others.
All seems to be working fine, except for FTP. The first two lines of my firewall file are: add 1000 allow tcp from any to any via ed0 out keep-state add 1100 allow udp from any to any via ed0 out keep-state ... then later in the file: add 3600 allow tcp from any to me dst-port 21 in via ed0 setup keep-state I thought this would be sufficient to establish and maintain FTP connections. I read through the mailing lists and it seems that FTP is tricky with IPFW and natd. Is there a simple solution to this problem? Can i just add some other rule to my firewall? I read something about natd punching through IPFW, is this the answer? Any information will be mouch appreciated.
