Well, you cant do it there, because you need to adjust the firewall rules implemented ON the vpn qube. > > > What method are you using to set up the vpn? > > > > I used the new community vpn setup > Right - but there are 2 methods outlined on that github page (if that's what you mean by community vpn) - 3 if you include "vpn on sys-net". Did you follow the "iptables and CLI scripts" section? There's an added issue that you will have to consider and that is the nature of FTP connections - when a client connects to a server, the server may create a link back to a port specified in the original connection: this is non-passive(active) ftp. If your FTP server does this then you will have to enable a route through to the client qube. The client may instead send a PASV command - then the server *may* send back a listening port number, and the client will create a link to that port. So there are 4 possibilities, and the firewall rules you need will depend on what are the capabilities of the server. Best check on that. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
