Pix 501 FTP

Posted on 2004-11-01

I'm logging into a Pix 501 over SSH and I'm configuring this Pix to allow FTP connections from the outside.
Everytime I start and enter the first line of the config it crashes the Pix and I have to have someone pull power.
What is the deal?  Are these not correct?

static (inside,outside) interface netmask 0 0

access-list 100 permit tcp any any eq ftp

access-group 100 in interface outside

    Accepted Solution

    You want to use this, adding "tcp" and the specific port. What is happening with the way you are trying it is that ALL ports will try to be forwarded to that inside host, including port 22 for your SSH session..

      static (inside,outside) tcp interface ftp ftp netmask
      static (inside,outside) tcp interface ftp-data ftp-data netmask

    access-list 100 permit tcp any any eq ftp
    access-list 100 permit tcp any any eq ftp-data

    access-group 100 in interface outside
