Hi Experts,

Need help solving this issue, I publish my FTP site over my sonicwall TZ200 but when I’m trying to connect from an external source, i’m disconnected.  (screen1)

I already try disabling this hidden feature (http://www.asktheadmin.com/2008/07/my-sonicwall-wont-let-me-ftp-error-ftp-pasv-response-bounce-attack-dropped.html), without success, still disconnected. (screen2)

Of course, when i connect internally, everything is fine..  :(
Any help appreciate..

Thanks,

What rules do ou have? I set up my FTP or both active and passive. So I do the standard 21 plus a range of 100 up higher.

Has this ever worked? If not, you probably do not have the rules set up correctly. Did you use the Sonicwall Wizard to create the ftp (public) server? It wil guarantee you have all the required pieces.

Also setting up the external address in your FTP software so it resolves both internally and externally is crucial. I use a subdomain FTP.domain.com and my internal dns points to the FTP server ip.

Hi experts,  
Yes, I used the wizard to publish the server. internally i'm using filezilla server,  
My internal DNs point to the internal IP 192.168......

Yes. For passive to work I had to set that to FTP.domain.com, set a static port range, and forward that port range in the sonicwall.

If you use filezilla client, you can force active which doesn't need these settings, just a port 21 forward. But if client type people will be using it definitely get passive working.

Hi everyone,

Finally the issue wasn't on the firewall..  I build another VM and put filezilla on it and everything is working fine.  Only thing, i need to leave disable the FTP PASV bounced attack on the diag.html page.

Thanks,
