pix 501 ftp problem

Experts,
I just recently built a sever using Windows Server 2008 R2 and set up an FTP site using IIS 7.0.
The server currently lives behind a pix 501 firewall.  From any machine behind the pix 501 I can ftp to the site and also connect via telnet ( telnet X.X.X.9  21) with no problems.  When i try to do both these tests from outside the firewall it just kind of hangs and then stops trying.
I can remote desktop to the server without problems either.

I am a basic pix user but I would appreciate any advice as to why it might be failing.
Also, if you see any glaring problems in my config ( see below)  I would appreciate you pointing them out as well.
Thanks
John

Use this website:

http://www.t1shopper.com/tools/port-scan/

Scan those two IPs (.9 and .10) using the "check all" option. What does that tell you?

Here is your ACL:
access-list timewarner permit icmp any any

access-list timewarner permit tcp any host X.X.X.10 eq 3389

access-list timewarner permit tcp any host X.X.X.9 eq ftp

access-list timewarner permit tcp any host X.X.X.9 eq ftp-data

According to this, you are only allowing RDP to host .10. You are allowing FTP to .9.


Did you say you are able to RDP to .9?? You shouldn't be able to.

What you have stated is correct.
I can ONLY remote desktop to .10  and should be able to FTP to .9 but it does not allow me to.

When I try the following command ( telnet X.X.X.9 21) from a laptop inside the firewall it gives me:
220 Microsoft FTP Service

When i try the same command from outside the firewall it gives me a blinking cursor for several minutes and just times out.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Also, please verify the windows firewall is off for troubleshooting purposes.

Windows Firewall is off on the server.
I used the tool  ( checked all option) and got the following results:

X.X.X.10
is responding on port 3389 (ms-wbt-server).
( All other ports are not responding)

X.X.X.9
is responding on port 21 (ftp).
( All other ports are not responding)

Since you are getting back a "responding on port 21", I don't believe the issue lies in your PIX.

Try this website:

https://www.wormly.com/test_ftp_server

Can it connect to your FTP server?

sat444Author Commented:
When I seen I was getting a response on port 21 I realized the firewall was doing it's job.
Just for the hell of it I rebooted the server and sure enough when it came back up I can now
telnet to the ip address via port 21 and can also get to it via my broswer and cmd prompt.

Thanks for your help.

The port scan tool helped me realize it was not my firewall and allowed me to focus on just the ftp server itself.
