FTP Server IBM i - Passive Modus and IP Address
Posted on 2016-11-14
A customer is using the IBM i (V5R4) as a FTP server (with exit points programs caring about security).
The server was accessible from internet even in passive modus but since the firewall was changed, we cannot access it.
According with the IT Staff from the customer (and Cisco support, the new firewall provider):
“the server has to provide the public IP address when going into passive
mode for the transfer to work that's why you're getting that error.
You'll need to speak to vendor of the server for alternatives for it to
provide the public address.”
Unfortunately, I cannot find the way to change this setting in IBM i (I don´t even know it this is possible)
Anybody with experience?
