Pfsense Virgin - Ftp Port Forwarding Issues
« on: November 25, 2017, 10:02:25 pm »
Pfsense Virgin, I am switching from my personal Netgear Pro-Secure UTM 150 firewall – EOL.
Installed pfsense v 2.4.2 latest release (amd64) on the current hardware: (spare hardware)

HP ProLiant DL320e Gen8 v2
•   Intel Xeon CPU E3-1220 v3 @ 3.10Ghz
•   16GB of ECC RAM
•   Dual Pro Samsung SSD’s  (None RAID)
•   (2) 1 Gbps on board NICs (Using for WAN1 / WAN2)
•   (4) 1 Gbps Intel NIC card install (Using for LAN1-LAN4)
I KNOW OVER KILL!!! – Great Deal for some freelance work

First, installation and learning curve went very well without any issues setting up WAN1 ISP gateway with a block of 5 static IPs using Virtual IPs. (Few Hours…)

Second, setup remote gateways for remote login for (VNC) outside my network to Static IP computers (Port Forwarding) 

Third, I setup a DMZ on LAN4 for wireless APs and (2) WIFI Webcams with static IPs (Port Forwarding) – few hours learning curve.

Nonetheless, I must have been lucky as a one handed and one-eyed man in a hacking contest up to this point trying to setup my simple FTP port forwarding… I been working on this for days. The learning curve from all the above on port forwarding is not shining a light… Note: I am trying to mirror my working Netgear setup without any changes until I can learn more advance pfsense skills.

Currently, I have port forwarding FTP port 21 setup for two different FTP servers which neither one is working…
•   WAN1
•   TCP
•   Destination Public Port (Static WAN IP)
•   Destination port range (FTP – FTP)
•   Redirect target IP (LAN Static Server Port)
•   Redirect Target Port (FTP)

PfSense is running circles around all of the routers I have use in the last 15 years – this software is Astonishing in Speed and Capabilities! – Put New Life into an Old Network!       

Can some pfsense expert assist me with some insight on how to setup my ftp services?

Sincerely,
Data Pimp

Try SFTP rather than FTP.
