Re: FTP. Man I am feeling dumb!

Just re-asking the question in case someone might have the answer:

If you don't want to use the firewall client what is the basic configuration
for an FTP client such as WS-FTP32 Pro or CuteFTP? I can't get any FTP
clients except a browser to work.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks

I believe that if you are using the Firewall Client... you shouldn't have to
make any proxy setting changes in your FTP client. The Firewall Client
should take care of everything for you...

I run the Firewall Client and have not had to make any FTP client
configuration changes.

I guess my question is more client oriented. If I go to ftp://ftp.mcafee.com
in Internet Explorer or Netscape it works. I can get dir listings and
download files. When I use WS-FTP32 or CuteFTP, however, the client connects
to the server (in this case 10.20.30.20:8080) and then stops with a message
that says "Socket connected. Waiting for welcome message". The client then
times out and fails the connection.

Within the clients there are numerous settings for firewall and proxy. There
are "SITE hostname", "Transparent", "USER with no logon", "Proxy OPEN" and
"USER remoteID@remoteHost fireID," just to name a few.

What is the configuration of the client to allow it to work through a proxy?
Under IE I had to change the browser to communicate in PORT mode rather than
PASV.

Since the browser works I am inclined to believe that the server is
configured properly. It is the client config that is killing me.

Thanks

FTP uses two well known ports (services): ports 20, and 21.  One is
used for 'control', and the other is used for 'transfer' - if you can
get into an FTP site and issue commands to view directory listings,
etc, but are unable to download/upload, it's usually because the
'transfer' channel is  blocked by a firewall.

Add a protocol rule that allows FTP, using the default ISA protocol
definitions for FTP.  I wouldn't advise setting up an IP filter -
just use the built-in protocol definitions to allow FTP transfers.
