I have an Ubuntu 8.04 server with shorewall 4.0.6 installed. When I try to upload files using FTP, SCP, or cURL the file upload stalls almost immediatly and eventually times out. If I turn off shorewall then the uploads work fine. I don't have any rules that specifically allow FTP and I'm not too concerned with it, but I do need to be able to upload via 22 (SCP) and 80 & 443 (cURL).
This is what my rules look like:
COMMENT Allow Server to respond to any web (80) and SSL (443) requests ACCEPT net $FW tcp 80 ACCEPT $FW net tcp 80 ACCEPT net $FW tcp 443 ACCEPT $FW net tcp 443 COMMENT Allow Server to respond to SNMPD (161) requests ACCEPT net $FW udp 161 COMMENT Allow Server to respond to MySQL (3306) requests (for MySQL Graphing) ACCEPT net $FW tcp 3306 COMMENT Allow Server to respond to any SSH connection attempts, and to SSH out. SSH/ACCEPT net $FW SSH/ACCEPT $FW net COMMENT Allow Server to make DNS Requests out. DNS/ACCEPT $FW net COMMENT Default "close" anything else. Ping/REJECT net $FW ACCEPT $FW net icmp #LAST LINE -- ADD YOUR ENTRIES BEFORE THIS ONE -- DO NOT REMOVE
I expected the top four
ACCEPT lines to allow inbound and outbound traffic over 80 and 443 and I expected the two
SSH/ACCEPT lines to allow inbound and outbound trffic over 22, including SCP.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
/etc/shorewall/policy contains the following (all lines above are commented out):
# # Allow all connection requests from teh firewall to the internet # $FW net ACCEPT # # Policies for traffic originating from the Internet zone (net) # Drop (ignore) all connection requests from the Internet to the firewall # net all DROP info # THE FOLLOWING POLICY MUST BE LAST # Reject all other connection requests all all REJECT info #LAST LINE -- ADD YOUR ENTRIES ABOVE THIS LINE -- DO NOT REMOVE
