Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a bunch of LXC containers with vsftpd daemon installed on each. I would like to forward/proxy traffic from dom0 server port 21 to particular containers based on ftp user name e.g. or domain part to be more precise.

I tried to use ftp-proxy and it works perfectly but no SSL support. Frox has SSL support but only between proxy and ftpd server.

I found that squid can do FTP and SSL but I have never done anything with squid and I cannot tell if it's suitable. Maybe you could provide me with information in that matter or give any other idea?

Eventually I will end up with multiple iptables DNAT's pointing directly to containers' vsftpd daemon but common port 21 would look great.
