I am having problems when connecting to a remote ftp server that is running on UNIX.When I try to coonect it freezes on the welcome screen and it dos=esnt prompt for password and username.
Connected to 126.96.36.199.
220 Welcome to the Blabla FTP service
It just freezes there nothing, if I try to kill it with control c or z it wont die! I have to log on to another console and do the kill PID thingy. I know I am certain its something to do with firewall or routing because I can connect from else where.
My firewall iptables has the following settings
modprobe ip_nat_ftp ports21
iptables -A FORWARD -m state --state ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp -m tcp -m state --dport 21 --state NEW -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp -m tcp -m state --sport 20 --state RELATED -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp -m tcp -m state --dport 1024:65535 --sport 1024:65535 --state RELATED -j ACCEPT
Anybody out there your help is much appreciated.
