is it possible to have ftp reverse proxy like http


 client >> proxy >> real server 

i have tried using haproxy

but at the end the real ip of the ftp server is exposed not like http reverse proxy

i am using this with haproxy

listen FTP :21, :10000-10250
    mode tcp
    server ftp01 realserverip:21 check port 21

No, this is not possible. Haproxy does not understand the FTP protocol, and therefore can't do things like re-write the FTP commands and responses that include the true IP address of the FTP server.

If that's a requirement, then you'll have to find a different proxy solution.

  • Our product WinGate can be used as an FTP reverse proxy,. Disclaimer: I work for Qbik who are the authors of WinGate. It's windows only, so I don't know if that would work for you. – Adrien Jul 25 '16 at 23:01
