Troubleshooting FTP Connections¶
pfSense® software does not have a built-in FTP proxy, but one is available as an add-on package.
Rules to allow FTP¶
If problems are encountered with FTP, check the rules to/from FTP devices, ensure that both the control port and PASV range are allowed.
Disable the FTP Proxy and attempt the connection again
Use SCP/SFTP which only needs one port to traverse the firewall since it is wrapped in SSH (a safe AND simple way of traversing a firewall!)
Don’t use FTP (highly recommended option)
