about two weeks ago my ftp server suddenly stopped working in passive mode.
trying to connect from windows machine: "Make sure you have permission
to open this folder. The connection was reset by server."
using ftp from linux:
"421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection
Passive mode refused. Turning off passive mode.
No control connection for command: Transport endpoint is not connected
I have the passive mode enabled in vsftpd.conf, and it's been working
for last three years, except for last couple weeks.
if I add "pasv_address=xx.xxx.xxx.xx" with my IP address it lets people
connect to my server, but this is awkward since I have dynamic IP from
I do not remember touching any config files lately which would have
something to do with vsftpd or iptables?
I'm running F9 x86_64 and F8 i386 on x86_64 hardware, should this matter.
