Mandrake single network firewall & ftp ?!?!?!
We've installed a Mandrake single network firewall here (finally they're doing some linux stuff instead of win2k) but we cannot seem to connect to ftp sites through that thing even though we allowed the internal network to connect to anyone on any protocol, does anyone know anything about this.
In the near future we also need to have vpn connections go through that thing and we found the needed patches, but cannot find anything about the ftp problem, please help. We also want to use this as a product which we can sell (just installation costs actually) to some of our customers.
Thanx a lot,

PASV Mode FTP
Mandrake SNF uses ftp PASV mode by default configuration. In this mode ftp will work with ftp clients that have a PASV config setting (eg Cute, WS). But most web browsers cannot browse ftp sites.
I seem to recall a setting somewhere in the SNF web gui that that allowed non PASV ftp streams but do not remember where off hand.

Well, I already had found it, edit /etc/bastille.firewall.conf and change PASV_FTP from Y to N or viceversa, I can't remember anymore, but it was something like that.
When you do this, don't forget to also edit the template for this config file, otherwise your changes will be removed on a reboot.
