Try to figure out ....... FTP client hangs on the list files stage .......
sorry im refering to active FTP ........rule set ...
The Idea of using Passive FTP is to avoid creating Rules for Temp Range Access src=1025=5000, dst=1025=5000 for Remote Access… You rather just not be using a Software Firewall at all…
Can you give us more information about you FTP client? Which one are you using (version)? Again you need to know which ports the software is using. Maybe you find some information on their homepage (Support, Community,...). But we still can help you if you give us further information.
By the way I disagree clearly with Ph33r. If he's using a router, then he is quite safe. If he doesn't use a router nor a firewall, he is an easy target for hackers! Never forget about that Ph33r!
I’m behind a Router doesn’t necessary mean I’m protected, in-fact I’m not because I have DMZ set on me… And there are many Routers which doesn’t contain Hardware Firewall Capabilities… So don’t you forget about that!
In Addition; What I had posted here was valid, but hey if you “disagree clearly” then someone better start learning about “Passive Mode”, how it ticks…
I didn't want to offend you at all! I just wanted to make you think. You're completely right, that there are routers which aren't safe at all. If you would have read my comment carefully, you would have noticed that I wrote "... quite safe...".
But you certainly agree, that the more defensive layers you have, the more safe you are. But we should never forget that there's no 100% security.
Depends on what you in Reference too, whether it’s Remote Attempts or?
Tell that to my Rule-set which doesn’t stop blocking any Remote Packets whether it’s over Known or unknown IP or Non-IP Protocols nothing remotely started gets in…
