I am attempting to set up an ftp server on an internal network. (All hosts are 192.168.1.*) I am using vsftp, but stumbling over an iptables related issue. Also, this is Fedora Core 3.


I am guessing that I am getting blocked by a closed port. I've done some research, and generally understand the concept, but don't understand how to get past what appears to be a closed port issue without opening up a large range of ports. While that may not be distasteful on my private network, it is not desirable if I eventually make this machine available to the outside world.

Whats the content of your iptables script, (Sanitize any important info

Actually, the iptables are the defaults provided with FC3. I have used the GUI to "open" SSH and FTP. As noted in my original post, my problem disappears if I stop the iptables (/etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables stop)

What is the shape/configuration of your Network?

All machines are attached to a Linksys router within the same building. Some are wireless, but I don't think that is an issue. All machines, including the server, are in the IP range of 192.168.1.X with a netmask. In short, *all* machines at this point are on a private network, on the same LAN.

Where is the delivery target in relation to your server?

If I understand your question, the physcial relationship is that they are in adjacent rooms.
