Re: Patch for gss ftp client to work through stateful firewalls

Thanks for the correction.

I put into proftpd an option AllowFWCCC and AllowCCC. With AllowFWCCC  only
PORT and PASV commands are accepted in clear, so no other command can be
injected (The stateful firewall will control the correctness of
source/destination addresses) . This patch is done for setups where a
(secure) ftp dropbox is located in a DMZ (third leg of a FW) and from
internal you allow gss ftp connection and from the Internet you use SSL
protected connections. This would allow a secure file transfer and
authentication (since the server doesn't need to connect to the kdc) from
the secure internal network to the DMZ.

Is this type of setup common ?
Don't  other  people  experience firewall problems ?

Thank you and Regards
