    Default OpenSuse blocking filezilla

    Has anyone had any problems with Filezilla in OpenSuse?

    I obviously a noob to Suse but after installing 11.4, and filezilla, i cant connect to my ftp server.
    Ive opened ports 21 22 and 990 explicitly in the firewall and all I get is a 425 error Cant Retrieve Directory Listing. It logs me in ok but doesnt allow data connections?

    Have I missed something fundamental during the installation of suse? Ive been on this for two days now.
    Any help much apreciated.
    Thanks

    What about Port 47?

    So you are getting connected, but cannot navigate the directory and you could with what before (Windows? previous openSUSE?).

    I don't know if samba-client is required in this situation. I know when I am looking at my file server, before I install samba-client I get no connection or blank listing of contents. It may be a long shot in this case, though.

    1. What FTP server you're using?
    2. Did you configured it with Yast?
    3. Did you try passive mode?

    check filezilla log file. Bear on mind that latest filezilla versions
    use the MLST and MLSD as default for directory listing. There are some
    proxy/ftp servers that do not understand this commands hence the error
    as filezilla is not falling back to the standard LIST command. There are
    a lot of discussions about that on the filezilla forums to at least
    allow to configure the command or fail back to the LIST if MLST and MLSD
    fail.

    Not being able to open a data connection while the firewall is active is typical of no connection tracking for FTP because the firewall has to parse the command stream to know the port to open dynamically for the data connection. Make sure you have loaded the iptables module nf_conntrack_ftp.

    Hi thanks for the quick reply, The remote ftp server is Windows NT in active mode only.
    Ive tried different configs with the suse firewall (in Yast) but i have no clue what the right settings should be,
    Passive mode isnt supported on the ftp server

    Ive narrowed this down the the suse firewall but i dont know the correct settings

    are iptables custom rules for the firewall? if so can this be done in yast instead?
    Thanks

    I don't use SuSEfirewall2, at least not on machines that offer FTP, so I don't know. I suspect that using the YaST config tool for FTP service might handle this. You should look into that.
