Using the built-in FTP server and IPFW (firewall)
Authored by: cyberbrent on Aug 12, '03 03:47:38AM


So if I did the above coding to OSX Server 10.2.6 that actually has Netbarrier installed as well to help stop the Code Red and Nimda Attacks on the server - It emails me when ever they occur - simple stupid setup so I like it.

What would I set the ports open to on Netbarrier - I presume 20 & 21 - But what else?

I have not been able to get FTP to work very well and actually gave up as even when we did get it going FTP would run terribly slow - I believe your hint may solve my problems:

If you want please feel free to email me at

Using the built-in FTP server and IPFW (firewall)

In my search for FTP connectivity to my home (being a broadband cable connection from Telenet in Belgium - behind an Apple Airport Basestation) i found this solution
1. Allow remote log-in on your local machine at home,
2. Activate FTP access on your local machine
3. Map a port 'xx' to your port 22 on your local machine
4. Use a Secure FTP client on your Remote machine
like Fugu ,
in this software you specify 'xx' as port to be used for your remote connection
Quite Easy and Secure !
