Spring has been
FTPing to her site. Her computer is currently
sitting behind a firewall, so to use
FTP she has to use passive
But … her web host has stuck the
FTP server behind a
firewall, where it doesn't work in passive mode.
So, she can't FTP to her web host.
I wasn't sure how to configure ProFTPD to do
FTP proxying, so I
downloaded jftpgw, an
FTP proxy. I
wanted it to work in conjunction with ProFTPD, so it took some work (namely,
getting ProFTPD to not bind to every IP address on the firewall, and setting up an extra IP
address for the proxy
FTP program to run on.
The contortions one must go through when you only have a single IP address.
