VSFTPD passive mode is not working
 
I have Centos 5.7 64bit; I have installed vsftpd as standalone service and using it for two years now with no problem. Suddenly; only it works with active mode. The passive mode stops working and gives time out. Firewall is disabled and SELinux is set to permissive.

I ran tcpdump and I noticed that only first three packets reached the FTP for passive mode and no more packets on other ports

# lsmod | grep conntrack

ip_conntrack_ftp****** 41361* 1 ip_nat_ftp
ip_conntrack_netbios_ns*** 36033* 0
ip_conntrack********** 91621* 5 ip_nat_ftp,ip_nat,ip_conntrack_ftp,ip_conntrack_ne tbios_ns,xt_state
nfnetlink************* 40457* 2 ip_nat,ip_conntrack

Any suggestion?

I believe I've run into this problem/that bug as well.

As a workaround, I found that adding the following helped.

pasv_enable=YES
pasv_min_port=35000
pasv_max_port=36000
pasv_address=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

If you are NAT'ing, however, it will break passive connections from your private network.

Hope that helps,
Matt

Yes; it was an issue with Linux kernel*2.6.18-274.*.el5.centos.plus ; so I switched back to Linux kernel* 2.6.18-238.19.1.el5.centos.plus and it's working now.
