Smile Needing help with ftp

Hi all,

Wondering if someone can help.
I'm using Fedora 7 and I think my firewall is preventing me from using ftp properly. I'm trying to use Filezilla but it keeps refusing to connect, I think I've got all the settings in Filezilla correct, I can only think it's something firewall related.
I could see a unix tool called ipfwadm on a web page, does Fedora have something like this ?
Any help much appreciated.
Cheers

ipfwadm is Kenel 2.2 packet filtering. In 2.4 it is called ipchains and in 2.6 kernels it is iptables. There is a gui tool in the Menu that edits security level. This is where you can define the port for the ftp server to be opened.

Hi Brian,

Thanks for your prompt reply.
If you mean the Security Level Configuration option in the Admin section I've had a look at that and tried adjusting it but still not made any progress.

It modifies the file /etc/sysconfig/iptables. Post the contents of this file.

Looked up Filezilla and it is a client tool in many platforms with a Windows only server. Are you using it to conect to a Linux ftp server or a Windows machine running the Filezilla server portion?
