IP requires whitelisting

#1 Post by audiopro » 2020-11-23 15:39

I have a dynamic IP address and whenever it changes, it needs to be whitelisted before I can transfer files.
I understand that but wonder why, when an IP is effectively blocked, can the server still be accessed.

According to the log, the connection is established and it only fails on the final dir retrieval.

Is this expected behaviour or is there something wrong here?

FTP uses multiple connections: A control connection to issue commands and receive replies, and individual data connections for each individual transfer.

Looks like there is no IP filtering on the control connection port.
