Subject [jira] Commented: (NET-313) FTP: EPRT fails + EPRT/EPSV issues
Date Tue, 06 Jul 2010 18:43:53 GMT


Don Goertzen commented on NET-313:

Encountered issue with EPRT incorrectly sending port as "0" instead of the actual port that
the ServerSocket is listening on.  This is always going to fail, and normally would fall back
to the PORT command. However, in my case the FTP server (FileZilla) is terminating the connection
when it encounters the invalid EPRT command rather than returning an error response, so the
PORT command never even gets a chance to run.  As mentioned in the description, server.getLocalPort()
should be used here, rather than getActivePort().

>    Affects Versions: 2.1
>         Environment: FTP server = vsftpd/Centos 5.4

> Network = IPv4

> as implemented in NET-288, the client can work now via IPv6 ... EPSV is not only useful
on IPv6 but also when NAT is enabled (see [RFC 2428|])
> what my patch does:
>  * (re)enable EPSV command on IPv4 too (i dont know why [] removed
it from the supplied patch in NET-288), also see my comments in patch
>  * sending EPRT only if we are over IPv6, cause there is no advantage over PORT on IPv4,
it could even have disadvantages (see comments in patch)
>  * EPRT was sending the result of getActivePort() to the server, but when there was no
activePortRange set, it did send 0 as default which leads to an error on server site:

"EPRT |1||0|"

"500 Illegal EPRT command."

>  * and even calling getActivePort() has no sense here, cause that port is used to be
random, but we should send same port  where the ServerSocket is listening on -> server.getLocalPort()
>  * getActivePort() checks if __activeMaxPort > __activeMinPort, but when i want to
set a range of only one single port (min==max) it would return 0 ... now it will check if
equal and return __activeMaxPort
