Hi Guys,

I have a problem here with my setup.

It is a simple one Internet <--> ADSL router <--> ASA <--> LAN

I have two lan interfaces both connected to my ASA.

The problem is i have a FTP server residing inside my LAN. The users on the internet are not able to FTP to my server. The error they get is FTP unknow n error.

I am posting my configuration.

Thanks for any help.

Just to add to the above, the adsl router is in a bridged mode. Should that create a proble? The FTP server though works fine if i connect it directly to the internet.

Config looks fine (ACL, static and inspect are ok)

Could you access to FTP server from local segment (ftp access from PC 192.168.1.x to server

You can also turn on logging and check logs

logging enable

logging timestamp

logging buffer-size 64000

logging buffered errors

logging trap notifications

Yes access from inside is working fine. The server when connected directly to the web is also fine i.e. people are able to connect to the FTP.

I would check the logs.

But do you think the adsl router being in a bridged mode causes any problem.
