Admins are no longer able to initiate FTP from the Inside network to the same servers at the Outside network, once upgraded FWSM from 1.x to 4.0.x.

FTP inspection in the policy map is there, as you know it is the default config.

Appreciate your expertise, where could be the problem. Definite, the last thing I would do is taking your advise to roll back

  • Cisco Employee,

By no means should you downgrade to 1.x.

FWSM 4.0 had no major issues with FTP.

I would suggest collecting "debug ftp" logs and captures on the FWSM in and out interfaces to track it down further. Also syslogs could give some insight.

Thanks PK. I did found the problem and fixed it, yesterday but forgot to update my posting. The problem was in class-map configuration, there was match statement.

Appreciate your try to help.
