My clients want to access an FTP server, via ACE, and I am having some issues. They can login and issue only one command... the second command will not be accepted an after a few seconds the prompt shows the message "connection closed by remote host".
I have sniffed traffic and I see that the connection between the client and the ACE has a strange behaviour because ACE open connection to data using an source port of 1039 (it should be 20, since we are usind an active mode client); between the ACE and the real server runs in active mode (I see normal ftp-data packets).
Other strange thing is that I have FWSM and they let traffic pass from ACE to client (they should expect traffic comming from port 20 and not 1039)
I am doing source NAT and ACE is doing all the necessary changes on source IP adresses.
Anyone has seen similar behaviour?
Any help would be appreciated.
In attach I send my config and traffic sniffing.
Thanks in advance.
P.S. - client is 10.1.44.98; VIP is 10.1.9.150; real server 10.1.36.124
