FTP Server Access concerns over VPN

L0 Member

I have Filezilla FTP server running on on private network.We are accessing it through VPN(Global Protct) with ftp client.When reading directories we get error cannot open data connection for file transfer. FTP access with local network is ok without. Any suggestions.

What is your firewall - I mean PA-series or Prisma Access?

And also which mode are you using for FTP data transfer : active mode or passive mode?


The reason I'm asking you is because Prisma Access does not support active mode.
