Why do new accounts suddenly require Passive Mode enabled?

    Ever since I upgraded WHM to WHM 10.6.0 cPanel 10.6.0-R158 about a month ago all new accounts that are created on the server have to have "Passive Mode" enabled in order to be able to connect via FTP. If it isn't enabled, it takes a minute or two just to have 4 files/folders appear when first logging in with FTP.

    I checked the settings in /etc/proftpd/USER and compared it with some older user files and they appear to be the same.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Hello,

    Did you enable iptables?. if yes try to disable it and then try. if it solve the problem, you should check the iptables rules.

    Can you please tell me how to do that? I'm using FreeBSD and haven't done anything with iptables before.

    Sorry,
    I thought you are running RH. Did you reinstall ftp on that server? Also you can switch to pure-ftpd

    No, I haven't reinstalled ftp. The last I checked Pure-FTP wasn't available for FreeBSD?
