Why users that connect to ftp have same address?

Wed Feb 09, 2005 11:03 pm

Hi all!

i have a small problem that i would like to solve...

i have two interfaces...
one wireless prism interface with hotspot set up on
and other interface is ethernet NIC with network...

mikrotik has a address for that second ethernet interface...

and i have a ftp server installed on machine that is connected on this second ethernet NIC. This machine has (suprisingly :lol: ) address...

all hotspot users from network can connect to my ftp server on ....

BUT ftp server sees them all as clients connecting from !!!!
and this causes that when one user connects to ftp he 'kicks' out the previous one...
it seems that the second one somehow 'steals' the connection from the fitst one...
the first client remains connected but his upload/download stops......

is there a solution to this problem???
im sure its some configuration problem...
can i configure mikrotik so that FTP server on recognises all users with their real private address and that everything works fine...???

just to say that no masquerading is set up for this network...

any clues ??? pliiiiiz ??

check your src-nat rules. looks like you have a masquerade rule with the interface=all - set that to interface=public (or whatever is your public interface called)
