Got the same problem but the log dosent tell me anything.Tried to recompile from scratch a version of frox no luck still not working.I think thats a bug from frox.I will try to run frox from other linux distro to see if its doing the same thing.

well, we try to eliminate frox and to use squid instead for ftp proxying
so far we have some troubles with some ftp authentication possibilities

I got it working today ,first you must set from system access on the web interface
to let the traffic pass to the system and then the port 2121 opens and you are able to access frox.

The second problem is that the virus scan dosent work at all.All files are virus infected :).Thats stupid because I tried to scan with "/usr/bin/clamdscan" the file downloaded without the virus scan and the file is clean.The ftp link I tested is from where virus infected files cannot be :).

Whit out the virus scan option in the config file it works perfectly.

Only Firefox and Opera dosent like the ftp proxy.You will get timmed out when you try to download something from the ftp. Tried all configs possible whiteout
luck.In IE 7 it works whiteout problems.

I recompiled frox and activated the cache option and it works ok.

Hi CIURI what source did you use to compile from ? a source rpm if so which one, or the raw source ?
Thanks for your input ..

the input firewall drops the connection to the frox.

Please change this line


in the file /etc/firewall/inputfw/frox.conf.tmpl

and restart the frox with the command "restartfrox"
