FTP Passive mode ports

  • 1.  FTP Passive mode ports

    Posted 23 days ago
    I'm trying to run an FTP job between two agents. I've set them up as ftp client and ftp server and enabled passive mode on both. My problem is that the firewall only allows a certain range of ephemeral ports for FTP (40000 to 50000) but there doesn't seem to be a way to limit the passive port range in the agentparm.txt file. We don't want to have to allow the whole port range (1024-65534) and would actually like to tie it down to a much 10 port range if possible. Does anyone know if this is possible in the CA Workload Automation agent?

    Just in case anyone else is searching for  a solution for this. The answer is to add ftp.dataports=40000-40025 (or any range, you can also have multiple ports/ranges comma separated) to the agentparm.txt file on the Agent acting as FTP Server. Then restart the agent and all is good.
