FTP access

Hi, I’m trying to access FTP through Cloudflare. From my old webhosting I got forwarded to access it via Cloudflare, as they proxy the website now.

After some reading I found the following fix: “You need to use your server:s. IP, or unproxy (:grey:) the according record (f.e. ftp.domain.com )”

So I’ve added a rule to the DNS adding ftp.tj-da.com and put the setting DNS only. However I’m still not able to connect through Filezilla. I’m getting a “could not connect to server” error.

Does anyone know what I’m missing here?

Thank you!

Afraid that is not possible. Cloudflare does not proxy FTP, respectively you’d need an Enterprise plan for that.

That is accurate.

That record is still proxied.

nslookup ftp.tj-da.com michael.ns.cloudflare.com
Server:  michael.ns.cloudflare.com
Address:  108.162.195.12

Name:    ftp.tj-da.com
Addresses:  2606:4700:3034::6815:40c5
          2606:4700:3033::ac43:9b87
          104.21.64.197
          172.67.155.135

Make sure you really toggled the icon and saved the record too.

Thank you for your reply.

Hmm. Maybe I’m missing something stupid here :slight_smile: Are you able to see it from the image above?

Which nameservers are mentioned below your DNS records?

The one you mentioned:

michael.ns.cloudflare.com
And
vita.ns.cloudflare.com

That should be the correct ones.

For starters, I’d removed the two ftp records, wait five minutes, and re-add them as unproxied.

Alright, thanks a lot. And the IP Addresses there are the correct ones?

Just to completely understand, that IP Address is the IP Address where my server is located? Or how should I see that?

Thank you for all the help! It’s greatly appreciated.

Hang on, you also have a proxied AAAA record. You’ll need to unproxy that too.

Now the record(s) are unproxied. Whether the addresses are all correct is something you need to clarify with your host.

I proxied the FTP AAAA record as well. And tried to change the IP addresses from the info you shared above:

nslookup ftp.tj-da.com michael.ns.cloudflare.com
Server: michael.ns.cloudflare.com
Address: 108.162.195.12

Name: ftp.tj-da.com
Addresses: 2606:4700:3034::6815:40c5
2606:4700:3033::ac43:9b87
104.21.64.197
172.67.155.135

Yet all the combinations I try still don’t work.

Hmmm

I said unproxy.

Unproxied I mean. My bad.

Yeah, now the records are not proxied.

I’m in!! Thanks a lot for the help Sandro. You’re the best :smiley:

Pleasure :blush:
