Ftp problems


Now that I have updated to CF I cannot use ftp:

I have updated the ftp CNAME to be DNS Only.

Is there something else I need to do to remove FTP from the CF proxy?

If the ftp record is unproxied you will connect directly to your server and Cloudflare won’t be involved.

Make sure it really is unproxied and that you do not have any propagation issues and actually resolve it to the right address. You might have to wait a bit.

I’m not sure I understand everything you’ve said but I removed the proxy days ago and I still can’t directly connect.

How to be sure it really is unproxied?

Can you not just use the IP or original url you are entering to be proxied?
eg: originalurl.com is being CNAME-ed to newurl.com
can you not use originalurl.com to ftp in?

The IP works fine but not the original url. For some apps I really need to use the url.

I don’t understand the difference between the original url and the cnamed url.

Did you verify the two things I mentioned?

Also, what’s the domain? You should have started with that.

Hi Sandro,

Sorry, I’m pretty new to this.

The domain is gettysburgconnection.org

You said:

Make sure it really is unproxied. All I know is the orange cloud icon has turned to gray and says DNS only

Make sure you don’t have any propagation issues. I don’t know how to check that.

Actually resolve it to the right address. Also not sure what that means.

You might have to wait a bit. I unproxied several days ago.

The ftp record is not proxied and points to a 162 address. If it still does not work you’d need to contact your host, assuming you checked for propagation issues.

Though FTP responds

ftp ftp.gettysburgconnection.org
Connected to ftp.gettysburgconnection.org.
220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [privsep] [TLS] ----------
220-You are user number 2 of 150 allowed.

Are you saying that the issue is not with CF – that CF is properly allowing ftp://gettysburgconnection.org to direct to the 162 IP address?

What might interfere with proper propogation of this DNS?

thank you.

The address you mentioned certainly won’t work as that host is proxied.

You need to use ftp.gettysburgconnection.org.

Well that is odd because I can get that too from my command line but Filezilla and curl cannot find the ftp.

You might want to reboot your computer or flush your DNS cache. It’s not a Cloudflare issue at this point.
