[hylafax-users] One more... this one may be unsolveable...

Ok, one final niggle..... well, maybe more than a niggle.

I have my HylaFax server running on FreeBSD, and its ports are protected with ipfw. Only a limited number of ports are open - 4559 is for HylaFax.

I also have my FTP server open (regular FTP) and it works in "passive" mode.

But - Hylafax does not, even if I try to turn it on in WHFC.

It refuses to connect and times out - what I'm getting in the firewall debug log looks like this:

Oct 21 00:07:48 FS kernel: ipfw: 14000 Deny TCP in via fxp0
Oct 21 00:07:57 FS last message repeated 2 times

Where "" is my machine's (the server) address.

With passive turned OFF it does all sorts of "wrong" things (the other end is behind a NAT gateway when "roaming", so that definitely wouldn't work!)

But with PASV on isn't this problem supposed to be avoided?

It appears that Hylafax basically needs all ports open (!) inbound in order to work..... the port number in the above appears to be randomly chosen.
