Hi,
I have problems to setup vsftp server (at server1) in lan network to allow upload snapshot pictures from cctv cam (same lan network) to server1 as user1. I can't force vsftp use ftp since cctv does not support sftp.

Additinaly nice to have is using sftp from WAN to download files.

Here is not working my vsftpd.conf:
Code:
write_enable=YES
dirmessage_enable=YES
nopriv_user=ftpsecure
local_enable=YES
local_umask=022
#chroot_local_user=YES
anonymous_enable=YES
anon_world_readable_only=YES
anon_upload_enable=YES
anon_umask=022
anon_mkdir_write_enable=YES
anon_other_write_enable=YES
anon_root=/var/ftp
syslog_enable=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES
#pasv_enable=NO
pam_service_name=vsftpd
listen=YES
ssl_enable=NO
pasv_min_port=30000
pasv_max_port=30100

If I'm using sftp protocol I'm able to ftp from LAN and WAN
Any suggestion??

just to clarify things, Sftp is SSH file sharing. vsftpd is very secure ftp daemon. ftp runs 2 ports, not 1, you must forward both if behind a router.

if you are just sharing snapshots id go with http sharing over ftp.

So, do I need forward port 21 and 22 on my router?
I don't get it "http sharing over ftp" what you really mean? My cctv cam can upload pictures to ftp or send by email, so I choose ftp.

20 TCP UDP FTP data transfer Official
21 TCP FTP control (command) Official
22 TCP UDP Secure Shell (SSH) — used for secure logins, file transfers (scp, sftp) and port forwarding

ok let me re phrase this since i have a better idea of what your original meaning was.

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Vsftpd#Anonymous_read.2Fwrite_access <--- is what you want for the camera to push images to your linux box via ftp.

http is what you want to use to share to external networks/internet.

the wiki configuration is very insecure, but it works for random pushing of files from anyone. (you might need a user on the computer, its been a while since i wrote it) i designed the config for corporate team share file serving, and you will probably want to start with working and modify it to make it more secure.
