Secure FTP :: FTPS On CPanel Server

Jul 7, 2008

I`m going to use FTPS for one of my accounts on a cPanel Server.

Should I assign a dedicated IP to that account, then install SSL on FTP.DOMAIN.COM?

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: FTPS Not Working?

Aug 20, 2014

We just upgraded from Plesk 10.4.4 to 11.5.30 and can't seem to get FTPS to work.

I presume it should be running on port 990, but the server is not listening on that port (only 21 for FTP).

netstat -lptu | egrep 'ftp|990'
tcp 0 0 *:ftp *:* LISTEN 20354/xinetd

We've enabled FTPS on the Server > Security Policy page.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: FTPs With TLS / SSL - AUTH Not Understood

Mar 22, 2015

I just migrated from a CentOS 5 server with Plesk 11.5 to a new server with CentOS 6.6 Plesk 12.

All customers, resellers, domains, subscriptions and even FTP users have been migrated fine (great tool btw).

There's only one thing what I cannot get to work on the new server: FTPs (TLS/SSL), this always results in "AUTH not understood".

The security and FTP settings are exactly the same as the old server (where FTPs worked fine), so I guess something is missing on the server.

What can I do to have a proper working FTPs with TLS/SSL?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Backup To Personal FTP Repository Using FTPS

Sep 18, 2014

The Problem:
I'm trying to set up an automatic backup to an ftp server using ftps (as configured in the personal ftp repository).
Copying the files fails however.

The things I checked:
The Plesk management website can't show the target folder's contents.
The only error I get is Error-Code "1".
The ftp server (a synology NAS) logs the ftp access: Credentials are correct, session is terminated after transferring 0 Bytes.
Each failed backup leaves a 0-Byte .tar file on the Backup folder.
If I disable ftps and go with plain ftp, everything works just fine.

Our previous generation Plesks (v11 and lower) can utilize ftps for backup (to the same ftp server) without a hitch.

Additional considerations:
Since the WebServer is on a hosted machine and file transfer has to be done across the internet, unsecured transport is not an option.

I have virtually zero Linux experience

[System Information]
Plesk Version: 12.0.8 Update #18
Operating System: Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Configuration Of FTPS With TLS And FTP Backup Repository

Mar 8, 2015

Plesk Panel 12 uses a proftpd FTP server, with the TLS module pre-installed and configured.

Many questions and/or problems arise when trying to connect to the FTP server over a FTPS connection. In (almost) all cases, the disability to connect with FTPS is due to

a) the lack of configuration of passive ports, AND
b) firewall settings, enabling connections through before mentioned passive ports.

The passive port range can be configured by

adding a line to /etc/proftpd.conf, stating: "PassivePorts <start> <end>", OR
adding a separate file with name <filename>.conf to /etc/proftpd.d/, with the contents of <filename>.conf stating: "PassivePorts <start> <end>"

And note that

- <start> is the first port of the port range, in theory any value above 1050 can suffice,
- <end> is the last port of the port range, any value below 65000 (!) can suffice,
- the extension .conf is required when using a separate config file,
- the directory location /etc/proftpd.d/ is required when using a separate config file,
- one should always limit the port range, i.e. it is not desirable to open up a lot of ports,
- it is desirable to have the <start> value above 20000, in order to prevent conflicts with other programs, using a specific port (for instance, port 8443 is also being used),
- it is not necessary to restart proftpd after configuring the passive ports. ​

The firewall settings have to be changed to allow connections through the passive ports that have been opened for FTPS connections and note that

- only open up the port range (not more) in the firewall settings,
- it is only necessary to open up ports in the firewall settings of the FTP server,
- it is not required to open up ports in the firewall settings of the sending server.

Many issues have been arising when setting up the FTP Backup Repository.

In general, the passive mode checkbox has to be selected, when encountering issues.

The explicit use of the passive mode allows for proper configuration of the FTP Backup Repository and note that it does not matter whether FTPS or normal FTP will be used.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: FTPS Not Working After Upgrade - Could Not Establish Connection

May 5, 2015

For some reason FTPS is no longer working as it used to before plesk upgraded. At this point, I am not sure which Plesk upgrade caused this since I do not FTPS or ftp in general often. its enabled as it was before, even disabled and re-enabled it again. Still gives a "could not establish connection". Restarted the service via command Line with "service xinetd restart". still isnt working...

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Backup Via FTPS Fails With Curl Error / Login Denied

Sep 6, 2014

I experienced an issue using an external backup repository on Plesk 12.0.18 machines using ftps. The ftp server uses ftps (explicit) connections.Plesk 11.5 works fine (and ordinary ftp client like Filezilla as well), Plesk 12 throws the following error when trying to add the server via the web interface:

Curl error: Login denied
Unencrypted connections will work. Plesk 11.5 machines (with the same settings) will work.

I've analyzed the problem and got so far: The backup manager tries to connect using "regular" transfer method + ssl, not ftp-ssl explicit.Is there a chance to force Plesk using explicit ftpes connections? Or is there another work around?Some additional infos about the (ftp) server: The ftp server is running ProFTP 1.3.4d, uses port 2000 for the control port and has a port range (2001 - 2100) for the passive connections.I tried to add the server using the address field of the gui IP:2000 and checkboxed "passive mode" and "ftps".

Is Your Server Really Secure

Mar 14, 2008

so while we all obsess over hardening our servers against sophisticated hacking attempts, how many of us consider the security of our own host's control panel?

Just today i'd forgotten my login for my host's helpdesk. I couldn't find their password recovery form, so i opened their public support chat and asked support for a link to their password recovery form. Apparently they didn't have a password recovery form. Here is the chat transcript:

Support: Hello
Tom: Hi, where is your password recovery form for the helpdesk?
Support: How may i help you?
Tom: Did you see my message?
Support: Yes
Support: Let me know your email address
Support: Okay Let me check
Support: Your new password is [REMOVED]

So, the only think really stopping someone from logging into my helpdesk and posting a server cancellation ticket is a little bit of research to find my email address and a traceroute to find my host.

Nov 11, 2007

I see that one of the most important things nowadays is the security of our servers.

I would like to know from people here that are running big and small servers what they have done to secure their servers. What tips, what softwares they have used, which applications using and are more secure than others.. generally everything that could make good in the protection and security of our servers.

Even if you asked helped from a company doing that work, what changes they have done to your servers? which options they changed?

I am making this thread so as to collect all info we know in one place.. One knows about that tip.. the other one knows another tip.. having all of them somewhere could make a tremendous difference..

Moderators please dont move that thread in any software discussion or other forum as this is one of the most active ones and also has instant relation with the dedicated servers we buy.

No Need To Secure Server

Dec 6, 2007

I have a friend that works in the IT. He is about to start his own business, something in the line of network connection or something like that. I was telling him that I'm planning on getting my own dedicated server but that I have no idea how to secure the server. He told me that most linux desitributions come with their own build in firewall and that I don't need to worry about security. He told me to just ask my dedicated server provider to make sure the firewall is enabled and that's it. When he told me that I thought to myself, either this guy has no idea what he's talking about, or those guys at Webhostingtalk have no idea what they are talking about!

Reliable, Secure, Non-oversold, Non-cPanel Host

Jan 3, 2009

I've used many webhosts over the years and have run into various issues from which I've compiled my key wants:

Reliability - availability of mail & web are both just as important - I've had a few hosts who have great HTTP uptime, but mail can go down for hours and is not covered by any SLA. Prefer clustered solutions using a NAS, or at the least RAID-1 (or 10). I recognise downtime is inevitable, I care more about the impact of single component failure and recovery time.

Control Panel/Security - I'd prefer the host to have a custom control panel (i.e. not cPanel/WHM, Plesk/Parallels, DirectAdmin, H-Sphere etc). I really like DreamHost's panel, in particular their model of arbitrary combinations of shell users and domains underneath them. I like to use this to separate installs of untrusted software (such as MovableType, Wordpress, Gallery, Joomla) into their own user accounts so that if one gets compromised it doesn't hose everything. Need multiple domain hosting.

Disk - 2GB sufficient, 3-4GB preferable.
Bandwidth - 10GB or more (I don't really use more than 2GB but prefer not to worry about overage)
Price - I'm happy to pay US$20-30 for a premium service.
Support - I'm technically savvy and only need for support to be responsive to technical questions & issues (i.e. reporting downtime).

To provide some background - I'm currently a customer of both DreamHost and Media Temple (gs). DH sucks because their uptime is completely unpredictable, I have kept it only because their user/domain model is convenient for toying with untrusted software. (mt) was to be the ideal host but reliability of their (gs) service is crap despite all the claims about superior architecture. Additionally they don't allow separation of users/domains and I don't want to host multiple 3rd party apps in the one account. To their credit (mt)'s support is extremely responsive and the company as a whole are very transparent about outages but they simply have too many technology issues.

How To Secure A FreeBSD Server For Shell?

Mar 13, 2007

For hosting irc and shells i heard that the best choice for OS is the FreeBSD..

I would like to know if there are any toturials or if someone can write one.. (or give some tips) of how can i secure a machine running FreeBSD and used for irc + shells!

Also what about putting users at jail? (not allowing them see other dirs except theirs) how can i do that?

Also what about dont allow users use some commands like dmesg, ping, traceroute, and also how can i make them when they do ps -aux to only see their processes (to not be able see the other processes from other users..)
