ftpgw.tcl −−− an FTP gateway script to allow tunnelling


     ftpgw.tcl [−p <port−range>] [−v] [listen‐port [ftpd‐
     host [ftpd‐port]]]

This program is a simple FTP gateway that intercepts PORT
commands and passive‐mode responses so that it can set up
handlers for the data streams associated with them. It then
rewites these control lines so that traffic to an FTP server
apparently comes from the gateway process.  Similarly a
client sees a remote port that it can access for passive
mode transfers. This allows the FTP control (but not data)
channel to be tunnelled and encrypted.

     By default the program listens on port 2121 and will
redirect traffic to a local FTP server on port 21. These
values can be overridden on the command line. The −v option
turns on verbose logging to stderr.

     If the −p option is specified then the argument is a
range of port numbers in the form xxxyyy. All passive‐mode
data ports will be in the range xxx to yyy and the response
lines will be re‐written to redirect a client to the
corresponding port on 127.0.0.1 (localhost).  This means
that passive‐mode data connections can be tunnelled in
addition to the control connection.

     For examples of how to use this program see the
documentation for Zebedee.
