After having a hell of a time to get the ability working, FTP from a PC via pfSense to the WAN, I now have a working solution:

  • In SQUID: add thefollowing in your Custom Options: (NOTE: the ;;; is for new-lines)

;;;acl ftp proto FTP;http_access allow ftp;acl CONNECT method CONNECT;acl ftp_port port 21;;http_access allow ftp_port CONNECT;;;

  • You also have to add in the Access Control/acl sslports the following: (NOTE: this enables the ports for FTP)

21 50000-50050

  • The last thing you need to do is disable your System Tunables “debug.pfftpproxy” by changing the “(default) 0″ value to “1″

That is it…

I use FileZilla’s free FTP client and it works like a charm.  Just remember to add your PROXY into the CLIENT.
