Hi again,

I think I didn't explain myself very well. I meant that packets were travelling between server and client directly, without passing by the haproxy bos, so the conversation goes like this:

client -> haproxy (21)
client <- haproxy (21) (and so on...)

but when I make a "ls" on the client side and it performs the PORT operation, tcpdump tells:

FTPserver (20) -> client (P)
FTPserver (20) <- client (P)

So It seems the rule is not taking effect... Any other idea? Could you show some parts of your configuration to see if I'm missing something?

Thanks a lot.
