How to configure Passive FTP Mode on Google Cloud Instance?

Today, let us see the steps followed by our Support Techs to configure Passive FTP mode.

  1. Firstly, create a firewall rule. Pay particular attention to the following settings:

    • “Name”. Give the firewall rule a recognizable name so you can tell it apart from others.

    • “Priority”. Keep the default 1000 value.

    • “Direction of traffic” and “Action on match”. Select the Ingress radio button and the Allow checkbox.

    • “Targets”. Google Cloud allows you to add firewall rules to all or selected instances:

      • To apply the firewall rule to all instances in the network, select All instances in the network under “Targets”.

      • To apply the firewall rule to particular instances, assign targetTags to those instances.

      • Then, select Specified target tags under “Targets” and specify the tags under “Target tags”.

        A firewall rule is applied to an instance with at least one matching tag.

    • “Source filter”. Keep the default “IP ranges option” option.

    • “Source IP ranges”. Specify 0.0.0.0/0 to allow all ranges.

    • “Protocols and ports”. Keep the default “Specified protocols and ports” option and specify the following port range in the box below:

      tcp:49152-65535
      
  2. Next, click Create.

    The firewall rule is created. You can see it in the “Firewall rules” list.

The required configuration is completed. Now you can use the passive FTP mode on the Google Cloud instance.
