Configuring and Using an FTP Proxy
Linux Journal tells us how to
configure and use an FTP proxy.
"One important technique is to run an FTP proxy on your
firewall. Whereas the standard Netfilter code in the Linux kernel only
inspects packets, an FTP proxy lets your firewall act as an intermediary
in all FTP transactions. This increases your protection against buffer overflows and many other kinds of FTP attacks. It also allows you to
restrict which FTP commands are executed by FTP clients."
