Could you offer a way to download files from avsim via HTTP?

Recommended Posts

On my side a firewall is running that disallows allpassive ftp connections for security reasons.So the only thing i can use for downloading filesis active ftp or http.I heared that you turned active ftp downloading off,but what about http?Could you make it possible to downloadthe files via http?

Active FTP will work if your firewall can handle it. We merely recommend Passive FTP because most firewalls don't do FTP conntracking properly!

We don't allow direct FTP access, so you would only be getting dropped signals anyway.

>We don't allow direct FTP access, so you would only be>getting dropped signals anyway.So that means that you only allow passive FTP acces.Active ftp access IS direct FTP access.In this case back to my first question.Could you make it possible to allow downloads via HTTP?
