I just recently posted about setting up a server. My friend and I have been able to host a website and set up remote desktop access, but we can't get the FTP server to work. We want to be able to read and write. Inside the network this works, but when I try to access it outside the network I receive an "Alert! 425 Can't open data connection." I can click ok and view the contents with a web browser, but it won't allow me to write anything. When I use a ftp program like filezilla it just doesn't connect at all. It can't retrieve the directory list. I have forwarded port 21 on the router and in the firewall. I know it's not the firewall because I have turned it completely off to test. Are there other ports or am I just doing something wrong?
No announcement yet.
