  • FTP NAT routeing

    Hello im trying to setup a FTP server on windows server 2003. I have everything setup, isolated the users useing active directory, but then when they go to login i get the error with file zilla
    Response: 530 User erikmeyer cannot log in, home directory inaccessible.
    Error: Critical error
    Error: Could not connect to server

    When i use windows to login, it keeps asking me to reenter my credentials and then finally displaying the access denied page. Im useing windows routeing and remote access. i port forward the ports to the correct ip. Also the home directory is on another server from the iis server.

    Its pretty obviious to me that the home directory is invalid on the FTP server.

    Does the user have this setup in the FileZilla settings on the server???

    Is the folder actually created on the FTP server???

      yes this is setup on file zilla
      yes the folder is created
      The iis server is "server-1", the file server server is "server-2" for the home directory i type in server-2 and it says its not valid. what should the address of the home folder be?

        I have mine setup on the same server as the FTP server but i would hazard a guess at \\server-2\%FOLDERNAME%

        Is the FTP server on the same segment of the network???

        Is it a domian member???

          it is part of the same domain
          under the file server the useres folders are c:/users, i tried \\server-2\useres but it still says it "cannot find the path specified"

                Is the folder shared on server2???

                If not share it and give everyone full control then in the fileZilla console set the home dir to \\server2\sharename.

                      You need to setup your firewall to allow a range of ports through for the FTP server.

                      You will then also ned to use the same range of ports on the FTP server so that it knows which ports to request.

                        on Nat routing the nic ip is 10.2.4.1, and the internal is 10.2.4.2. When i type in dns it routes to 10.2.4.1, but the ftp is running on 10.2.4.2, how would i change that?

                          What are you using as a firewall??

                          Is this working from external to internal.

                              You'll probably need to open up the relevant ports in the Windows firewall.

                              http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308127

                              To get it to work externally you'll need to get DNS updated with the FQDN of your FTP server. This will be an 'A' record btw.

                              i.e ftp.yourdomain.com should go to 100.1.1.1
