setting up router for ftp filezilla server

Message 1 of 12

I want to share some files with family using filezilla ftp. I have set up my one computer running xp pro as a server using filezilla.

What I am having problems with is getting a complete port forwarding circle back to the client software. I have port 21 forwarded

to the computer that is acting as a server. However under passive mode i cannot complete this return. How do I set up my actiontec router to do this?

I am using the routers external address and the client is coming into my computer but the port (I think) needs to change on the return route. Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

Is this correct?

 

Port Forwarding
This feature enables applications (Games, Webcams, IM & Others) by opening a tunnel between remote (Internet) computers and a specific device port inside your local area network(LAN).

 

Networked Computer / Device Network Address Public IP Address Remote Host IP Address Protocols WAN Connection Type Status Action localhost localhost     Verizon FiOS Service – TCP Any -> 4567 All Broadband Devices Active   Basement-2dc128a87 192.168.1.6
    Basement FTP - TCP 20-22 -> Any All Broadband Devices Active Add              

 

The TCP settings ?   Many thanks !

You need to open port 20 as well! More information about FTP at http://slacksite.com/other/ftp.html

No, opening all ports from 20 - 21 should have you covered.  Also, check your FTP server from inside your network jsut to make sure you kow it is working correctly! Make sure the type is TCP aswell.

Can you now run a server without violating your terms of service?

3.7.5 You may not use the Broadband Service to host any type of server personal or commercial in nature.

 

That's all I'm going to say about this matter.

Thanks for the reply. I know it is not the answer I wanted, but I just wanted to see if policies have changed. As long as you run a clean service connection and do not cause issues, I don't think VZ would repremand you. I think it is for people that want to run a server and have no clue. If everyone started running unsecure servers that could increase traffic, and become server bots, it could really screw things up and make the FIOS service stink. Nothing like a little DOS attack to glog the network.

Then you understand what I'm getting at...the minute you start getting all this traffic, whether it be IRC, HTTP, etc...you can start bottlenecking the network for other users at the Central office.

Funny thing is Verizon does provide instructions on how to do somethings. Like a Webcam, and that is a server of sorts. I guess restricting it leaves the option to pull the plug if someone causes issues. Good policy.
