FTP Server Connection Problems (Ports)
Posted on 2003-11-12
Here's the problem:
I'm trying to set up an FTP server at home. I have installed the software (BulletProof and Cerberus--I'll explain) but I cannot get a directory listing no matter what I do. (Error 425) I can officially "log on" to the server but that's all.
Here's the setup:
Current Software: BulletProof--using port 30 to listen. (ISP has blocked 21) Tried using Passive (using ports listed below) and Active modes.
Linksys Router has port 30 and 20 forwarded to my machine. I've also (in desperation) opened ports 60000-65535--for passive connections.
I'm also using Zone Alarm which I've opened the same ports for--usually I just turn it off when I'm testing so it's not an issue--I still can't connect!
I've also opened a bunch of the same ports at my remote location (work) and we're using the same Linksys Router:
Opened ports 20, 60000-65535
Previously I was using Cerberus FTP server with the same setup, but still the same problems.
I've tried using WS-FTP as well as Internet Explorer as my clients, but no luck.
Do I need to open more ports? I've also tried removing the router from the setup, but no change.
This is driving me up a %$^&*! wall and I just can't figure it out! Help!
