Well i setup 2 ftp sites on my win2k server

first one uses default port 21
the second one uses port 8081

now over the internet i have no problem accessing ftp site at port#21
just simply i type : ftp://<domain_name/ and see my folders

if i want to access second ftp site i simply type:
ftp://<domain_name>:8081/ but it doesnt work says pagenotfound
i also tried
ftp://<wan_ip_address>:8081/ same thing

if i am on local network where the server is everything is ok
i type:
ftp://localhost/   and ftp://localhost:8081
or
ftp://<local_ip>/ and ftp://<local_ip>:8081
all work fine!

now i have a sonicwall firewall and i setup a service to allow TCP access to my server at port 8081. when i use port scan tool it says that port 8081 is open.
so i am really confused at whats is wrong here

thanks

if you can test the FTP server at the WAN side without (or behind) the firewall, it would be helpful for us to determine where is the problem. :)
