Setting up guildFTPd behind a Dynalink RTA220 router

I want to set up GuildFTPd behind a Dynalink RTA220 router. I've been stuffing around for almost a week, being able to connect internally (LAN), but not externally. At this point I'm not interested in learning a thing, I just want to make it work. please post an exact list of step by step instructions including setup for the router and the guildFTPd program, noting any things that may affect the setup (such as intrusion detection, in router)
I've been using port 30000, with passive range (trying to anyway) 30001->30020. I always get Connection Failure when trying to connect externally to ftp site. FTP program is WS-FTP pro.  The makers of my router were unsure how to do what I need - go figure.
Unless you know exactly how to fix my problem, don't reply

thx

It's stopped when trying to list directories

Did you open the port for your passive range ?

And when I use passive mode, I'm getting data socket error :
From guildftp forum:
"if youre getting DATA SOCKET ERROR or CANT ESTABLISH DATA CONNECTION:

DSE is cause the client is in PASV mode where it should be PORT mode
CEDC is cause the client is in PORT mode where it should be PASV mode

If none of the methods works, then you have a misconfiguration somewhere between your PC with GFTPd and your Router.

Check that:

    * Your Router is forwarding ports to the correct LAN IP
    * Your GFTPd is set to the same ports as your Router
    * That if you have a Firewall, the same ports must be opened to the CORRECT LAN IP
    * GFTPd is set to use your Routers WAN (Internet) IP + Its the CORRECT one
    * You do NOT have any software installed that hijacks the ports after GFTPd started to use them
    * You do NOT have any software installed sharing the same ports/filtering the ports


Eventually try connect without your Router, (plug your RJ45 directly into your NIC)."


Gd luck :)

I appreciate all the info, but I need to know HOW to do these things, not just that I have to do them.

ok i just saw pdf file how to set up port forwarding with your router :)

local ip address is your ip: (get it from run--> cmd --> ipconfig)
netmask is 255.255.255.0
remote ip address is your dsl connection ip address
netmask is depends on your ip address.
port range : 3000 - end
in bound and out bound : allow
protocol type : tcp ( i think )

why it's so complicated to setting port forwarding in dynalink -.-
with netgear i only need my ip, the port and description :P

AshuraKnightCommented:
btw passive mode : ftp server decide which port for each client
another mode is port mode where client connect to any port available
