Hi.. I have set up an FTP server in a Windows server 2k3 machine in my company. this server is behind a cisco pix firewall and we use adsl router for the internet connection. everything had been set up properly from the FTP site itself to the configuration of the pix firewall to redirect any FTP request to that win server 2k3 machine.
the FTP works ok internally in our LAN (we just type ftp://win2k3server-hostname
). but for public access, it works ok only if we use dial-up as the internet connection, or if we use broadband from home (we use router, but the FTP connection can still be done). The problem comes when we try to access the FTP site from another LAN. My colleague tried to access it during one of his stays at some hotel. He used the hotel's broadband connection but can't get in the FTP site. we also tried to use wireless internet connection in one of the airports, but can't get into the FTP site as well.
what is the cause of this and how to rectify it?
thanks in advance!!
