FTP Windows 2000 Server

I have a Windows 2000 member server that i set FTP up on. I changed the default port on it for security reasons but cannot get it to work right. I changed the port on the router and pointed it to the Windows 2000 server and then changed the port in the Services File. There was 2 ports in there a FTP data on port 20 and another one on Port 21. I just changed the Port 21. Then i changed it in the registry as well MSFTPSVC. Anyways i can log into it just fine from outside the network but when i go to list the directory with the ls command or if i type dir it hangs up.. Below is where it hangs up on... Any suggestions

ftp> ls
500 Invalid PORT Command.
150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list.

try to change your FTP entry in %Windir%\system32\drivers\etc\services file.

I did that already. Thats what i mean above by changeing the port in the services file. Still does not work. I have been reading alot of other post and there is something about a passive mode? How do i change that or check to see if that is on? I can connect to it on the network at work here just fine. Its just when i connect from the outside. I still connect to it but i cannot list the directorys or do anything.

ftp> ls
500 Invalid PORT Command.
150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list.     <------ hangs up when i do this from outside of the network

have you checked to make sure no firewall is knocking down the connection?

I know with our 2000 servers we have some FTP services set up on non-standard ports and we did it the same way you would do a web site via the IIS Administration Window via MMC...
