Serv-U FTP server permissions problems
Posted on 2006-04-03
XP Pro SP2
Windows Firewall enabled (exception on port 2121)
Linksys Wireless router (port forwarding on port 2121)
This is the error I am getting while trying to access the FTP server from outside the router:
An error occurred opening that folder on the FTP server. Make sure you have permissions to access that folder.
Operation timed out
Now, when I try to hit the server from the outside (with a laptop) and simultaneously look at the server (on the desktop PC) to see what the logs say, it shows that I am logged in. But, it never actually shows any folder. The little flashlight just keeps searching and searching until it times out. I thought this might be a firewall issue, but since Serv-U shows me as being logged in I am a little confused.
Is it safe to say that this is no longer a network issue, and really is a permission/file path issue?
