Hello,

The PASV mode on a ftp transaction execute itself on the port 20, not the port 21. SO you have a problem to open the port 20 from the FTp server to Filezilla. Are you on a local lan or behind a firewall, a router, ???

Regards,

Olivier

Hi I am not 100% sure if this is a server or configuration issue on the router; can you try using some other client; or may be from the command prompt; or might be using some browser.

While googling, I found the link below:

Hi Oliverbrewer,
I am behind a Vigor router.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I think the cause is your VIGOR router/NAT device not handling passive mode commands correctly.
Have you the opportunity to try with a different equipment ?

Regards,

Olivier

You could be right, it works ok on an old Netgear router but I need the Vigor (which is new) for remote access.

So you have three choices to resolve your problem:

1. Try to upgrade the firmware of your vigor
2. Open a ticket on th Vigor web site
3. change your Vigor with a different brand who supports your needs...

Olivier
