Did you setup port forwarding on your router for port 20, 21 to go to the nas?

ummm, port 23 is reserved for telnet and 21/22 are reserved for FTP. Why did you change the port?

csaint00Commented:
Whenever you change a port always use 1024 and above as anything below that is reserved, give that a try.

csaint00Commented:
Well, if it's not a configuration error then just make sure you are ftp'd into the router using the port assigned to the NAS and it should work fine. What are you using to FTP?

http://www.dlink.com/products/support.asp?pid=509&sec=0#applications has some firmware updates for the NAS with a few updates to FTP.

Let's use this example to try to make sure we're on the same page,

Say the IP address of NAS is 172.25.25.130 and FTP port is 2121
A PC on the same network is 172.25.25.120
and your router's external IP is 67.38.142.12

Now, when you try to connect from the NAS from a PC on the same network you use the URL ftp://172.25.25.130:2121

From somewhere else on the internet you connect via ftp://67.38.142.12:2121

And the router is configured to forward port 2121 to 172.25.25.130 port 2121. Right?

OK, if your are connecting to the NAS from a local PC at 172.25.25.130:2121 does your username/pass work? If it doesn't then it seems to be a problem with configuration of the NAS, if it does then it seems to be a problem with the configuration of the router.
