FTP connection from AXIS207W netcam to Fujitsu Scaleo 2205 home server (WHS)

Hi,

I've a problem in getting the FTP running.

My network has a broadband router and 2 connected devices:

1.) Webcam AXIS 207W, with an ethernet connection to a switch (which is connected to a router). The cam has an embedded mini linux system. Pls. see screenshot of the parameter settings.

2.) A Fujitsu Scaleo 2205 Windows Home Server, which operates as central data storage system (NAS) and multimedia streaming device.

I followed the steps described at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/de-de/library/6ws081sa(VS.80).aspx to get the FTP services activated and tried to connect via FileZilla with parms as attached...

I frequently changed the parms to narrow down the problem, but no success.
I can ping the server and checked firewall is not interfearing.

Any hint?

1.) I actually need to store the webcam images internally, but later want to access the NAS via Internet (FTP).
2.) The settings as per screenshot are the settings of the WHS (server name is actually "SERVER", "AXIS" the folder name and "ftp" the user to access the NAS). What do you mean with "wrong"?
3.) What I want to do is described in the subject, I need to store the webcam images to the WHS/NAS - via FTP upload.

Thanks.
"AXIS Webcam" (1) and "WHS/NAS Fujitsu Scaleo 2205" (2) are connected to a switch (3).
3 is connected to the router (4) and 4 has its firewall to protect from incoming traffic (Internet).
No other firewall or protection within the LAN.
1 should now FTP images to 2.

since you want to FTP to  Fujitsu Scaleo 2205 Windows Home Server so you server should have a FTP server.

Based on the picture given it seems like you got ftp server on screenshot axis 207w

...from my understanding the AXIS is a FTP client and on WHS, under inetpub/ftproot there is a "FTP server"?!
One question is how to address the WHS share from the AXIS?
0
tankergoblinCommented:
ok first you should try you ftp server where it is working or not.
to try you can use client such as filezilla

tankergoblinCommented:
after you try let me know whether its working or not

...using the DOS box:

ftp
open
SERVER
User = ftp
Password = ...
Error cannot connect.

I guess we must start to validate the WHS/FTP configuration...

tankergoblinCommented:
ok go and download a filezilla client at filezilla-project.org.

you have to type in your ftp address, username and password.

but first have you PORT FORWARD your FTP port?
if yes try to use a valid address like 156.12.2.23.Try to use your server ipaddress as your FTP address.

and set AXIS to /

also i would to know why platform u use for your server?

Both, the cam and the WHS are within my own local area network (LAN) - as I described already!
So no need (for now) to check Internet-FTP.
The first thing is to configure the IIS ftproot function correctly, checking the user permissions and checking that FTP runs properly from another PC within the LAN to the WHS.
If this runs properly, we can further extend investigations regarding FTP over Internet.

you mean you already make the things work?


what do you mean chekc internet FTP?

port forward is forwarding your port so that you client can read your ftp server.
this is necessary if you user router.
dont care if you connect internal or external.

and port checker is for you to confirm that you port is open

...well, rather checking FTP function via Internet, I first like to check within LAN. This should work first.
So is there any method to narrow the errors I already mentioned?

tankergoblinCommented:
ehh
as i mention above. It is not check internet. it is checking whether you port is open or not. It doesnt matter you connect to internet or not.

First, you using router? your router enable firewall?

if yes then you need to port forward in order for your client pc even in local area network to see your server.

If you use localhost then no need. but if you use an ipaddress like 10.8.8.1 with port example 21. Then you need to open the port so client can read the server. Other way is you allow all port .

>>The first thing is to configure the IIS ftproot function correctly, checking the user permissions

-- user permission to connect to ftp server is port forwarding the port. you do that already?

>>and checking that FTP runs properly from another PC within the LAN to the WHS.
if you are in local area network then try to use filezilla client and type in your address username and password. to see it is connect or not. if not they see the log .


I DONT understand why you keep saying  "rather checking FTP function via Internet" what do you mean? please explain. What i actually ask you to do is, port forward the port and check it via internet to confirm it is open. As long as you using router, no matter you in LAN or WAN  or MAN. you need to port forward the port.

Which part of my english you dont understand. please let me know ya
thanks
