I want to enable the FTP Server on my NAS box to do a couple of remote backups. I've done this before, the only real difference being that time my setup had a fixed IP. Right now I'm on a dynamic IP on BT Internet Broadband.
I know the IP address and have a DynDNS account to handle any time it changes and have port forwarding setup on my router to send FTP traffic to the NAS box.
Issue is that when I try to connect to the dynamic IP in an FTP client it can't find the server and times out.
I tried using the Windows command line and it appeared to connect with: ftp myalias.dyndns.net but I don't know what else to do with it as I don't know any of the commands or what to test for.
Can anyone start pointing me in the right direction?
