I've had Fastreams FTP server running for years on a server behind a firewall.  I now need to setup a secure FTP host as well.  The port 990 is open.  I created a new ftp to listen to port 990 in the program.  I am able to connect to the new FTP server and authenticate with FileZilla from a remote location.  The problem begins when I try to get a directory listing.  In the FTPS I see:

Response:      227 Entering Passive Mode (10,192,1,23,39,16). --10.192.1.23 being the internal IP address of the server.
Status:      Server sent passive reply with unroutable address. Using server address instead.
Command:      LIST
Response:      150 Opening data connection for folder list.
Error:      Connection timed out
Error:      Failed to retrieve directory listing


When I log into the working FTP I see something like this:

Response:      227 Entering Passive Mode (xx,xx,xx,xx,12,104).-- Where xx.xx.xx.xx is the external IP address
Command:      LIST
Response:      150 Opening data connection for folder list.
Response:      226 File sent ok
Status:      Directory listing successful

Any suggestions?  I am aware the Fastream only supports explicit and I have that selected in FileZilla.

On the firewall log it shows:  the port 990 is connecting fine but then it fails trying to go to port 10000

any ideas?

It seems like the failure is in the way my network is set up?  Maybe the NAT?

If the client uses active mode instead of passive is the problem eliminated; if yes, then we need to set up NAT differently on WG.

Thank you.

I eventually worked it out myself.  The solution required all of the following - Manual Passive Mode, turned on.  WAN IP selected and entered.  Passive port range set and we had to open the same ports on the WG.  It's a little clunky but it works.
