I am trying to connect to a ftps server. here are my issues
1.  if i connect directly to the dsl modem i can connect and transfer files with no issue
2 if i connect to my linksys WRT54g router running firmware ver 8.00.8 the connection kicks off just fine.  but after about 10 min the connection hangs and times out.
3 in desperation i have turned off all of the firewall features on the linksys router
4 i have open ports 1 - 65,000 on the router and forwarded them to the ip address of my local machine.
5. my local machine firewall is turned off\
6 the ftp client i am using is coreftp le and the server is set to use a passive connection.

like I stated above the connection and transfer works perfectly unless i am connected to the linksys router in which case the connection seems to be working but after about 10 min it goes from uploading to xfering and then just fails after the retry limit is reached.
