I have installed a FTP server on HP Proliant DL380G6. I gave a static IP 192.168.79.4 and connected it to a DMZ. I configured NAT on the outside interface of the Firewall issuing the command
#ip nat inside source static 192.168.79.4 206.159.164.135
How do I configure access lists and public IP.
What else should I need to do to make it work

Hi,

You have to create access control policy for external user to access the virtual ip (nat ip) of the server and allow FTP service access on that policy.

Sometimes FTP setup can be tricky, as FTP can be active and passive. If you can connect but failed to list the folder that most likely you having problem with this active and passive. You may be need to add access policy from internal to external from local IP address of the server to make active FTP works.

make sure you set the directory to allow read/write for the user account you use to log into ftp server else the command mkdir will not work.
