I gave up on Windows FTP, am now attempting to get FileZilla server working. Spent too many hours on this and would like some help with:
Error: Connection timed out
Error: Could not connect to server
Checked out Google - says it's trying on active but it's set to passive.
Using Windows Firewall - added Filezilla entry - settings: Allow the Connection,
All Programs, All Computers, Any Protocols (all ports), Scope - restricted to my remote IP (static), Advanced- Domain, Private, Public, No specific users.
FileZilla server log:
Closing all listening sockets
Creating listen socket on port 50000...
Listen socket port changed
FileZilla server settings:
Listen on 50000 to 50100 - rest defaults
No IP Bindings
No IP Filter
Passive - 50000 to 50100
Retrieve IP from http://ip.filezilla-project.org/ip.php
???? Why did they suggest this?
Block incoming & outgoing server to server transfers
All else is defaults
FileZilla Client settings:
Settings: Passive, Allow Fallback
Use the Servers external IP Address
Active: Don't use external IP address on local connections
Active: Use ports: 50000 - 50100
Connecting to probe.filezilla-project.or
Response: 220 FZ router and firewall tester ready
Response: 331 Give any password.
Response: 230 logged on.
Checking for correct external IP address
IP 99.999.99.999 (my IP hidden)
Response: 200 OK
Response: 200 Using port 50062, data token 1073258773
PORT 99,999,99,999,195,142 - 9's are my external IP (hidden) why is it using these ports? they change every time.
Thanks for any help -
