Cannot connect to ProFTPD server from the internet

Experts,

I need help setting up my ProFTPD server (on Ubuntu) so as to connect from the internet.

I can connect to localhost, but cannot by the internet; it always times out.

Port 21 is open from the outside.  I've tried a number of router settings.

Is it router or config or both?

What am I missing?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Most likely a firewall/router config problem. If port 21 was really open, the connection wouldn't time out, it would give you a login prompt.
Probably the ProFTPD settings are correct (you can test it using another laptop or PC in the network).
