FTP Outside Access
Posted 02 May 2006 - 03:10 PM
Could someone please walk me through it.
I know, my problems with outside access are making me look like I don't know a thing about any of this, but, it's true...I'm a web programmer, not a server person...
Thank you in advance for your help.
Oh, I feel stupid, I almost forgot to mention that I have the UniTray and the Quick 'n Easy FTP Server plugins. I hope the UniTray isn't in anyway conflicting with it.

But for outside access; have you routed port 21 (FTP) thru to the server? That is, if you're using port 21 for that...

I'm sorry, but I am completly confused. I'm a web programmer, not much of a server person.

There's a different procedure for each and every router make and model out there, so I can't tell you what to click, not even if I knew who your ISP is, what their policies are and what equipment you use. These things you ned to find out first (well I don't care about the ISP's name, but their policies are very important if they block stuff in their network).
Usually you connect to the router via a web interface or Telnet, see the routers manual for details on how to let a service/port pass thru. It's usually done by defining port to forward and IP to forward it to. You get your pc's local IP number by going to a DOS prompt and running "ipconfig".

Please, tell me if it works.

Please edit that post again ASAP; if this is write access to FTP, someone could hack your system very very quickly by uploading a script (if this is in the webroot at all).
 I removed the addres. But it certainly works -

It all depends on if it will run with port forwarding on my router, and if it'll run after the web server actually starts and stays started.

Well, I fixed the server issue, and now that I'm back behind a router, I'm having issues.
My guess is that it is just me having screwed up on the port forwarding, so, I screenshot the Router Admin and the FTP Admin pages.
