Hi, my goal is to be able to access my My Book World Edition White Light remotely via FTP on a port other than the default 21. Remote access is tested and works fine on port 21 (tested on my android phone on 3G) with my dynamic dns–namaurer.serveftp.com:21, but times out after accepting the user name and password of the My Book World when trying to connect on port 8000, the port I chose in the My Book UI as my alternative to 21. I forwarded port 8000 to my My Book World private IP in my router (Netgear WNR2000v2) and thought I made the necessary exceptions for port 8000 in my Kaspersky firewall (maybe not).
Can anyone help me out?
Here is what FTPtest says when I try to connect to FTP through port 8000:
Warning: Selected port (8000) is not the default port (21) of the selected protocol.
