I’m having some trouble connecting to my VPN configured NAS FTP server.
I have opened a specific port to redirect to my NAT’s internal IP address. That means on my own network the 192.168… address connects just fine to the FTP server, both with Filezilla and Firefox.
Using my actual ip adress ending on “:port” also works in Firefox and Filezilla. Here’s a partial log using Filezilla on my own network:
Status: Connecting to 87.73…:8021…
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message…
Response: 220 Welcome to WD My Cloud
Command: USER ()
Response: 331 Please specify the password.
Command: PASS *********
Response: 230 Login successful.
Response: 227 Entering Passive Mode
Response: 226 Directory send OK.
Status: Directory listing successful
But unfortunately using the aforementioned details to login only works on my own network. I’ve tested the details on a computer outside my home and ftptest.net where I get the following result:
Status: Resolving address of 87.73…
Status: Connecting to 87.73…
Error: Connection attempt timed out
My NAS is a Western Digital My Cloud and in the options I’ve enabled FTP.
My router port forwarding is setup as follows:
ID Service Port Internal Port IP Address Protocol Status
1 8021 21 192.168.0.102 ALL Enabled
But the issue remains my ftp won’t allow outside connections. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks in advance!
