I’ve search and searched and cannot find an answer to my problem.
I have two MBLs attached to a Sky Hub. I’ve given up any hope of getting WD2GO working with Java on Windows 8.1 (if you’ve managed this please tell me how) so I decided to attempt to use FTP to access both MBLs over the net. This is what I’ve done so far:
I’ve registered a Dynamic DNS with dyn.com
For MBL1 I’ve set up Port Forwarding in the Sky Hub from Port 21 to its static ip address.
I can access this device with ftp://dynmanicdnsaddresss:21
For MBL2 I’ve edited vsftpd.conf:
and run the command vsftpd restart
Set up Port Forwarding in the Sky Hub from Port 2121 to its static ip address.
I cannot connect to this device using ftp://dynamicdnsaddress:2121. The server shows the Authentication Required dialogue. Accepts the Username and Password as valid but after several minutes displays “425 Failed to establish connection”
I really do not know what to do next. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
