Not sure where you are or if it is applicable since you tried shields
up... but I ran into a problem setting up an FTP server on a friends
cable modem a few years back. Couldn't figure it out. Turned out his
cable provider was blocking FTP.... They also blocked SMTP, etc...
Wasted a whole evening trying to figure out why it wasn't working. Might
be worth verifying FTP is not disabled by the ISP.

Subject: [m0n0wall] FTP server behind monowall
I know this is an age old question: how to setup ftp server behind
I have searched the forum and read the monowall scratchpad. But I still
can't get my ftp server to work. I am hoping someone could enlighten me.
Here is my setup.
internet ----> monowall ----> switch ----> ftp server
monowall is 192.168.1.1
ftp server is 192.168.1.2. I am using FileZilla on windows XP as some
Here are my monowall config
Firewall NAT Inbound
lf proto Ext. port range NAT IP Int. port
WAN TCP 20 192.168.1.2
20 ftp server port 20
WAN TCP 21 192.168.1.2
21 ftp server port 21
WAN TCP 55000-61000 192.168.1.2 55000-61000
Firewall NAT outbound
Interface source Destination Target
WAN 192.168.1.0/24 *
192.168.1.2 ftp server
Proto Source Port Destination Port
TCP * * 192.168.1.2 21
FTP server 1
TCP * * 192.168.1.2
55000-61000 FTP server 2
I have setup filezilla with passive mode settings External server IP
address for passive mode transfer -> use the following IP -> 192.168.1.2
I have also checked the tick box
* Don't use external IP for local connections
* use custom port range: 55000 - 61000
When I use ftp client to connect to 192.168.1.2 it work. When I use ftp
client from external lan to connect to my dynamic IP, it can't find the
ftp server. by the way, I am using monowall's dyndns server. Pinging my
hostname (eg. hostname.homeunix.net) from the net work.
I have use Shield-up to check and it report that port 21 is open.
I have tried many configuration and still can't get anything to work.
