hello, wonder if anyone can help me out here...
I've got the linksys E4200 router linked to my connection
The router includes a USB port of attached a disk drive, and has the option of being used as an FTP server.
I'm trying to set this feature up, to be able to access it remotely, but am struggling.
The router includes a dyndns option, so I've signed up for that, and have it all working - I can log into my router from work using the dyndns web address on port 8080 - so I know that bit works.
On the router, I've enabled FTP, created a share folder for it, created a login & password and assigned that to the 'admin' group which has r & w access.
I've kept the port as 21
When I access the ftp site from within my network (using ftp://example.dyndns-home.com:21)
it works fine.
However, when I use, say, firezilla and give the same address, and the correct username & password, it doesn't connect - I get this...
Status: Resolving address of example.dyndns-home.com
Status: Connecting to 00.000.000.000:21...
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Error: Could not connect to server
Any ideas where I'm going wrong? it could, I guess, be the company firewall, but I'm sure I've access FTP sites before (anyone know how I can check?)
