can't access ftp server outside my LAN, fc4, ipcop, and static IP


HI,
I am using vsftpd on Fedora FC4 and have left the settings in the vsftpd.conf file pretty much as-is. I can access the ftp via my lan but not via the internet. I have IPCOP and have set it to forward port 20 and 21 to my server but it still doesn't work. I get the message:

windows cannot access this folder. Make sure you typed the name correctly and that you have permission to access the folder.

details:
220 ftp server ready
530 invalid user

any thoughts?
Thanks
Daniel

well, I can't log in with a valid user and I have set it up to take Anonymous users- so I doubt that is the problem. Just because windows says something in a box doesn't mean that it is the problem- infact it RARELY is! LOL It is my FTP and I can get to it with no problems via my local LAN, it is just when I try to access it using the external IP address as oppsed to the internal one.
Thanks

that is not windows saying "invalid user" that is yout ftp server. check the ftp server logs to see what it said about that error.
