Cant connect to my webserver and ftp server from outside LAN


I have an FTP server (vsftp) and a web server (apache) running on my slack box. Both work perfectly inside the LAN. ie: http://10.10.19.152 and ftp://10.10.19.152

People outside the lan aren't able to connect to my servers. The connection simply times-out every time. It used to work perfectly a few months ago.

Can someone help me fix this?

I guess you are using a router then? You will need to forward port 21 (default) for the ftp server and port 80 (default) for Apache. For example, let's say I have 3 machines in my network:

megamanx (192.168.2.3)
zero (192.168.2.4)
stormeagle(192.168.2.5)

"megamanx" has the servers, so I go into my router and forward those ports (21 and 80) to megamanx (192.168.2.3). This is very simple to do, but every firewall works differently, so...

If you are sure that you've got those ports forwarded, contact your ISP, something have happened there I guess..

Regards!
