SDN 101: An Introduction to Software Defined Networking
Discover the advantages of SDN.
SDN has quickly become one of the hottest trends in IT. But not all SDN solutions offer real software-defined functionality. As more enterprises consider SDN, they want to know, “What is SDN? And what are the real benefits?” If you're ready to explore the advantages of SDN, and want to know how it should be implemented within your enterprise, start by reading our introductory white paper.

I recently got an SDSL connection from G4 Communications for my servers here at home. Everything seems to be working great except for FTP.
I am running VSFTPD on a FC3 based box. I can connect to it just fine from anywhere in the local network. When somebody on the outside tries to connect, it doesn't work. They seem to be able to authenticate just fine, but when the directory listing comes it just times out.
I logged into one of the UNIX servers over at work and logged into my server here at home, it timed out as expected - I then turned off passive mode and the directory listing came without any problem.
I am using 1:1 NAT on my gatway (m0n0wall) - 126.96.36.199, port 20 and 21 TCP (Among the other usuals) are being forwared to 10.0.1.1
In the config for VSFTPD I tried "pasv_enable=NO" - That just gave me permission denied, though, when I tried to list the directory.
I should also note that it is possible to connect to the FTP server when I (Or anybody else) is connected to the m0n0wall's PPTP VPN service
At this point I am sort of stuck - Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated
I belive you need the ftp connection tracking module
CONFIG_IP_NF_FTP - This module is required if you want to do connection tracking on FTP connections. Since FTP connections are quite hard to do connection tracking on in normal cases, conntrack needs a so called helper; this option compiles the helper. If you do not add this module you won't be able to FTP through a firewall or gateway properly
is actually a kernel module, is part of iptables which is the m0n0wall's underlying program.
Yeah just give it a run on the command line and see if it makes a diff. if it doesn't find it, you may need to download it.
Still haven't got it to work. Here's the error I get in a command line on my Mac. (OS X 10.4 Tiger)
Connected to equis.seanspc.net.
220 Equis.seanspc.net - FTP Service. Please play nice

Here's the configuration on my server (Part of it, at least):
