Thats what I figured, however, the ftp daemon vsftpd is running fine along with ssh and telnet. The ports are open according to nmap and I can ssh and telnet to my comp...still having problems with ftp...however, I was wondering exactly what process occurs in configuring this if I didn't manually do it...is the daemon communicating with the router to open the ports?....I was mainly wondering the details of it rather than which port corresponds to which service...sorry if my question was a little confusing. Thanks.
