Vsftp works localy locks remotely


i have the default vsftpd server running (with chroot on). and everything works fine if i use my internal ip address, but if i use my external ip address it prompts for a login but just hangs (windows explorer) or gives me 425 bad ip connecting (firefox) I know i have port 21 fowarded correctly because all of my other ports work.

You have to be outside of your network for the external IP to work.

Go to school and use your external ip and it will work if you have it set up correctly.

No you don't. I have a Linksys router on my home cable connection. I have a server behind such firewall with an internal IP. I can easily connect being behind the Linksys router to my server by using the external IP.

My router and the routers of most of my friends don't do that.

I just typed in my external address and it failed. Yet it works anywhere else in the world.
