So your saying I will have to allow the client to recieve all those open ports?
I followed the directions here....http://proftpd.linux.co.uk/localsite...nked/x861.html
in learning about what ports needed to be open. I just assumed that they were talking about the ports for the server.
But, anyway, I put the ftp server outside the router firewall, (dmz) so I am assumming i have eliminated any port problems with the ftp protocol??
I have even gone as far as to foward ports on the client!! But that hardly makes any sense because I can ftp into other ftp servers correctly with no port fowarding on this client machine!! Still, no workey.
To recap, my ftp server machine is in the dmz of a linksys router....i know this is working because i have apache up and running and can log into my website. ALSO, i have no trouble listing direcotries or any other command when i ftp from the server to localhost, ie. ftp...open ....localhost...it works fine. BUT when i try to use my laptop from INSIDE the router with ws_ftp set to use passive or active mode.....no workey.....hangs while trying to list directories.
Still trying but running out of ideas...
