vweb: profptd works from inside, but not outside


I have created the vweb server. It works okay at this point, except for one thing. I have used proftpd in chroot jail mode in order to support ftp uploading for websites on my server. I can access it from inside my network, by using my domain name. It is running on the standard FTP port. However, outside my network, I cannot access it. File Explorer or Windows Explorer will say it timed out waiting for a response. It is running on the non-standard port 22 from the outside of the network. That's because I have one Internet connection to a router with NAT, and one public IP for the router. I can pretty much open all the ports I wish, but each port must be unique. I have already opened an FTP port on my NAS's FTP server on the standard FTP port. So I couldn't use the standard port for this too. It goes by NAT from port 22 to port 21 TCP. But it won't work. Please help. Hopefully this is simple.

Is the FTP server running in active or passive mode?

According to this: http://slacksite.com/other/ftp.html, I know now the difference between the two modes, or at least a basic understanding.

I don't know which mode it was in, or what the problem was, but after changing the port to port 210 from the outside, all is well. Oh! I "think" I know. I believe that SSH was running on mainrouter on port 22, so there was a conflict. That would explain my message about SSH when I tried to access from command line in Windows 7. I think it's solved, but if you have any advice before I close it or any other input, please tell me before I close it.
