Pure-FTPd cannot connect to server from outside of network


Hi All

I have setup an FTP server on my home machine (I have a fixed IP and am hosting my website from the same machine)

For some reason I am unable to connect to my server via FTP from the internet.

I can SSH onto the server and I my website works fine just not the FTP.

I have also noticed that if I connect from the internal network using my web address (gramtech.co.uk) it does not work
Code:
ftp username@gramtech.co.uk
However, if is use
Code:
ftp username@servername
it works fine.

Hope some one has some ideas.
Please let me know if you need any further info.

My router is setup fine.

Thanks
G

There must be someone who can help me with this...

I am guessing it is something in the pure-FTPd config cos it gives an different response on the initial connection when connecting from the local network as apposed to the internet...


Humph!
