      Running FTP Server - Port Forwarding/ Acess Problems?

      Hi,

      just got my new connection through sky and have the new black router
      (DG934?)

      I run an ftp server (Serv-U) from my pc and have forwarded the relevant port it has always run on (841) and the 10 passive ports (2000-2010) I have configured from both inbound (to my local machine 192.168.0.2) and outbound but no one can connect to the server?

      Is there anything specific I should know about running FTP on the sky service? never had a problem on pipex?

      There shouldn't really be any kind of a problem doing this. Sky do not appear to block any ports, and it definitely doesn't block FTP. Did you use the damned CD-ROM that Sky sent you? That installs firewall software on your PC, so perhaps it's that that's causing the problem.

      The other thing is, what exactly are you allowing on the outbound rules? You shouldn't need to have any outbound rules to run an FTP server, either in active or passive mode. NAT will handle an outgoing active connection just fine, and there's no outgoing connection when using passive mode.

      EDIT where is the firewall software? I didnt install the mcaffee if thats what you mean??

      Yeah, I was thinking of the McAfee firewall software on the Sky CD. I'm not sure if it fiddles around with your Windows firewall settings, irrespective of whether you install McAfee or not.
