Hi there, Been trying to setup an FTP server on my PC, without success. here's the info: - FTP server: GuildFTPd 0.999.13. Passive mode properly configured to my WAN address. - Router: Alcatel Speedtouch 510. - OS: XP, no SP (thank god). - No firewall running (when trying this). - Did port forwarding on ports 20 & 21. This works for me for other applications (p2p mainly). - ISP doesn't seem to block port 21, but I'm not sure about that (how can I be sure?) - at least they say they don't. - When trying to access with an FTP client or command line from my work PC (got a VNC connection there), the connection fails. The client (WS-FTP) is setup to passive mode. In the command line mode, BTW, the error message is "connection refused". - Furthermore, when running a packet sniffer (sniffem), I never saw any incoming packet with port 21. BTW, tried the same with an HTTP server, opening port 80. Same failure. Any help here would be appreciated. D.
