Which shows that port 21 is closed - even though I have it set to forward (erm... like ports 80 & 8080 !!)
To double check it isnt an issue with the port request coming from the same computer on the same virgin media broadband line, I connected a laptop to an internet dongle to try but this still refused to connect to the FTP server - no problem connecting to my two web servers.
I can only deduce there is a problem with the superhub not forwarding ports other than 80 and 8080 unless anyone else has any solutions I can try.
Could please reset the Superhub via the pin hole reset button and try setting the port forwarding again?
Let us know if this resolves the issue so we can replace the Superhub if necessary.

I had some issues using port 8000 for FTP - it wouldn't work on a 3G dongle but did on the local network using the external dyndns domain - I don't like leaving standard ports open and the useless thing won't do port translation but it works fine for me using port 21 together with PASV. I haven't tried without as some firewalls I need to traverse only work when using PASV.
hi i have just had my so called super hub at 30 meg if you can call it that i seen to be getting slower speed than my old 20 meg and cant forward any ports at all. have done the restet thingy formated pc and still not good > what can i do next while i pay virgin a fee for a service that is not good why bring the hub out if it dont work right ?????? never had a problem with the old router and moden should we all go back and get a refund or just go to bt
a reply would be so nice as i realy feel like chucking this thing out the window
Any update on this please guys? Having just spent a fair amount of time today trying to troubleshoot why FTPing to localhost works, but not using the external IP (forwarding setup correctly), I'd also like to know when I can actually fully make use of the internet I'm paying for?
