trying to set up a machine as an ftp site on the LAN. I configured port forwarding for port 21 on the hub and assigned a fixed ip to the machine hosting the ftp site so that traffic is forwarded to that ip. I signed up with noip.com so I can go ftp://******.ddns.net:21 which resolves to the assigned external ip and points the connection at port 21 which should then be forwarded to my local machine but I am not able to connect. Using FileZilla Server as the ftp server and trying to connect from a remote machine to which I've connected using TeamViewer. Any clues what I've missed or am doing wrong ?? Thanks.
I've since gone into cmd.exe and run netstat -a -b and I notice that it gives this output: "TCP :21 cex:0 LISTENING FileZilla Server"
From what I understand this suggests that it is a firewall or porting issues. I have switched off the firewall on my PC and have tried it with both the firewall on and off on HomeHub3 software but to now available.
I've been going around in so many circles that I have read that port forwarding only works with that modem software if the firewall is switched ON but another thread suggests that HH3 doesn't allow for port forwarding at all?
