FTP server issues...can't be accessed outside LAN


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hey there. I was trying to set up an FTP server inside a virtual machine, but could not access it through the internet (only on my local network) So, assuming the VM was a problem, now I am just trying to get it to run on my host machine with no luck. I have all my ports forwarded and have even tried straight up turning off my firewall with no luck.

Seems also changing the FTP server's port has no luck. Any suggestions?

Also, if it matters, I am running Verizon DSL and have found no info that states that they do not allow servers / block any ports.

Did you do the DSL modem also? On my DSL (not Verizon) I would most likely have to port forward my router plus the modem. The modem itself acts as a router.

What operating system? Hardware firewall built in to the modem/router or software? The one that comes with Windows or something else?

Ok are you on the standard FTP port (21) and if so can you try changing it. Maybe Verizon blocks 21?
