How do I use ftp with two network cards and two IP addresses?

By acampagn ·
I'm trying to FTP(from bash window) from one Windows 2000 Cygwin PC (with two NIC cards and 2 IP addresses) to another Windows 2000 Cygwin PC (with two NIC cards and 2 IP addresses). One NIC card is used for the local area network and the other is used for a wide area network. The FTP command returns a time out error when I ftp from local area network to local area network.

The Windows 2000 Cygwin PCs can be accessed from either the local area network or the wide area network. You can FTP from either of Windows Cygwin 2000 PCs to other computers/PCs on the wide area network. The Windows 2000 Cygwin PCs can FTP to each other only if they use the wide area NIC/IP address or the computer name with the FTP command. Any attempt to FTP with local area NIC/IP address will result in a timeout error.

can only have 1 default gateway per machine regardless of the nics. Any more and you need to configure routing & remote access and add routes.

FTP port (21) has to be opened on ur local area network for the computers in it.

When ever u send an ftp command in ur local area connections the connection request seeks for the port 21 on the destination computer..if the port number 21 is not open in ur LAN for the destined computer...It would give u an exception of timeout error..

Try to open the port 21 on ur local area network for the destined computer..and the source comp to..

In tech turns we can say "U have to do a port forwarding" on our LAN router..for port 21

All the best..
