FTP Directory

by oldbaritone In reply to FTP external access error

It sounds like your FTP server is publishing a non-existent directory. You do not want to share the root directory of your C: drive. That is very bad security.

You may need to reset the directory your FTP service is serving to the web.

Firewall

by Mohammad Oweis In reply to FTP external access error

Check the firewall on the server, most probably its blocking your connection from the outside.

Try to open ports (20,21) for all IP addresses, not just for your LAN.
