Re: Connection outside firewall not working

I ran a netstat -a to look at various ports, and found the below (among other lines). Not sure why it's showing that IP address? But the ports appear to be listening and available to the outside world? TCP 127.0.0.1:21 owner-PC:0 LISTENING TCP 127.0.0.1:22 owner-PC:0 LISTENING TCP 127.0.0.1:443 owne...

Re: Connection outside firewall not working

So are there any good programs/tools that allow you to accurately diagnose where a port is being blocked from, whether it's the modem, router, or Windows? It seems like these FTP programs should come bundled with that sort of tool, as 90% of the setup issues relate to those components. Also you ment...

Re: Connection outside firewall not working

I changed the port in Cerberus not sure I guess where else to change it to make it 100 all the way around. In any event neither port works when testing via net2ftp.com it times out no matter what I try.

Re: Connection outside firewall not working

Okay so I spoke with my cable company, and they have disabled networking on my modem, which means it is now functioning as a modem only and not a router. But the tests still do not work. So I want to make sure I'm testing properly. On the net2ftp.com site there is a section for basic testing and one...

Re: Connection outside firewall not working

One other question though, if my cable "modem" is actually functioning as a "router", does it make sense that I would have no issues with the internal network connection, only external?

Re: Connection outside firewall not working

Let me clarify further- I have a cable modem, which in turn is connected to a router which is running dd-wrt. It is possible that my cable modem also acts as a router, not sure about that, but I've never been provided information from them on that, so I'll need to check with them. The router I've be...

Re: Connection outside firewall not working

Let me also state that I also tested this by bypassing the router, by plugging directly into my cable modem, and it still timed out.

Re: Connection outside firewall not working

What's odd though is that even though I have set the listening port for the Cerberus server to 100, I still have to specify port 21 when connecting. My guess is that you've changed the default FTP listener port, and not the FTP listener for the actual IP address you are logging in over. Changing th...

Re: Connection outside firewall not working

I'm using FTP to connect. There is nothing in the log that shows when connecting via external (I use net2ftp.com to test it). I can connect to the server from any PC on my internal network just fine. What's odd though is that even though I have set the listening port for the Cerberus server to 100, ...

Connection outside firewall not working

I have several hours into trying to get things to work, however when attempting to connect to the server from outside the firewall it simply times out. When connecting internally things work fine. I have completely disabled the Windows 7 firewall to rule that out. In my port range forwarding in my r...
