Running ftp server behind barricade
MaZSuPer Apr-18-01 09:15 PM
as my my isp here in uk allows me to run a ftp server as long as it's not anon and password protected. after installing the barricade everything was fine except that i could not get the ftp server to run on a port i specified. i could gain access using the internal ip i had given that machine that was running the ftp. my friends could not log in using that ip , i also gave them the real ip yet still no ftp access , i also could not get irc to work eithier any help would be apprechiated.

p.s. here in the uk i had to pay 160 pounds nearly double what i could get it for in the us and it came with one cable only talk about feeling i got ripped off....ciao

Do you have the latest firmware installed? That is what SMC says in their FAQs to do to run a web server behind the Barricade. http://www.smc.com/smc/pages_html/support.html Larry

Obviously you cannot use a local IP (192.168.123.x) to access the FTP server from the Internet. So, I would think that you would have to have a static IP from your provider for the Barricade or your users on the Internet would have to know what the dynamic IP was at the time they tried to connect. Then you would have to configure a virtual server on the Barricade so that port 21 was routed from it (i.e., so FTP packets to the Barricade’s IP, port 21 are routed to the local IP, port 21 of the FTP server). The FTP server would probably have to have a static local IP that was outside of the IP scope assigned to the Barricade’s DHCP server (e.g., 192.168.123.10). Internet users would have to FTP to the Barricade’s IP address unless and Internet domain is created and registered. Larry
