Post by techaway » 08 Aug 2013 20:26

I have followed all the basic steps to setup FTP service. I face no issues when i open my web browser and type ftp://(hostname) and i can see all the files. However, if i try the same from a non home network (cyber cafe, office ) it constantly asks me for the username and password. Please help

FTP requires a few ports forwarded 21 and then you have the setup and range of passive ports under the Advanced settings section and forward those to nas4free also.

This FTP client may work better for you. FTP Manager Lite is one of the best free FTP and SFTP client software. The clean interface is super easy to use. It will perform your files transfers quickly and efficiently. It also supports FXP for superfast server to server transfers. It is perfect for backups or synchronizing servers.

First you need to create a DDNS hostname for your IP then,
Be sure you have port forward the specific port that you used on FTP configuration (port 21).
Also check the firewall status if you allow ftp connections, and also in usergroups you have to create a user to log in from another ftp program.

In my case port 21 didnt work, so i have to use another over 2000+ because ISP was blocking it.
