Problem with Connecting to ProFTP Server
Hi, I'm running a webserver and ftp server on different ports than 80 and 21. The server is on my lan and my router forwards certain request to that machine. The webserver works when I go to it on that certain port. So when I just type in the local ip with the port I set it to, I can connect to the machine, but when I try and connect to it through the outside ip, this is what I get:
Port 1098 is not the port that I am forwarding through the router and it is not even close to the port that I put in the proftpd.conf file.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

When you are connecting from within your LAN, you don't need to use passive mode.
Getting FTPd to work behind router is a bit tricky. Your case is well-mentioned in Proftpd docs. So why don't you go to -> http://www.proftpd.org/docs/ and read Mini-HOWTO for ProFTPD and NAT (by Tobias Ekbom).
