Why won't it work when i have it on an open port and its running?
There is no such thing as a filezilla server. You mean you started an FTP service on a computer and you wish to connect to it with the Filezilla client? If so make sure your server has an open port in it's firewall for FTP and make sure the client can ping the FTP server. Also double check to make sure the FTP service is running. It would help to know what OS you're using to run the FTP server.
You need to explain yourself better.
Firewall, make sure it allows incoming connections.
Give us your operating system and your firewall that you are running.
Don't use FileZilla server.
Why? out of interst?
OMG, i am trying to run an FTP NOT THE FUCKING CLIENT. HOLY SHIT. I SAID FILEZILLA SERVER. When i use it on open ports, it won't allow people to connect, but when i use those same ports for a l4d2 server, it works fine and ppl can connect.
A filezilla server can imply you are trying to connect to a server...
Now we understand. Don't get angry at us, we are trying to help. Spend more time on your thread next time if you want correct help immediately...
He did say server in his original post...
No he didn't, it says server in his title...
Sorry for the caps, i wasn't mad at you, and i just woke up. let me re-type my problem
I am trying to host an FTP server. When i run it on clearly open ports and the server is active, it won't allow external connections to come in. I have used the same ports on a l4d2 server to check. People could connect there. Why can't they connect to the FTP. Does it have to run on port 21? or can it be any port thats not in use? Things like that.
I know my ISP filters ports incoming 20-23,25 53, 80, 443, and a few other ports. Besides that, if you've port forwarded 21, I don't know.
Don't get mad at those who are trying to help you, otherwise you may find the help disappears.
I have ports 9987, 27016, and 27015 open. Will it work on those?
you can open port 21/tcp and 21/udp, that could fix it. Setting the port to something like 27015 can work too.
FTP only uses TCP on ports 21/20.
What we need is your IP so someone, like myself can telnet to the port/s you have opened and see if they are accessible from the outside WAN. You need to make sure you properly port forwarded the ports to your internal private IP. Also make sure your host is set to a static IP outside your DHCP scope on your router and or you have it in the DHCP exclusion list. If we cannot telnet to that port then your ISP is blocking that port, or you do not have port forwarding setup right, or lastly, you need to make sure you make firewall exception rules on your computer for the FTP server and ports.
Odd... well, im not giving you my ip. I know they are open, just not 21/20
Well dude, how are people going to connect to your ftp without knowing what the IP is? Facepalm...
