I have a VPS running Ubuntu 14.04. I'm trying to run a FTP server on it, using VSFTPD.
I think the server is running as it should, I can connect to it locally:
root@my-server:~# ftp <IP> Connected to <IP>. 220 (vsFTPd 3.0.2) Name (<IP>:root): <USER> 331 Please specify the password. Password: 230 Login successful. Remote system type is UNIX. Using binary mode to transfer files. ftp>
Doing this from outside the server gives me a timeout.
MacBook-Pro:folder user$ ftp <IP> ftp: Can't connect to `<IP>': Operation timed out ftp: Can't connect to `<IP>' ftp>
I guess I need to change something on the firewall in Ubuntu, but I don't know what and how...
