I am having trouble accessing my FTP server over the internet.
This FTP server is a wds-bridged router - Netgear DG834GUv5 - 10.1.1.2 with no DHCP.
Primary Modem/Router is TP-Link Archer D7 - 10.1.1.1 with DHCP
I can access the Netgear router locally (FTP and http) and internet is accessible throughout the network.
No matter what port number I forward to my Netgear router, it won't let me access my FTp server from the web. I have other HTTP servers on my network, eg DVR, which are accessible and thus port forwarded with no problems.
Lan scans results
Working well - FTP is successful.
Port scans results from http://mxtoolbox.com/PortScan.aspx
Port 21 has error and could not connect to my FTP server.
I think the primary modem/router has correct port forwarding rules and maybe the issue lies with the Netgear router. I have checked and the Netgear should be accepting internet FTP connections but is not in reality.
Any ideas to help me FTP over internet?
ISP is not blocking the FTP port 21 as the primary modem/router had FTP working. I need two FTP servers due to a physical location requirement hence I can't use the primary modem/router FTP server.
