How to Create an Externally Accessible FTP Server
- Access the server preferences in .
- Click New FTP server.
Result: The New FTP server page is displayed.
- Create an FTP server within RemotelyAnywhere with the default settings, listening on all available interfaces, with the default FTP port of 21.
- Set the IP address of the network interface connecting to the NAT router as 192.168.1.2, the subnet mask to 255.255.0.0, and the external IP address to 184.108.40.206.
- Set the port range for passive data transfers to 5200-5299.
- Configure your router so that it forwards connections to 220.127.116.11:21 to 192.168.1.2:21 and make sure port 21 is open on the firewall.
- Configure the router to forward connections to 18.104.22.168:5200-5299 to 192.168.1.2:5200-5299 and make sure that you open the 5200-5299 port range on the firewall.
- Finish configuring your remaining FTP settings (security, users, and so on).
- Select the Use implicit SSL encryption option for your FTP server.
Note: If a server uses implicit SSL connections, it will accept these connections alone and clients must be configured accordingly. Most clients default to port 990 when creating implicit SSL FTP site entries.
- Click Apply.
