FTP server access

Hey, I have just implemented NAT overload on a 2611 XM. Now, I wish to have access to my FTP server from the internet. How do I achieve this if I wish to give private IP to the server?

Re: FTP server access

Hello,

basically, you would need a static mapping like this (assuming the IP address of your internal FTP server is 192.168.1.1, and the external interface is Dialer 0):

ip nat inside source static tcp 192.168.1.1 21 Dialer0 21 extendable

HTH,

Thanks GEORG PAUWEN.

I 'll try the above configuration soon and would let u know.

Re: FTP server access

Hello,

also make sure to have another translation in place for port 20, which is used for FTP data transfer.

Also be aware, that clients using passive FTP will not be able to transfer files as they will use a random server assigned port, which your NAT router is not aware of.

Hope this helps! Please rate all posts.

Regards, Martin
