I am very new to Linux and computer science in general - please be patient with me.
I am attempting to create a read-only FTP server such that I can share some files in a manner as easy as possible for end users. I am in the preliminary stages of simply getting outside users (WAN)to be able to connect. I have had little luck. Here is my vsftpd.conf file:
pasv_address=xxx.xxx.x.xx (my external IP)
I'm having people attempt to connect via FTP at external IP : 21 (port)
Does what I'm doing make sense?
My router is forwarded 21, 60000-60100, to my local IP of my server. Nobody can connect to my server - it just doesn't work, connection times out Thanks for the help.
I can access it through FTP on the LAN easily from another computer. The problem is outside users.
