    i set up a freenas server with an old a64 3500 box i had and decided to throw a couple raid arrays in it and got everything working just fine on the network, i decided to play with the settings a bit and set the ftp service up.

    i'm the only one that can connect to it, nobody on the internet can connect to my ftp server??

    is my isp blocking it, i called but they were kinda hush hush about it.

    if anybody wants to try my ftp server should be open right now

    68.9.168.245

    no pass or login it's public.

    let me know if you can see it??

    I have Cox. They don't block FTP so that's not the problem.

    yeah his port forwarding had it working, then it went offline and didnt come back. its working now however.

    For anyone who wants to test in firefox, type

    ftp://68.9.168.245/


    just as some free info, i cant connect with any FTP clients. They all send 'anonymous' as a user name, and get refused (unlike firefox, which allows me in, in a read only state)
