i know this has been asked many times before, but nothing seems to resolve my issue.
i have vsftpd running on ubuntu 10.04. i can connect with ftp localhost on the machine. i can connect from another machine in my network. i just cannot connect from outside. the machine is behind an airport extreme managed by airport utility on a mac.
21 is open as per nmap:
macmini:~$ nmap localhost Starting Nmap 5.21 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2011-04-10 23:49 EDT Nmap scan report for localhost (127.0.0.1) Host is up (0.00045s latency). Hostname localhost resolves to 2 IPs. Only scanned 127.0.0.1 rDNS record for 127.0.0.1: localhost.localdomain Not shown: 997 closed ports PORT STATE SERVICE 21/tcp open ftp 22/tcp open ssh 631/tcp open ipp
netstat says 21 is listening:
macmini:~$ netstat -lep --tcp | grep ftp (Not all processes could be identified, non-owned process info will not be shown, you would have to be root to see it all.) tcp 0 0 *:ftp *:* LISTEN
macmini:~$ sudo iptables -L Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination
when i try to connect from my external IP (or a dyndns name which resolves there) it times out. ("control connection timed out")
as i know very little about networking, i feel like something may jump out as clearly wrong?
