Re: Open Ports

OOL does not block many ports, so if you have tried several, it likely is because FTP is complicated. There are actually 2 ports involved and two types of FTP, passive and active. If you are using a router on your network it may need to be configured for a passive connection or if you are using active the client side may need to be configured for the different ports since most have built in configuration for ftp using ports 21/22

ok i guess i should have given more info. im using a linksys WRT320N and a qnap ts 859 nas. I set port 21 to forward to my nas. in the configuration for the nas you can specify which port to use. as i said if i change both setting to port 21 it works no problem.

Please read the link I posted. Figure out whether you are using Passive or Active FTP on the client. If you are using Active you will likely have to forward the Data port/connection on the client side. If you are using Passive you likely will need to forward the Data port/connection on the Linksys(server side). Port 21 is the control port/connection.

As I said most routers have special routines that deal with FTP because it uses 2 ports and therefore when you are not using port 21 they may not know they need to allow the connection on a different port.

»Optimum Online FAQ »What ports are currently blocked by OOL?

If you're not using one of the ports listed in the FAQ, it would not be blocked by the modem. It would either be an issue with the FTP software or router configuration.
