Re: installation issues... service or not?

Thanks again... My router says there are no firmware updates, in its own Internet check. Perhaps I should check manually, but apparently there are multiple places to get such fireware (why is this so complicated?): Siemens and Bell, and I see that people are having problems with this. I have a Speed...

Re: installation issues... service or not?

I feared I may have done that. The double bracket shows only in ftptest.net, but not in the logs (at least not in the server interface window, since the log file itself is empty; it must not flush its cache right away, which is strange). Also note that the last two numbers differ in both cases, for ...

Re: installation issues... service or not?

Ok sure: I've replaced my IP address with xxx.xxx.xxx.xx and the username with xxx, but other than that, it's verbatim: Status: Resolving address of xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx Status: Connecting to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx Status: Connected, waiting for welcome message Reply: 220-FileZilla Server version 0.9.36 beta Re...

Re: installation issues... service or not?

Ok, so it somewhat works. You were right, I cannot test the connection from my own PC, even using the external IP. I wonder why? Anyway, my problem reported from ftptest.net: Error: Non-number segment in PASV reply Make sure the server is configured to allow passive mode connections. If the server i...

Re: installation issues... service or not?

Ok I see in the Server FAQ:
http://wiki.filezilla-project.org/FAQ
That I have to set the custom ports myself in the server settings, and it recommends 5000-5100. So I'll have to port forward these over as well.

Thanks for your help. I'll let you know when I get it working. ;)

Re: installation issues... service or not?

Thanks so much for the reply. So port forwarding and port mapping are the same thing. I thought it was strange that my modem has "port mapping"... so obviously it IS a router. Duh. I actually knew this but just wasn't thinking. My shortcut I made to connect to it is even named "router". Lol.

Re: installation issues... service or not?

Thanks for the reply. I have no problem connecting to the server from a client on the same PC if I connect to the internal IP. But if I connect to the external IP, it just doesn't respond... times out. I am on a PC with wireless internet connected directly to the modem. There is no router acting lik...

Re: installation issues... service or not?

Thank you for the information. I think it's great that FileZilla exists, for both Client and Server, but the documentation is very limited, making it frustrating to use unless you're already used to this kind of thing, and I fear this may be limiting its audience. I'm still trying to figure out why ...

Re: installation issues... service or not?

Ok, so after installing as NOT a service, Windows Firewall complains, and asks if it should unblock the program. Is this the reason this is not recommended?

installation issues... service or not?

I installed the server with the recommended settings, and it runs as a service, hidden in the background, which I dislike. So I reinstalled it to be not as a service, and it says not-recommended. But why?
