Having "directory listing" problem.

I have working dynamic IP with VPN on pfSense router. is already setup.

Ports (2100, 30000-30009) are already forwarded to the FTP server. FileZilla wizard test (with option) gives me the following:

Code: Select all

Connecting to
Connection established, waiting for welcome message.
Response: 220 FZ router and firewall tester ready
USER FileZilla
Response: 331 Give any password.
PASS 3.51.0
Response: 230 logged on.

PREP 30008
Response: 200 Using port 30008, data token 593475883
PORT 45,87,212,180,117,56
Response: 200 PORT command successful
Response: 150 opening data connection
Please note that is VPN out IP, not my router's external address. As a result, FileZilla gives directory listing problem.

However, with the same exact setup, sFTP can connect successfully. Please find attached sFTP and FileZilla connection logs.

I prefer FileZilla. Any hint will be much appreciated.

Best wishes to all.

Just to correct my previous message. sFTP too cannot connect from outside. Only local.
