FTP problems with AG241

I have been using FileZilla and other FTP programs successfully for some time but have recently changed from a D-Link ADSL router to a Linksys AG241.

I am having real problems with FTP not only with FileZilla but with native FTP . I have manged to transfer some files; now without changing anything - in FileZilla or on the router I cannot transfer anything. All I get is retries and timeouts. It as if a capacity has been reached. These are small files 40 - 100 KB . if I try later I can again copy a file then I cannot. With the d-link I never had these issues but this router has many more settings.

I do get a directory listing when the programs start also I can change file properties or delete files but the files I transfer have a size of 0 bytes.

Can anyone help and point me to the necessary settings in my router.

I have disabled ZoneAlarm and am using W2000 (no operating system firewall). I have not set up the firewall in the router. Anyway I have Passive mode set in FILEZILLA

Thanks Allan

I have reverted to the d-link and as I suspected all is OK. So much for buying newer hardware. :roll:

I still would like to use the linksys modem for other reasons - so again if anyone can let me know the settings they use to connect to plusnet with other than d-link hardware it may help me solve the router problem.

I have been using the AG241 for many months without a hitch myself. I've not used filezilla myself so im not sure what that would need, but most programs its just a matter of mapping the ports the program needs.

If you are trying to run a server in passive mode, then you will have to open a port range on the router and specify that port range in the ftp server. Also it'll likely be necessary to specify the external ip. somewhere- I had to do the same when i ran serv-u.

Yes I had a little more time and tried the router again.

I have found that everything works if I turn off passive mode and switch off zonealarm. which backs up what you say.

Is this the ip of the platform I am ftp'ing to ? I have 3 that I use regularly or is it a generic FTP server - would appreaciate a dump of your router settings.

Thanks for the help

I gave in - it also started dropping ip's the DHCP seemed to be faulty. I bought a d-link 504T which just works "out of the box". FTP firewalls on etc. etc.

I returned the linksys to Amazon

I am having the same problem. I have tried turning off my s/w firewall and the one on the router, still no joy. Also tried using different FTP programs (CuteFTP, SmartFTP and Internet Explorer). Also tripple checked all p/w, usernames etc as well as making sure that the FTP port forwarding was activated on the router. Still cannot resolve this problem.

Also what is this passive mode you speak of?

PS I am trying to connect to my PN webspace
