TG582n Port Forwarding

Sorry if this has been asked before but I can not Forward ports on the TG582n
I go to
Home > Home Network > Devices > Unknown-00-11-32-03-31-59 hit config Add FTP and but can not access FTP on my nas box over the internet. Plunet firewall is turned off. What is odd it looks like it should be working. Event log says
FIREWALL rule : Protocol: TCP Src ip: *.*.*.* Src port: 54555 Dst ip: 192.168.1.100 Dst port: 21 Chain: forward_host_service Rule Id: 1 Action: accept
this all worked before I changed the router. NAS box has not changed can access it over localnetwork.
I have rebooted the router and reset the router to defaults. still nothing. Am i missing something?

Re: TG582n Port Forwarding

I struggled with this one,
I reckon the simple answer is you can't forward FTP requests to an internal device.
Seems to be a quirk of the Router, the Router is the FTP Server & It will only connect a device plugged into the USB port.
I used a 16gb memory stick then enabled the FTP Server
If you haven't changed the default IP address you should find the server at 192.168.1.253
An unconventional configuration & a pain to setup but it does mean the FTP service is available when all other devices are powered down.

Re: TG582n Port Forwarding

That's no good to me. I have a 2TB NAS drive next to the router. Guess i need to look for a replacement router.

Re: TG582n Port Forwarding

NAS should allow a variety of connection types.
For me - with a number of different routers - my NAS works fine with various routers.
The NAS is connected via wired ethernet to the router and to various PC's via a mixture of wired or wireless ethernet.
I don't port forward anything.
The NAS supports HTML, SAMBA, FTP, NFS
NFS works well for me - you might like to investigate alternate modes of accessing the NAS.
http://www.freenas.org/ could offer some more options.

Re: TG582n Port Forwarding

I have a synology ds207+ Changing the OS on it is not really an option. I have never had an issues with it before. I can access FTP locally just not over the internet . I even set FTP to use port 73 still nothing. Not really digging this router.

Re: TG582n Port Forwarding

The problem is the Router, it's re-directing FTP traffic to it's own internal port.
Doesn't matter what  kit you've got or which OS it's running....
Replace the Router seems to be the only option, unless Plusnet support know any different ?

Re: TG582n Port Forwarding

This is driving me nuts. Never had a router quite like this one. So lets say FTP wont work. so I have decided to open ports 5000 and 7000 on my internal ip 192.168.1.100 (NAS BOx ) up to use the file station(a file browser), none FTP.
This I can not get to work either. going to start ripping hair out soon. I must be doing something wrong

Re: TG582n Port Forwarding

My 582n forwards and translates telnet and web ports just fine.
I don't think I can do the same thing with ftp due to the way that ftp works.
My Netgear ReadyNAS Duo has a facility for remote access which works via my 582n.

Re: TG582n Port Forwarding

What gets me lost is the event logs saying
Dec 4 19:48:23 FIREWALL rule : Protocol: TCP Src ip: 212.159.89.205 Src port: 55870 Dst ip: 192.168.1.100 Dst port: 73 Chain: forward_host_service Rule Id: 1 Action: accept

it should of mapped it.

Re: TG582n Port Forwarding

Well I have had enough of it. So I have ripped out that router and put in my old ADSL TP link TD-W8960N.  I set it up so it works with the BT open reach modem.
For anyone else interested this is what I did
1) delete old WAN Service and ATM interface
2) enable virtual ports that's located in Lan Ports
3)Create new ETH WAN Interface located in layer 2 interface
4)Create new WAN service
 
Settings are
a)  PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE)
b) put in PPP username and password
c) put in PPPoE service name I just used plusNET dont think it does anything
c) select new WAN interface

I do not know what all these settings do. anyone know?
  MTU Size
  Enable Fullcone NAT
  Dial on demand (with idle timeout timer)
  PPP IP extension (do not choose unless necessary)
  Use Static IPv4 Address
  Enable PPP Debug Mode
  Bridge PPPoE Frames Between WAN and Local Ports
Multicast Proxy
  Enable IGMP Multicast Proxy
