FTP and Netgear DG834 v2

Since installing a Netgear DG834 v2 router, I am unable, using the inbuilt FTP of FrontPage 2000, to upload to my web site. After a few minutes of trying, I get the message "Unable to build data connection. Operation timed out"
If I disable the router and use my old usb modem, then there is no problem.
Is there something in the router that needs changing which will enable me to ftp to my site?
Any help, in words of one syllable Cheesy , would be appreciated.

Hi there,

In short, there shouldnt be anything you need to do with the Netgear to allow this. In the router firewall all outbound traffic should be allowed by default.

Have you altered any settings in the firewall?

If you acces the router config and check the firewall rules, then the outbound permissions, you will see if anything is bolcked.

Hi,

Have you tried selecting passive ftp mode or vice versa? I have the earlier version of the same router, and after selecting passive mode, I can ftp without any problems.

Cheers,

I hadn't, but I have now.
I created a New Service
Name FTP1
Type TCP
Start Port 21
Finish Port 21

Then I added it to the firewall rules
Outbound: Enabled
Service Name: FTP1
Action: Always Allow
Lan User: Any
Wan Server: Any

Inbound: Enabled
Service Name: FTP1
Action: Allways Allow
Lan Server IP Address: 192.168.0.1
Wan Server: Any

Makes no difference but. Still get the unable to build data connection message.

How do you do that?
I can't find any reference to "passive mode" in either FrontPage or in the router setup documentation.

Thanks to you both for your willingness to help.

You won't need to add any rules to the router firewall, since it's default rules will be enough.

You do however need to locate the passive FTP option, it is there but I don't use frontpage so I can't help you on where to locate it.

You could try creating the site, and manually uploading it using a ftp program.
