Thread: FTP port 21 possible to change ?

  1. #1

    FTP port 21 possible to change ?

    The built-in FTP-server uses the standard FTP-port 21.
    I'm using the WL500W behind a livebox (Sagem FAST 3202) which is also using port 21 (for updating firmware).
    Because they are both using this port I'm not able to get data-transfer from an external IP.
    I have setup another FTP-server on a PC connected to the WL500W and changed port 21 into port 8021 which is working OK.
    Is it possible to change the FTP-port on the WL500W ?

    I have a livebox as well and I'm not proud of it

    just set the ftp client to active connection instead of passive and it should work

    otherwise you can make a virtual server on a different port.
    Port Range: 200
    Local IP:
    Local Port: 21
    Protocol: tcp

    this will put port 21 on port 200 on the wan
