FTP using DD-WRT and DynDNS
DynDNS standard account
Linksys E4200 router running DD-WRT Build 17201 mega
WD WorldBook Edition (WDWBE) NAS FTP enabled on port 8989
I am trying to access my WDWBE via FTP.
- I have FTP enabled through the WDWBE admin interface and set the port to 8989.
- I have a port forwarding rule set in DD-WRT for the IP address of the Worldbook to port 8989.
- I have added a dynDNS CNAME for my WAN IP directed to files.bgulley.com
I still cant access ftp://files.bgulley.com with or without the port specified from outside my home network.
Am I missing something or do I have something miss-configured? Any help is appreciated.
Caveats: Not looking to change my version of DD-WRT as it is the most stable version for my router, and I am not looking to set up an alternate FTP server. My WDWBE is where the files I need access too are stored. I know I could just remote into my host machine that has network access, but that is a little to "Inception" like for me. I would like direct access.

Since you're using a non-standard port, you'll need to include the port number in the address, ie: ftp://example.org:8989
If you ping the dyndns name, does it return the WAN address of your router?
