View Full Version : Any SMC Barricade users out there running an FTP server?
09-09-2001, 02:46 AM
Since this is a software/hardware/advice question I figured it belonged in Off Topic. I want to run an FTP server on one of my computers, but I am behind a SMC Barricade router. Since this router is always on the deals page, I figured there's gotta be a few out there who are using it, and of those few probably a few who might be running an FTP Server through it. Am I right? If so, could you help a hermano out and give me some advice? First off, what software do you use for the ftp, and secondly, how do you configure the router to allow it?

well I don't know how much dif. that router is than the linksys, but all I had to do was do an IP forward to my internal IP and open the DMZ host to my IP as well...
as far as FTP soft wight now I am just using Win2k's internal FTP....

well, im breaking my silence.. heres to post # 1001...
ok d00d - if you forward a port to your internal IP, then theres no need to put that IP in the DMZ as well. Its redundant, except putting it in the DMZ also forwards EVERY other port to it also, which can lead to someone compromizing your system...
Question: Are you gonna run the FTP server on port 21 (standard, but sometimes blocked by your service provider), or something like, say port 8200?
You will also need to turn off "Block WAN requests" in the router config. (if there is such an option).
I suggest using Serv-U FTP server. Its great, stable as hell, and easy to configure. Runs in 95 through 2k to Win ME. Oh, and if your just "testing" it, its possible to find a Kee-Gin ;) for full functionality, for testing purposes of course.

I run my ftp server and it's fine all you need to do is pretty much specify the port, i don't suggest using 21... and then just give out your IP address, not the internal ip of course and you should be set

i was running one...and i have the smc barricade router..
the router has it's little webserver where you can tell it to allow certain access to ip's ports(it's in the manual - really easy to set up, didn't even use the manual to figure it out).
whatever port # u set up in the software (i just downloaded some free thing from download.com), just stick it in the list, and bang...you're good...

Beautiful I will give it a shot. Thanks fellas!
I feel like an idiot. I was reading this thinking SMC (Santa Monica College) Barricade Router. Such as he is living at the SMC Dorms behind one of their routers. :disa:

hey, go here: www.dhs.org and register your free Name.dhs.org domain name... i use it all the time. Its easier to remember than a set of four octets.
Itll be a lot easier to remember once they boost that up to (is it 128?) 128 sets of octets... just imagine spitting out 384 numbers... i can see it now:
"yall come visit my webpage at: 126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.89...... etc."
you get the picture.
