I have configured a D-Link NAS on my home network. There is a built in ftp server to allow me to access my files remotely. When trying to connect to the ftp server (FileZilla), I get the error response 'Timeout detected!' and 'Could not retrieve directory listing'.

I can ping the ip and have programmed my router to let the ftp port through.

Not understanding what else there is to do.

Turn off PASV mode.

Or, if you need to use passive FTP, make sure you forwarded the ports. Usually, an SPI firewall in a router will be the culprit.

Doesn't seeme to like active mode either. It's saying "500 I won't open a connection..."; "Could not retrieve directory listing."

Is this your WAN ip address?

This can be closed. I tried to set up the ftp server to use a more obscure port, and then had the router let the port through. That's where I was having my problems. As soon as I set everything up to use port 21, it worked fine. Not sure why the non-standard port wouldn't work, but I guess I just won't be getting fancy.
