View Full Version : Help setting up Kerio's WinRoute Lite to pass on FTP connections over LAN

05-06-2003, 11:19 PM
Right now Im wanting to setup WinRoute Lite.. Ive got it installed and am forwarding incoming connections from port 20 to my networked PC - which is running the FTP Server...

Only problem is..

It wont pass it on?!

How do I set it up? From there I have a no-ip.com account I'll be using.. but for now.. I just want the thing to go! Even connecting from a 3rd LAN PC to the Gateway should forward on the packets, but it doesnt.. Why?



BTW - I tried the same app by Analogue X - PortMapper.. didnt work either.

Gateway's running WinXP Pro.

Just thought I'd say there's no Firewall on the Gateway, nor on the Linux box at ALL.. NONE.... That'll come when this project is actually up and running...

And I can connect DIRECTLY (eg to the FTP server from all 3 PC's on the LAN...,2 and 4 (3 was my laptop.. ;-))

Any ideas people?

Im connected on a regular Joe Bloggs Dial-Up, and I get the error message from an external source connecting to my no-ip.com account, or my 3rd PC connecting to my no-ip.com account... or the 3rd PC connecting to the Gateway's IP for that matter.

And yes, No-IP.com say that you CAN use the No-IP address to host an FTP server!

are you using ICS????? on the Win XP computer????

also how is your network setup????

Okay, here's how it goes:

Gateway PC = = P933mhz
WinXP Pro with ICS, No Firewall, hosting WinRoute Lite


FTP Server = = AMD1700
RedHat Linux 9, No Firewalls or anything of the likes, hosting VSFTPD on Port 21.

And also on the switch is:

Client PC for Surfing = = TABCVid
Win2K Pro, just plays WinAmp and surf's when the family wants to use more than one PC :-)

If you are using ICS then you will not be able to use run a FTP server :(
You will need a router

I know this because I was trying to set-up a HTTP & ftp severs myself with ICS( or a switch) & it does not work :(

try moving the FTP server next to the gateway computer, it shoud work

You're running ICS and WinRoute Lite? I thought WinRoute was meant to be like a replacement for ICS. You could try adjusting the advanced settings for ICS to allow access to ftp servers on other computers on the network.

Ah, you mean in the connection properties for my Dial-Up?
Im at work right now, I'll check when I get home!

Thanks JM, Works a treat and Ive got Sal in there checking it all out for me :-)

Ive ticked the FTP server in the properties of the connection.. and Kerio WinRoute Lite is going, but Im not sure if I need WinRoute :-)

Thanks also to Stu for your help on MSN :-)

Kerio WinRoute Lite offers a fast and easy solution for sharing a single Internet connection for your entire network. With firewall security and newly added network functionality such as port mapping and support for multimedia, online gaming and IP telephony.

Kerio WinRoute Lite proves to be an ideal solution for home and small office networks. Built on the proven Kerio WinRoute Pro technology it includes a powerful Network Address Translation (NAT) router, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server, Domain Name Server (DNS) forwarder and newly added Port Mapping to host several services on your local network.

Connect through a Dial-up line or ISDN, DSL, Cable, T1/LAN or DirecPC.

Compatible with Windows® 9x, ME, 2000, NT4.0 and XP.

That is from the Kerio website. By the sound of things you don't need ICS on at all. As WinRoute Lite will be doing what ICS does with hopefully a tad more control and do it better.
