ftp issues with Foscam R2 camera

I try to setup the FTP with my foscam camera.

Connecting via filezilla to the r7000 is no problem

Connecting with the camera to te ftp server = error.

 

Connecting with the camera to another FTP server (outside network) is no problem.

 

So the combination of the R7000 ftp and the Foscam does not work.

 

i have read other topics but no solutions provided. Smiley Sad

updatet the firmware yesterday for the foscam and netgear.

 

how can i debug this issue?

Model: R7000|Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band WiFi Router

Re: ftp issues with Foscam R2 camera

It may be a nat loopback problem which netgear doesn't support ( from what I've heard)  which I'm guessing and in no way an expert. But using a 3rd party FW may solve the problem.

 

http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/asuswrt-merlin-on-netgear-r7000.71108/    I am using this on my r7000 and it works great. It also has a NAT Loopback Option

Unfortunately this is not my problem, because on the camera i use the local IP address of the ftp server. So i should not go outside my local network. Then again, it should i cannot check that. Smiley Sad

 

Alternative firmware for me is the last solution.

 

Thanks anyway.

For years I thought 3rd party was taboo, But I finally got fed up and after seeing this Xwrt-Vortex I started reading about it. It's worth looking into. It's as easy to load as stock FW and also just as easy to revert back to stock. Eitherway good luck.

Yes and this one is more in line with OEM ....it's not as complicated as other 3rd world versions.
