NAT Stopping FTP

Hi folks.

I've been trying to use FTP downloads to my PC but can't get the data connection to work.

It was working fine when I had a DGND3700 but when I changed to Orbi the problems started.

Through working with guys on help forums, it seems the Orbi stops the data connections NAT style.

Does anyone know how I can bypass any restriction?

I've added the ports to the forwarding section already.

Re: NAT Stopping FTP

Just an update.
After managing to borrow another router I found it wasn’t the NAT that was causing the problem.
I did however find it was due to some bad coding in my server.
Thanks for the help

Thanks for the quick response.

It's an RBR50 with V2.7.4.24

There's no model number on the modem but it's supplied by Virgin Media.

However it's the same one that worked ok with my last router.

Re: NAT Stopping FTP

Would need more information on the Virgin Media modem. Most of these have a built in router which could cause problems. Need the model # to verify this...

Re: NAT Stopping FTP

This is a modem/Router but the router is disabled.

The datails I can get from it is: Hub 3.0

Hope this helps

Re: NAT Stopping FTP

Would be good to know what NG router you are referencing.
