I have an older Buffalo NAS that I use as an FTP server. Never had any problems, even after I changed my ISP to Qwest DSL last week. But I had wireless problems with the modem, and they swapped out my modem, and now with the new modem, I get a 421 Login Incorrect error when it tries to connect to the FTP Server address. Though this version of WS_FTP Pro is not really compatible with Windows 7, I have been using it successfully up until my modem change.
It keeps giving me a "421 Login Incorrect" error. I have reset the password on the NAS, and the modem is configured to accept FTP traffic via the NAS which is connected via Ethernet to the modem. All settings are the same as on the old modem, but no FTP.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what the problem might be? I'm guessing it's a problem or just a setting in the modem, but not sure what setting.
I have an "Application" setting created for FTP within the modem, like it was on the old modem.
Do I need to set up a Port Forwarding rule in the modem?
Suggestions welcome. Modem is an Actiontec Q1000. Laptop with Windows 7, 64 bit, using WS_FTP Pro 7.62.
