Open TCP port 21 to the NAS IP Address.gpochet wrote:thanks for the info, groundhound. There is no option for forwarding a FTP port. The only options are TCP, UDP, TCP&UDP. I will look into putting the OOMA behind the router
Another option is simply to put your router into the DMZ of your OOMA. I would really suggest this in most cases where you have the OOMA in front of a router. This way, you only have to configure your router for firewall rules.gpochet wrote:thanks for the info, groundhound. There is no option for forwarding a FTP port.

I have been trying to get and FTP server to work with no luck and didn't understand this option mentioned about putting my router in the OOMA DMZ. My setup is Cable Modem-->OOMA-->Linksys Router-->FTP Server (running on Network Storage link hooked to a 500G Maxtor External Drive). When I remove my OOMA from the equation, all works fine and I am able connect to my FTP server from a DOS prompt. When I put OOMA back into the configuration...nothing works.
I configured port forwarding correctly, so I assume this functinality is just crappy from ooma.
Do I have other options that don't leave my network exposed (DMZs scare me a bit), or am I SOL.
btw- I am no techy...just a regular joe muddling through, so "big animal picture" recommendations are MUCH appreciated.
You should not be concerned about putting your router into Ooma's DMZ from a security standpoint. It just means your router should be exposed to all communication from your modem, like when the Ooma is not there. Your router still protects your network.floydb wrote:Do I have other options that don't leave my network exposed (DMZs scare me a bit), or am I SOL.
If you want to lock it so the routers WAN IP address can't change, edit the DHCP server in the ooma to only issue one IP address by making the start and end IP address 172.27.35.2. Also put 172.27.35.2 in the DMZ field. Reboot your router or if you know how, log into the router and do a release followed by a renew of the router's WAN IP address.floydb wrote:Got it. Thanks for the clarification. Does that mean I just put the external IP address of my router into the ooma DMZ field? Is that all there is to it?
