Having issues with FTP

Hi there,

 

I setup an FTP server on my lan side which sits behind rogers modem, if I use another device on the same LAN, I am able to ftp to the server no problem, however, I need to figure out how to setup the Hitron modem, so I can ftp to the server from an external device.

 

I logged into the modem and obtained my wan IPV4 address, however, when I attempted to ping this address from an external device, the ping failed, not sure if rogers have ping blocked. regardless, I need to figure out how to set up ftp in order to be able to reach the ftp server from an external device. 

I went under port forwarding and I created a rule to match my internal IPV4 address of the ftp server with it is port, however, the ftp from external device was unsuccessful, kindly, any help is greatly appreciate it.

 

Thank you,

 

Rafi
