FTP Hassels Answered

I've been trying forever to get my FTP server up and running properly, to start, this is what I have:

Filezilla running as a service, port 21 and also some randomly selected listening ports have been opened on modem/router, all the user accounts have been set up properly, and I can confirm that it works from LAN side of the network. I have a dynamic ip so I had to go the no-ip.com way, but it seems to work pretty good giving me a hostname.myftp.org address.

I've had 4-5 people try it that I want to have access to it, and only one of them can actually get on, but he was using a different ftp client that I had never heard of, the other people were trying in mac os x or with filezilla's client software. Here is what I get:

This is what I get with everyone, but my friend that could get on, it worked fine for him and the speed was great. I want to pull my hair out because I've googled over and over, and I'm following the directions, as retardedly easy as they are, and everything should just work correctly, I have filezilla setup to be a passive server and to retreive an external ip address from a url, and they have a default site that seems to also work okay. I'm just wondering if this is the problem, because I'm also running the no-ip dns software side by side? I don't think it matters though.

Oh yeah, and I also have it setup for custom port ranges 5000-5100, so unless I plan on having even 80 or more users at a time, that should be a wide enough range. Also, don't use external ip for local network connections is checked.

It seems so simplistic to me, and being able to access it locally fine, and seeing at least one other person get on it made me happy, but is there maybe something wrong in the configuration on their end(s)??

Thank you guys if you can help me hit this dumb problem in the head.

. Try setting up with the standard port 21 and see if ppl can stay connected. . Make sure your router and firewall is not blocking the needed ports. . Your ISP may be blocking traffic on ports 5000-5100. . You may need to set up port forwarding in your router.

>Try setting up with the standard port 21 and see if ppl can stay connected. . I think that's why I changed it to a custom port in the first place. >Your ISP may be blocking traffic on ports 5000-5100. .That's rather unlikely, seeing as one person got on it, and he lives all the way down in the states. >You may need to set up port forwarding in your router. . I have ports 5000-5100 forwarded, as well as port 21

. hmmmmm The only thing I can think of is to start with a fresh install. Make one change at a time and make sure ppl can stay logged on after each change. Where things fall apart should give you a clue.
