I have a new EA6500 and am failing at getting ftp to work. I have updated the firmware.
My ftp folder is on a Seagate USB Go-Flex drive attached directly to the router via USB. I have set up shares which I can see and access via my computer which is attached to the router.
FTP is configured to use port 21 and UTF-8.
I have tried to access ftp using my browser by typing in ftp:<router ip addr>:21. I get an "UNable to Connect" error. I checked the ip address using whatsmyip.com and it is correct.
I have also tried to access it using some stp access software in both passive and active mode. I get a login box, but always get the error "incorrect login" (error 530). I have tried this with Secure Folder Access both on and off.
Let's see, I've also tried accessing with unchecking the "Filter anonymous internet requests", but it did not change anything.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.

To protect your router against possible DNS Rebinding Attacks, certain actions will not work from behind a router. I am assuming you are doing this to test the functionality of the FTP server.

Thank you, EM. That helps a lot As you can tell, I am just learning about networks and their features. Your link leads to a very interesting site. I understood some of the technique. I'll keep working...

I also have an EA6500,
I have set up an ftp server which I can access through a web browser remotely, I can provide username and password and browse my files.
However if I try using a full function ftp client. e.g winscp or ftp command line, I can't get a login prompt:
Seems I can get files from ftp server but I can't put.
This is probably down to firewall rules.
Is it possible to configure the EA6500 ftp server so I can remotely send files to my usb shared drive ftp area?

The ftp server feature is actually not that complex. You just need to enable ftp server on the router and know the WAN ip. You also need to uncheck “filter anonymous internet request” then try to access the ftp server using a remote computer.

Check the Folder Access in the USB Storage page of the router. Did you turn it on? The access rights of your ftp server will also depend on the permissions that you have given to specific users of your choice.
