Can't FTP to externally hosted site

Can't FTP to externally hosted site

I just switched to AT&T fiber from xfinity and I can't connect via FTP(Filezilla) to an externally hosted server on port 21?  Any reason AT&T would block this?

Also, why does my external IP address keep changing (whatsmyip.com)?

I have a BGW210-700 router.

Re: Can't FTP to externally hosted site

Is this a problem with all FTP sites or just a specific server? 

 

Oh, AT&T doesn't block port 21.

 

Here are the settings I use in Filezilla and it works fine....

Re: Can't FTP to externally hosted site

just tested another FTP site.  was able to connect.  just may be my site, but administrators can't figure out why.  they have IP's blocked, but open mine, even though it keeps changing for some reason.  they can FTP in but I can't....

Re: Can't FTP to externally hosted site

I have no idea why your public IP would keep changing but that's concerning for many reasons because it's certainly not normal.  I'd be putting a call into AT&T support to have them look at your account.

 

Does your server have SFTP capabilities? If so, maybe set Filezilla up to access it that way and see what happens.

Re: Can't FTP to externally hosted site

thanks, I'll try that and contact AT&T support.  Maybe I'll post a separate topic on IP Address...
