    i do have teh fallowing constelaltion:
    (i know that you should not turn a windows box into
    a "router" however this has been done ..)

    - A server having 2 NIC's an internal and an External
    The RRAS service is up and running NAT configured

    - Clients can access internet services over NAT (yes this
    works ..)
    The problem now is that all FTP Sites are not accesible
    from clients behing the NAT server, (now i agree you
    should not make a WinBox to a Router) on the NAT server
    itself no problems ..

    Basic Firewall is NOT running (disabled) i know that ftp
    opens random ports .. to the client but the client is the
    caller so this should work ..

    cann anyone tell me what i did miss ?

    ohh one last thing if FTP'ing using command line then it
    works perfect .. just tah all users are not realyl happy
    with the cmd line .. and yes i did block access to this
    with GPO's ..

    the error i get when accessing ftp sites is:
    An Error Occured opening that folder on the FTP server.
    Make sure you have persmission to access that folder.
    200 Type Set to A
    227 Entering Passive Mode (IP Separetad with comata and
    digits 14,16)
    426 Connection closed; transfer aborted

    please feel free to bomb me and if a usefull hint is
    available i would very apreciate this :)

    all of you have fun and enjoy the "Buggy road"
