Asus ftp server
How to setup and access your asus rt-n66u ftp device
Also, what measures could be taken to make it more secure? I’m aware of an encrypted file transfer protocol known as SFTP. Is it possible to use SFTP instead of FTP, or are there any other options for increasing security?
The solutions I’ve found so far are far superior to my expectations, but I must emphasize that I cannot afford a server that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. However, I’m looking for a simple solution that will allow my users to access sections of the share and download/upload data in a more secure manner. They don’t have much experience, so I had to write a step-by-step guide for them to map the share as a network location.
FTP-ES (FTP with explicit SSL/TLS) is also available and runs on port 21. In this mode, the client initiates a plaintext session after querying the server’s capabilities and then instructs the server to initiate an encrypted session. Both command and data sessions are usually encrypted, but the client has control over this. It’s backwards compatible since it begins with a plaintext session.

I initially assumed (incorrectly) that the issue I was having connecting to the client’s FTP server was due to a problem with the ASUS RT-AC66U router.

It was, after all, connected to a Comcast Business Internet account.
The real mistake was that the Comcast tech support individual who said I placed the 3943 CISCO modem into bridge mode incorrectly DID NOT CHECK a checkbox under Advanced Port Management that says “Disable Rules & Allow All Packets.”
A different Comcast technician noticed this tonight and tested the package. (For some reason, Comcast’s late-night tech support seems to be superior to others.)
ASUS appears to have its own FTP server built into the router, allowing you to connect an external drive and serve files through an ASUS domain name (ftp:/domain name you create.asuscomm.com). They’re attempting to make it easier to share files when away from home or the office. I understand.
That’s right, even when FTP is disabled in the router, the ASUS RT-AC66U WiFi router uses and holds ports 20 and 21 for its built-in FTP server.

For an attached USB to this router, I began both the windows samba and ftp features. The problem is that the router’s ftp server is made public on the WAN side, and I couldn’t find a way to disable it.
For tcp traffic, I port forwarded 192.168.1.1:20 & 21 to ip 127.0.0.1:20 & 21 as a temporary measure. That seemed to work, but I’m not sure if there’s a better way. Or if this is a good approach for concealing the ftp server.
2nd question: I also have a 4TB WD MyCloud that I attempted to fully isolate from the rest of the world. I went to firewall -> network services filter and blacklisted all requests from the source lan ip 192.168.1.100, using a wildcard of *.*.*.* in the destination ip, in an effort to give mycloud zero outside access. To keep the firmware up to date, I disable this rule every few months.
I did disable mycloud cloud access in its GUI, and I believe it works, but I wanted to be extra safe in case the samba shares were somehow redirected beyond my lan and onto the wan due to an uPnP flaw. Maybe I’m paranoid, but it’s safer to be safe than sorry, and 4TB is a lot of personal data.

I’m trying to set up backup for my new W10 device on my router’s USB port because it’s on a different power circuit. Plus, backing up to the same position as the backed up file doesn’t make it backup in my maind; it’s just a waste of room!
Thanks to @sylerner for getting things started. To delve further, anonymity is required. FTP ensures you don’t disclose your true identity, but you will also need to tell a placeholder. If the username is “anonymous,” the server will recommend a password for you. A friendly GUI is likely to disregard all of this, and a web browser is likely to submit a placeholder password like “guest.” RFC 1635 is an FTP-related informational text from 1994.
Your SMB omission may be due to a similar age-related problem. Routers often support unstable versions of Windows that aren’t supported by default in recent Windows versions, particularly if the Windows is a fresh install.
