Accessing storage (NAS) over the Internet via FTP | FRITZ!Box 7490 | AVM International

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/13

Of course you don’t want this. So by the time you read this, the connection has been closed.

For testing some Internet of Shit stuff from a client that cannot do SFTP, I needed a temporary FTP accessible connection.

These links helped:

TL;DR:

  1. Preparing the USB stick:
    1. Ensure the USB disk is FAT/FAT32/NTFS
    2. Create a directory in the root of the USB disk for the FTP user (for now: FtpDirectory)
    3. Insert the USB disk in the Fritz!Box
  2. Logon to the Fritz!Box web UI
    1. Configure a user for FTP:
      1. In the menu, go to System, then FRITZ!Box Users
      2. Click Add user
      3. Name the user (for now: MyFtpUser)
      4. Ensure that user *only* has a checkmark for `Access to NAS contents`
      5. Click the button Add directory
      6. In the popup click Select folder
      7. Choose the FtpDirectory you just made
      8. Click OK
      9. Ensure the read and write checkboxes are enabled
      10. Click OK
    2. Configure the USB stick for FPT access
      1. In the menu, go to Home Network, then USB Devices
      2. Observe if the device is visible and has the correct file system (if not: ask AVM)
      3. In the menu, go to Internet, then Permit Access
      4. Click on the FRITZ!Box Services
      5. Ensure there is a checkmark at Internet access to your storage media via FTP/FTPS enabled
      6. At TCP Port for FTP/FTPS, fill in 21 (many IoT devices cannot use a different port)
      7. Ensure there is *no* checkmark at Allow only secure FTP connections (FTPS)
      8. Make a note of the value after FTP address (something like ftp://example.org:21`)
      9. Click Apply
  3. Test

XS4ALL has stopped providing ftp in the middle of 2017: now you can use sftp or sftp.

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/12/03

As of 20170711, the servername ftp.xs4all.nl does not support the ftp protocol any more; xs4all clients can only use the server sftp.xs4all.nl on port 22.

I missed that because I hardly use ftp except for the few rare occasions where I was in an environment without ftp.

So recently I found out: good move!

Since I still need this every now and then (but far less often than 10 years ago), I have set up a very small ftp server at home with limited storage and very limited users that I can turn on/off when needed.

Much better solution.
