I also found a forum post about installing some extra packages (their issue passive ftp was not working so they installed kmod-nf-nathelper). I tried installing that package, rebooted my router...but no change.
I assume I need to enter those commands, can you help direct me to the terminal where I enter them?
(I am familiar with Linux and SSH, but have not dabbled much in the openwrt OS.)
In case they do work, can someone explain why I needed to use them and install the additional packages?
FYI: I confirmed that before any other changes are made, I tested the access to my Minecraft server...it could not connect so I assume there is something strange with the way that Openwrt handles port forwarding since none of the ports I opened seem to be very accessible...
I will read more on that. I executed those commands from a terminal (though I am not sure why it was necessary if I already installed the package through the gui?). After performing those steps, FTP is now working.
The minecraft server however, is not accessible. Does anyone have an explanation as to why I have issues with that?
