How do I access my home FTP if AirVPN is running

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I am new to AirVPN and wish to access my FTP from outside my network while the AirVPN client is running in home tomato router.

I've read articles on this forum where we take out forwarded ports from the client area but still I am a bit lost.


I've generated 10 forwarding ports from the client area of AirVPN, and i've mapped these to 10 internal ports within "Port forwarding" of my router e.g. Vsftpd config is




And assigned these to the ports airvpn have issued to me.


Where do I go from here?  


I need help with setting up the IP table rules and using my android phone as the connecting device to the ftp, do I use my real IP as the server address or do I use the VPN as the server address. 


Additionally, for port 21 In my router under port forwarding  I've set (Ext port) = 22xx  (Int port) 21     (int address 


Note, If I kill the VPN it all works... but I guess you knew that.


Thanks for any help

"do I use the VPN as the server address."


You would use the exit ip address of the server though which the airvpn client is connected. As for the tomato specifics can't help you there of the top of my head.
