320L and FTP

I need to be able to use FTP externally and LAN but I just can't figure it all out.

Components
320L
DBPower WiFi HD Camera
Virgin Media router

I need to setup everything so that my security cam can FTP to 320L and I can access folders externally.  For some this will easy for me I've tried this and that but I keep failing then leaving it a few days and trying something else but don't have the knowledge or expertise to check where it's all going wrong.

I'm screaming for help guys (n gals) and will offer a financial reward ($20 approx via donation/paypal/amazon email voucher) if needed to any member (must have been active member of the forum for >6months) who connects via Teamviewer - checkes my router, 320L and sets up my DBPower WiFi HD Camera.

Please pm me if you're willing to assist

Thanks

If nobody takes you up on the offer, we could still try to walk you through the process via the forum. I'd be happy to help as best as I can.

I'd suggest taking on each step separately. First of all, are you sure your camera supports uploading via FTP? Is the manual online anywhere? I'm currently looking into using a similar cam as a security camera so I'd be interested to learn of your experiences. From my research so far, it looks like most of these cams don't support connecting to existing WiFi networks and thus will never be able to do FTP uploads to your 320L. I might be wrong though. And even if I'm right, we might find a way to get one of your devices to download the cam's recordings.

FTP works very well letting you specify your FTP server with a login and password and path for where you want stuff sent. The cam will send snapshots as well as video clips (AVI) to the FTP as a motion detected alarm and you can specify sensitivity, length of video clip etc.

The instructions/manual is pretty basic and can't find online.

This is screen capture for port forward from router (Virgin Media ISP)

The IP is my 320L NAS

This is 320L FTP Server

In a hurry right now, so just a quick guess: Have you tried enabling port forwarding for the passive mode port range (55536..55663) on your router? Not sure what the camera uses, but it's worth a try.

Thanks for this.  I can now share folders/files via Filezilla externally - tested via Teamviewer, connected to nephews laptop (some 6 miles away) connected via dynamic dns and was able to download files... brilliant  ;)

Using same dynamic dns I setup IPCam as per image

If I change port it fails to connect but with port 21 (still open via router and via 320L NAS then only error seems to be with permissions - "Failed to delete file" yet I've tried media and new folder on Vol 1
