Hello Node-RED enthusiasts,
I am using Node-RED to obtain certain data from a remote server to my local server hosted on my PC via the FIle zilla.
I am able to access the remote server on the hardware and check my files and download it via the File Zilla.
I have configured the node-RED on the Hardware to automatically transfer the files from its server to a folder on my PC by creating a server in my PC using File Zilla. When I have connected the ethernet cable direclty from the Hardware to my PC and tested the FTP, it happened smoothly. But, when I connect the hardware to the internet and separate the PC and Hardware from physical connection, I get the error as "Error: Timeout while connecting to server".
I tried connecting to my FTP server from my PC using the IP address, Username and password I have given while creating it, I am able to see the folder and all the files. But, the same when I try from a different PC(say an external PC connected to the internet), I get the Timeout to connect to server error.
Is it because my connection is not stable as I am connected through Wi-Fi to the internet in the host PC which acts as a server? Should I have a strong connection and try to reach the server?
It showed me to allow firewall to be disabled to get the access, I have tried that as well. Please help me on how to make this PC accessible from outside.
Thank you for the help in advance.
