    I've been searching like crazy for an answer but couldn't find/understand one.

    Here is the issue:
    i have set up an FTP server on my Home NAS, it all works great locally from any browser (using default ftp client browser has).
    i try to access it from outside my house from a browser or windows CMD i get a "530 User <username> cannot log in".
    BUT here is the weird part when i used the online client www.net2ftp.com it worked.

    to save time i will write down all the things i already did:
    1) i port forwarded almost all ports (just to be sure)[start:19,end:65534]
    2) i have restart every device i have, including the ftp server.
    3) i left it on default port 21.
    4) i don't know if this is useful but i think the FTPserver the NAS is using is

    Thank you in advance !!!
