Default Odd FTP issue

Hi all,

I'm having an issue with FTPing into my server.

If I type my internal IP address in (192.168.x.x), then everything works normally, I can connect and update my site, etc.

If I go through the "front door" from outside my network by either the IP or the URL (, then I get the following:

Status:	Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Response:	220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [privsep] [TLS] ----------
Response:	220-You are user number 1 of 50 allowed.
Response:	220-Local time is now 12:32. Server port: 21.

Status:	Server sent passive reply with unroutable address. Using server address instead.
Command:	MLSD

So, my question is, does anyone know how I can FTP into my site through the URL or IP instead of the internal IP?
