Keep in mind that FTP is a multi port protocol. Even if you have forwarded tcp 21 on the router, it is not enough to transfer files.
If SSH is working fine, I think the easiest for you would be to install openssh-sftp and use that for file transfer. On the plus side you'll get the encryption, which FTP doesn't have. But on the other hand you need to make sure that SSH is properly hardened (no root login, no password authentication, setup ssh keys, non standard port, maybe port knocking).

that's why I would recommend to use VPN to connect. This will enable you to access all applications at home, without limitations and secured.

Sorry about the delay. Over the last week, somehow I got SMB to work when trying to reinstall the application once more, but the communication is excrutiatingly slow. I'm starting to suspect these issues are related to the ISP router limitations.

Hi. I set up wireguard and nothing changed. After fumbling around, I tried setting up an omv and everything works fine (except docker can't handle network volumes), so the problem must be something I messed up. I'll just scrub the whole thing and start over.
