have you checked if they have, it would seem strange for an ISP to do 
something so
fundamental without communicating the fact?


#1 "Shields up" would probe the ports that were open on your router if you 
run it remotely
AND show what is blocked?

#2 did this stop after a software update or install of anything else?

#3 look at the error log in WSFTP (hit the LOG_WND button)

not a 714P+? that is another model and another manual (this one is pretty poor)

#4 Check the "intruder detection log" for evidence of your own activities 
in "getting through"
this will show if the internal router firewall has taken a dislike to you 
trying to get in :)

if your failed attempts do not show up assume they are blocked upstream?

#5 you might set the server to be inside the DMZ temporarily (not for long 
as it will be open to anyone)
and try again, that would tell you if the firewall in the router was 
blocking it
