I am attempting to create a storage node on another sub net across a wan. The servers are Debian 8. So far the installation seems to have gone well. The storage node install was configured via this article for multiple tftp servers. I also setup the locations plugin to split the sub nets so that the storage node and master have control of its own sub net. I can successfully image a client on the master network. I am having issues with the storage replication. When I check the Replication log on the master I see.

This leads me to believe that the ftp on the storage node is broken. I try and ftp to the storage node and this is what I get:
---- Connecting to 172.16.101.30 (172.16.101.30) port 21
<--- 421 Service not available.
---- Closing control socket
I can connect via ftp on the local host.
root@TMFog:/etc/init.d# lftp localhost -u fog
lftp fog@localhost:~> dir
drwxr-xr-x 2 1000 1000 4096 Jul 04 00:00 test
Really Stumped here.
there is a firewall in the mix but I disabled all the rules and then tried to ftp to the server from the firewall and got the same result. There are not any updates to the /va/log/messages log file for these connections, is it writing them somewhere else? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.
