    i have a broadband connection with dynamic IP
    what i want to do is to have my computer as an ftp server which people can upload/download to.

    Now i registered at dyndns.org and was going to set it up. Then i hear that since my ISP is having a firewall up blocking stuff like me receiving files on ICQ, I cant do this!

    is there a way to do this at all? cause i really want a server of my own for file sharing,gaming and stuff like that.

    Either consult your ISP over the phone as xxbigeyedfishxx suggested, or perhaps see if they have an FAQ on site.

    If this is no good then you could just set up the ftp and get someone to try login to it... good ol' trial and error :)
