    you should be able to open the port on the router that you want people to download from, enable port forwarding to a specified port on your computer and do it that way.

    When you said you forwarded it to your IP, you did mean the (probably private) IP of the PC with the server running, and not the IP as seen on the internet?

    u should forward port 20 and 21 to the ip of the machine u have serv-u on. not the IP from your isp, but the private your router gives u.

    if u r unsure what it is, go to start, run, and type "cmd" with no quotes.
    at the command prompt type "ipconfig" again with no quotes. it *should* give u the private ip of your machine
