    Hi there!

    I just set up a Serv-U FTP server. However; I am having difficulties connecting.

    Here is the deal:

    If I ask my computer what it's IP adress is; it tells me 192.168.1.100 as the local IP adress. The real thing; however; is most likely 24.193.35.23

    Now; if I enter the adress on the FTP server; as being 192.168.1.100, I will be able to connect to myself via cute FTP; however; other people seem to be unable to. If I put my adress as 24.193.35.23, in the FTP server settings; and in cute FTP; it will not connect. The port I am running on is 21.

    I'v been told to DMZ; but I don't want to do that; at all. I want my firewall.

    My router is a Linksys BEFSR41.

    http://192.168.1.1/

    That's the router set up page. Now if I go to advanced; and fowarding; I'm stuck there; I don't know what to put into the fields. Would someone please explain to me how this works; and help me?

    Thanks a LOT;

    Nick

    Yes, that's right.

    When you give out your FTP IP to others, tell them 24.193.35.23

    Try enabling DMZ and see if that works.

    I have G6 (BulletProof) FTP server set up at home behind my Linux router. I have port 21 forwarded to my internal IP (192.168.1.101 in my case). It works flawlessly except if the client is also behind a router.

    I can't connect to your IP btw. You may have to restart the router if you are unlucky.

    Zedric; that did it.

    Resetting my router. Why didn't I think of that?!

    Now all works fine.
