    If you want to run an FTP server, this is how you do it:

    In the router:
    - Forward port 21 to your computer on TCP.
    - Forward range of ports (like 10001-10100) to your computer on TCP. This is you PASV range.

    In the server:
    - Set the server to listen to port 21 (usually default).
    - Set the server to use the ports above (10001-10100) for PASV (passive) connections.
    - Set the server to listen to the IP that is your external IP.

    That's it! :)

    You may not be able to connect from the inside of the network though, unless you connect to the external IP!
