    I just set up an ftp site through my computer. I have a cable connection and a router. My internet service does not provide static ips so I used It works fine and all. Then I was our browsing the web and that is a common address. Just wondering how it works and is it safe to do?

    You're behind a router. That is your internal private IP. You need to forward ports 21, and a passive ranfge in the router's config to your private IP. Then set the FTP server to use the passive port range you set in the router, and have it masquarade as the external IP of the router.

    If you use FTP Serv-U check here:
