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.

Ive tried forwarding port 21 to my IP but either i am doing it wrong or it just not working.....????!

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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
