Accessing an internal ftp server over the web.
Posted: Tue Sep 27, 2005 4:55 am
Ok I have a ftp server set up with an internal ip address of 192.168.1.103; I know what my external ip address is, that is the one that my router accepts, coming from the cable modem...My question is, how do I access the ftp server from a remote computer, not on my local network?

You need to map port 21 on your routers wan port (the bit that plugs in to the wall) to your computers ip address on the lan side (192.168.1.103) it will be in your routers manual under something like ‘virtual servers’ or something.

I've also seen it called "Port Forwarding", "Special Applications", "Remote Sites" and a few other terms. There's a good site http://www.portforward.com
that lists a ton of routers and how to configure them for various services.
