    It is better to answer a question on the forums, so everyone can see the answer.

    Port forwarding is when your router forwords all data sent to a specific port on your routers IP to another port on a local computer.

    For an ftp server, you will need atleast port 21 (both UDP and TCP).

    You will need to configure your router for this, most routers offer a web interface, to find your routers IP address, you can run a traceroute, read your routers manual, or try some of these common IP's (just type the IP into a web browser to access the configuration interface)
