making an FTP server and need help
I am trying to make an FTP server out of an old linux box. That computer is behind a modem, a hub, then an Asante router. Someone told me to ask about port forwarding...
I am a complete noob please remember that...
email me at VirtualSickness@gmail.com
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)
