FTP Server Software

Recommended Posts

Im setting up a server thats located on a machine in my house. And i set up FTP Software on the local machine. But it will only work with the local router IP (, but i want to be able to access it remotely using the static IP. How would i go about doing this?

Thanks, Matrix :)

I did not really understand your point.

From what I could understand, you want to setup a FTP Server, and be able to access using the Internet as a middle man, right?

For that, you need to install some FTP Server Software (Filezilla for example), and do a port forwarding on your router.

Port 21 TCP to the IP address of your FTP Server.

Im sorry if this isnt what you want.

As Gouki said, you have to do a port forwarding on your router.

So all connections from Internet to your router with port 21 TCP will go on your FP Server.

Having a static IP is not free, but you can have a domain name as matrix9098.dynalias.com for free.

Go to www.dyndns.org to get it.

With this domain name and a small software which will automatically updates your domain name with your IP, you will able to connect to your FTP server.
