ftp access private IP

By a63fulie ·
Is there a way to access my server Windows 2000 w/SP3 192.168.x.x from the internet. I am on DSL connection with a Linksys router. Looking to transfer files from another computer in remote area.
Thanks

On your linksys router, there is an advanced setting for redirecting outside requests to a specific computer. You will need to open port 21, and point it to the 192.168.xxx.xxx address of the computer you want to access.

I am assuming that youhave the FTP service installed on the computer. You must do this.

Once this has been done, you should be able to access the server's ftp folders from the outside. The url will be like ftp.<public_ipaddress>

That should give you the access you desire.

Sorry, the correct URL would be.....

ftp://<public_IPaddress>
