FTP Server behind a router

By jostrowsky ·
Greetings,

This may be easy, but I have tried for hours and cannot figure out my problem. I'm trying to get a FTP Server set up via Windows 2000 Pro and I am behind a simple Belkin Router. I cannot get it to work. Any ideas? I'm offering manypoints :)

Have you registered your static IP as a DNS server and open port 21 for FTP and 53 for DNS on your firewall?

That didn't help. I am using Windows 2000 Pro. Can't I use the FTP option with Windows 2000 Pro and become a FTP server, or will I need Windows Server? Again, this is all behind a 4-port Cable / DSL Gateway Router by Belkin. Any help?

In Windows 2000 Pro one can add The IIS server which includes a FTP sevice. Shouldn't I be able to configure this FTP service so that others from the internet can download files from my intranet? Thanks!

Windows 2000 Pro will allow 10 concurrent conections, so it will work well for a low volume ftp sever. I am not familiar with the Belkin, however you should be able to use a port forwarding feature to forward incoming port 21 to the IP address of your win2kpro box running FTP

It looks like you should be able to configure it under you security/virtual server settings from within your router

The router doesn't have a security/virtual server setting. It does have a setting called DMZ which puts the client with the FTP sever on the outside of the router/proxy.

This may not be a complete solution, however... you may have to setup the FTP server in the DMZ of the Router.. So the real IP of the server can access to the Internet for request's

This sounds close but confusing. You say to setup the FTP Server in the DMZ. I guessing you mean the intranet ip of that client. I have done that and I'm still not able to get anything.

I am able to ping my outside IP address, but notthe FTP Server in my network using that IP address.

If my IP was 192.168.1.2 and my sever name was Sprint, should I be able to get to it by typing ftp://192.168.1.2/Sprint in the browser?
