Windows 2000 LAN / WAN

By Michael34 ·
Ok I need some help here. I have a Linksys Cable/ DSL router. I am trying use FTP to share some files. Now I have 2 IP Addresses A LAN and WAN. When I setup a FTP server (Usually download free ones off Cnet), it says the host is 192.168.1.102 which is my LAN IP not WAN. How could people access my files on my PC through the internet? I use Cable Internet Access. Is there an easer way to do this?

You need to go into the Advanced properties of your Linksys router to forwarding. put in port 21 to port 21 to IP address of the 192.168.1.xx of the PC that has your FTP server. When someone FTP's to your Cable IP address, your router will forward FTP port 21 to your server. External network users will only know, and only need to know your cable IP Address
