    FTP Server Problem


    I've been trying to set up an FTP and HTML server on my XP Pro machine that'll run on the internet. I'm using one of those dynamic IP address clients to allow myself to have a domain name, and after some experimenting, I got my apache web server up on the internet.
    Now I'm trying to set up my FTP server and I'm having problems. I'm using war-ftp and I can get it to work on my LAN, but it won't go past my router. I opened up my router's port 21 and even tried different ports in case my ISP was blocking port 21, but it just won't work on the internet. Does anyone know how I could solve this problem?

    try to setup your client to use "passive transfers". this should solve the problem.
