Im trying to set up an ftp server using win2k professional and IIS so i can transfer files between college and home easily. The problem is that even though i seem to be doing everything correctly (the ftp site works perfectly on my network) when i try and access the site via the internet I just get a server not found error message.
I have a static ip address and im using a netgear DG814 router and I have put the ftp server on a DMZ with IP address 192.168.0.40.
Ok, putting it in the DMZ was a good idea.
Your router will pick up the ISP's DHCP ip address, but you have assigned your Router a LAN ip address. Default it is 192.168.1.1.. 192.168.0.x is a different subnet which would make it not work. Double check your ip address scheme, in the worst case change that 0 to a 1 and reassign all of your ip addresses. Double check your PC with the FTP server on it and make sure you have it set up statically with the 192.168.0.40 address.
