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

Does anyone have any idea what im doing wrong?

Why use windows when you can use doors?

You may need to setup your router to forward WAN requests on ports 20 and 21 to your FTP machine.

I tried that before and it didnt seem to help, my server is also on a DMZ so i shouldnt need to do that. Thanks for trying tho.

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 192.168.0.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 address.
