More about : obtain ftp address SizroSpunkmire October 5, 2008 10:36:27 PM Depends on wether you want to use a URL or not. Lets assume your IP address is: 18.104.22.168 You would setup portforwarding on your router to push all FTP traffic on port 21 to the internal IP of your FTP server (most likely 192.168.1.*). Open up any web browser, type in: ftp://22.214.171.124 Assuming its been done correctly and you have no sucrity enabled, you should see the directory contents of your server If you want to use a URL, first you need to register a domain name. Then you need to change the DNS address of the domain to your IP. ie: you register www.myawesomesite.com and set the IP address to 126.96.36.199. This way, anyone in the world who browses so ftp://www.myawesomesite.com will see the files in your FTP server directory. Edit* LOL turns out those are actual sites and the person has a protected FTP server. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
