FTP Server with DSL

I have recently got DSL installed at my house and have a dillema.  I run an ftp server, but now with the router, trafic gets to my Ip address to the router and then does not know what to do.  I need a way for the Ip address to get to my server so that I can run ftp.  I am using a Cisco 675 router.  How do I do this?

So you only have 1 IP address and it is assigned to your router? Can you configure the router to send all traffic to one machine (your FTP box) first? (I had to do this when I was on ISDN with a similar setup)

Could you be a bit ore specific about how your systems are set up? Do you have static IPs? DHCP? how is the FTP server setup under network settings for TCP/IP?
Did you configure the router or did it come preconfigured?
also as an FYI you might want to take a look here

I am would like to run DHCP on my home network.  My isp is using DHCP to me.  What I need is for the router to act as though it were a dial up connection.  By this I mean that when connected, it gives one nic on my server the Ip address from the ISP and the other nic will be static.  That way I can tell my FTP server to use the Ip address from the nic comming from the router.

Sounds like you should turn on NAT to pass requests on the FTP port of your dynamically assigned IP thru to your internal machine.  Let me know if this works, I'm considering hooking my web server up this way!
