For incoming FTP, forward port 21 to the FTP server... then choose which method of FTP you will allow; active or passive http://slacksite.com/other/ftp.html

For HTTP, forward port 80 to the HTTP server... if your server also does secure sites, forward port 443 (for SSL) as well.

Didn't forgot to make the new entry active?
Set the public and private port to 21 and configure the FTP server with the same port.
Worked for me.

First of all if you haven't already, try accessing the FTP server from another computer inside your network if possible, to make sure there isn't a problem with the FTP server and not the router.
If that checks out OK, verify your computer's IP address by going to Start->Run..., type "cmd" then "ipconfig".  Make sure that IP address matches the IP you specified in the router's forwarding table.  You may want to configure your computer to have a static IP address instead of DHCP if you plan to forward ports to it.  If the computer is always on its IP should stay the same under DHCP, but better safe than sorry.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I'm a bit confused about the 68.... ip part for the CS server.  On my router, (It's a Linksys WRT54G), the router address is 192.168.1.1 and my computer's address is 192.168.1.10.  The first three numbers in the address should always be the same thing... which happens automatically if you're using DHCP.  As long as the IP's match correctly, and you choose to forward TCP traffic on the port (or both TCP and UDP) then it should work fine.  What FTP software are you using?  Check to make sure that your FTP software is set up to use the correct IP address. I think some software lets you change the IP it's using.  Also make sure that the FTP port in the software is set to 80.

Did you verify what your external IP address is, such as by going to www.myipaddress.com?  You probably already know this, but you need that external address if you're connecting from outside your network... don't use the internal address you see from running ipconfig.  Is the 68... address really your external internet IP?  Under my setup, assuming my address from www.ipaddress.com was 65.55.112.123, the connection from outside would be as follows:

INTERNET -->  65.55.112.123 --> Your Router --> 192.168.1.10 --> Your Computer

I would type the 65... address in a remote web browser, and the port forwarding on my router would forward the traffic to the 192... address, which is my computer.

Sorry if that's not what you are looking for... I can't think of anything else to try at the moment.
