Turning PC into FTP even though connected via wireless router


My PC is connected to the internet via a Linksys Wireless router.  I was wondering how I can set up an FTP server just on my PC so I can access my files on the fly.

I have Win XP Home SP2

If you have your Golden FTP set up you only need to add port forwarding on your Router for FTP services. See this link for details for the WRT54G:

If you want to use the built in XP FTP service have a look at these:

No you have to follow the instructions and change the firewall, and enter the necessary port forward details , and your FTP server must be configured properly.
