This is my issue:
I have Optimumonline cable modem. I would like to have a FTP server on my Windows XP PRO machine for my personal use, I went to dyndns.org and got myself an account which is all setup and functional. I am using a linksys WRT54GS routher which has port 29001 enable for FTP. By the way, optimumonline would not allow transmission on FTP default port 21. Router is configured to port forward to the PC which is running FTP. My public IP Address was verified by going to www.ipchicken.com
I installed SERV-U FTP server and created the FTP domain which went very smooth. After installation, I connected to the FTP server locally via FTP client which was success. So all seem good and fly but here are issues:
If I go to my other location or friends house and try to ping my Public Ip address, I get nowhere. ERROR("HOST UNREACHABLE"). I cannot ping the IP Address at all.
I have setup my router for remote administration at port:8080. So when I type in my public address assigned by my cable provider (27.233.xxx.xx:8080), browser times out.
I am able to ping the router locally. I have not enabled my router to block http pings so I should be able to ping the router or connect over http.
