Setting up a public FTP server on a tricky LAN
Posted on 2006-05-14
I want to set up an FTP server on my computer, but my network set up makes it really tricky.
Here's my setup:
Comcast 16/1Mb Internet
WRT54GL running DDWRT firmware as my router.
WRT54G also running DDWRT firmware as a client, connected via ethernet cable to my computer, and via the wireless network to the internet.
The 54GL's IP is 192.168.1.1. The 54G's IP's are 192.168.1.2 on the LAN and 192.168.2.1 and 192.168.1.2 on LAN. My Computer's IP is 192.168.2.100, with the gateway being 192.168.2.1.
I was thinking I would run a dynamic DNS program like No-IP so that I could just give out a web address that people could connect to, but that just resolves to my main public IP.
How do I go about forwarding the requests for FTP access from the internets, to my computer?
