    Tolomir, if I am using a broadband router, how can I access the FTP site remotely since the fake ip will be delivered from my broadband router. Thanks.

    Accepted Solution

    you need an dyndns entry.

    Also pay attention to:

    3.6. Firewalls

    3.6.1. I have War FTP Daemon on a network. Can it use the routers IP address for PASV connections?

    Yes. From version 1.81, War FTP Daemon supports advanced NAT (Network Adress Translation) options. See the nat.conf.template file supplied with the server. If this file is renamed to nat.conf, the server will read the rules in the file during startup.
