Configure Windows Server to be accessible externally

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Hi all

Thanks for reading. Firstly, i'm not very good with networking at all so please bear with me.

OK, i have a server running Windows Server 2003, It runs our DHCP and is used mostly as a file share server, however i want to set up an external FTP site on it. it has been given an External IP address, however i cannot access it externally.

I dont even know where to begin to look.

Could someone talk me through setting my server up to do this please or point me in the direction of a useful online resource
