I've installed FileZilla FTP Server on my local PC (runs Win XP SP3). The PC is ethernet wired directly to a D-Link DIR-655 router.
I have no problems connecting out to various FTP sites but am trying to set up an FTP server.
Outside remote computers are unable right now to ping my PC using the router's IP address (for example the IP address returned if I go to www.whatismyip.com
I can ping my router from inside the LAN.
If this was a Windows Firewall problem, presumably Windows Firewall would prevent access (if this was a firewall problem) only to my PC but the router should still ping back? In any case, outside PCs still can't ping my router after I've disabled Windows Firewall as well as the anti-virus running (not that I expected that to make a difference to the router).
I'm guessing this could be a number of issues likely related to some incorrect or incomplete config settings or possibly AV (I used AVAST home).
Not sure what my next move is here to get this working.
