FTP Problem... trying to ftp into my server

Total Noob here...

I have started my first web server...


I am using DynDNS to follow the Dynamic DNS... I also have a phone router and wireless router in line and have had to forward port 8080 to port 80 of my server.

I just tried port forwarding 21 through my phone router>through my wireless router> to my werver IP but am getting nothing...

Does your FTP server have a software firewall installed?  You will need to open port 21 on that, as well.
Have you tried connecting to your FTP server while inside the same network, so you aren't going through any of your routers?

That link you have posted does not work for me:  http://rubantin.gotdns.com:8080/

This makes me think you have a software firewall in place on the FTP server.  Check that first and let me know.
