  1. Hello i want some help about setting up my ftp server. First of all i've already installed all useful programms (NO-IP, BulletProof server and SmartFTP) and i've made 2 accounts for them (NO-IP, BulletProof server). The problem is when im going to connect with the server from SmartFTP the connection always fails. i put normaly the host name and the username-password in SmartFTP that i took from NO-IP. I think that something going wrong with the BulletProof Server. if anyone knows how i can fix it i would apreciate to help me soon. thank you!!!!!

    Telnet and FTP are security risks, but I'll defer that for now.

    look at all the routing info
    your isp gateway (some public ip address)
             + the ISP assigned public address of your modem/router
             + the router's LAN address
             + your system's LAN address
    access to your system (regardless of which specific service)
    1. your public modem/router address
    2. a port forward to the system's LAN address
    3. your system's firewall to allow incoming traffic on the required port
    4. and usually an ID+Password to login
    the ISP assigned public address of your modem/router is not associated with any DNS,
    so you can not be accessed by NAME unless you register with

    SO --- how much of that have you completed?
