  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
    Code:
    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)
    requires
    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 DynDNS.org

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