I am using file zilla server and i am connected to a LAN (Netgear router) and i want to connect to my computer from out side my LAN? I heard i have to do this using the passivemode settings. Can anyone help me with this or recommend a decent FTP server which is layed out better?

Thanks for reading

You need to forward port 21 to the FTP server's IP address via the router's virtual server configuration.

some ISP's will not allow you to set up a server unless you buy the business package, i know charter communication does this, so even after forwarding the port it still may not work
