can connect to my ftp from any computer EXCEPT my own
whats going on?
connecting to localhost:21or 192.168.1.101:21 works, but when i type in my external ip i get this error/disconnect:
Looking up [my external ip adress]
Trying [my external ip adress]]:21

although using localhost works fine, i would like to be able to connect to my ftp from my computer using my external ip to test some security features i am trying. anyone know how i could do this?
