Ok.. Before any of you read anymore, I did in fact hit the Search Button and search before I posted here. Infact I even Googled, but I couldn't find it + I had a sinus headache so I was feeling like poo.
Anyway....on to the story...Once upon a time...
My router/gateway is a Linksys WRT54G(Firmware v2.04.3) that is hooked directly to a windows XP machine. I have a laptop with Mandrake Linux 10.0, and thats where my FTP is.
your laptop's IP is private and thus will never show up on the public network, since it' is not routable. The portscan must be done to the public address of your router. If your ISP supports active FTP and your router is properly setup then ports 20 and 21 will appear open.
