Pure FTP connectivity Problems, Sus 9.3, and Router


I'm running Suse 9.3 pro on my desktop system and am trying to setup up an FTP server. However I have a few complications, among them is the fact that I now have a router, a LinkSys wireless 54MB G router, which I need to navigate through, and a non-static IP. The non-static IP I can deal with as I'll only use the FTP server when away for several days and the IP address won't change so long as the computer is on. The router, however, I'm not sure how to get through, and need help in general wth Pure FTP. I've got the ports as 20-21 right now, which ZoneAlarm Home on my laptop doesn't allow communication through. Any help would be welcomed.

I don't think a Linux forum is the best place to ask questions about a Windows firewall.. Nonetheless, if you can figure out how to allow ports in on the Windows machine, you should add 20 and 21 to the allowed ports list. Port 20 isn't that necessary, but it couldn't possibly hurt.

Maybe you should try a ZoneAlarm forum?

Youre on the right track...

Just open 21 from the outside to the IP of your FTP server and you should be golden. This can be done in the Applications and Gaming section.

The dynamic IP thing can be fixed with a dynamic DNS service like Dyndns.org or no-ip.org.

I'll have to check out Dyndns.org and no-ip.org. Never heard of them before but I'll investigate.
