There's two things you have to do to your router to enable access to a service on a machine inside:
  • Open the appropriate port on your firewall (for FTP, usually 21).
  • Forward that port to the IP address of your FTP server.

Have you done both of those?

What's the external IP address of your ftp server? I'll check from here and make sure the port is actually open.
