Serving files to the public

Yeah; I need another tutorial I want to set up an FTP server on my laptop (running Mandrake 8.1). I'm on a cable connection running through a router, if that's relevant. I don't know the names of any FTP servers, and I want something, if possible, where the user can always FTP into the same dotted-decimal address.

A friend of mine is running something like that--He's got cable, and I always FTP into the same address, as long as he's got his FTP server turned on. Problem is, his FTP server is running Windows XP, and I want to run mine in Mandrake.

well, if you are behind a router, you may have to do some port-forwarding to forward ftp requests to the ip that you want. you also need to give your ftp server a static ip, so that it doen't change. and you need to run an ftp server. i would suggest proftp (it may come with mdk)

what type of router are you using?
