    Quite simple actually. I assume you mean the traditional ftp and not the tftp (trivial file transfer protocol). All you do is open up port 23 and run your ftp software, it helps if you have a static and not a dynamic ip address but you can run one either way. Dont forget to configure your ftp program like the directories, permissions, and anonymous access if you desire it.

    dude, that "detailed guide" is like saying:

    Download an mp3:

    buy a set of pc bits
    put em together
    install software
    run kazaa
    download

    Lol I agree that that wasnt very detalied, as I dun know how to open ports

    I use Serv-U 4 to create my FTP server, and did all what is described in the link at the start.

    Anyways, my friend tries to connect to my FTP and gets this:
    Resolving host name 194.69.211.208...
    Connecting to (194.69.211.208) -> IP: 194.69.211.208
    PORT: 21
    Unknown error.
    Cannot login waiting to retry (30s)...

    Can this error be that we are using the wrong port?
    Does changing it to 80 help?
    If not, what is another poss solution?

    PS: Yes I do feel safe havin the IP there, cos I dun have child porn, and if any of you want my stuff, you dun have to hack me, PM me and I give you FTP when it is done (plus I have firewall )

    *bump*

    Me and exeus have resolved some of the prob. We now know that it is not a wrong setup that keeps my comp from accepting FTP transfers.

    Now I want to know: Is it possible for there to be anything on the comp (not Firewall, neither software, or implemented in XP) that can stop an FTP?

    Some ports can not be changed. Webserver ports can be changed to whatever you like 80, 8080 or any unused port but 80 is the default.

    When it comes to ftp. That port 23 is used exactly for file transfer protocol and you generally cant change the port or if you do it wont work well at all.

    Stick with the default ports and to be quite honest if you dont know what your doing I would suggest you leave it alone until you have enough time on your hands to read the documentation regarding the ftp server software as well as ftp protocol in general.

    Strangely enough my description of ftp posted earlier would only be considered vague to someone who does not desire to use their common sense. People cant hold your hand 100% through the way. Its best to appreciate what little info you get from someone regarding a particular question of yours and assess that to the information you learn on your own. If someone gave you step by step by step instructions you would probably use those to get the solution to your problem for the time being only and then once you need to do it agin you would have forgotten because you just used someone else&#39;s expertise and not your own.
