You need to use your public ip address your internal machine ip will only work on your office's network. Install ftp via windows add remove programs then go in your router and port foward port 21 to the computer's internal ip address. Then on your home computer ftp to your offices public ip address your router in the office will now forward the traffic to that computer


Hi freshfitz, sorry for the late reply..what you mean for the public ip address? i'm behind a linksys router so i need to use the ip address of this router or what?

i used the command prompt to ftp but it says "connection closed by remote host"
