I created a FTP server and want people from outside the company to be able to access it. Problem is that I don't know what IP or changes to make for it to work. Here is my breakdown.
Installed Windows server 2008 R2 and IIS7. Created an FTP website with IP address of 10.5.6.64 (Static IP for internal network) and server name VANSYSTEMS. I'm able to FTP to the website via IE with FTP://vansystems or FTP://10.5.6.64
However, from outside, this does not work, as it does not know about our internal IP ranges etc. I asked our Firewall guys to route all FTP traffic from our external IP address that is 126.96.36.199 to this IP address 10.5.6.64. They done that, but I still cannot get to this website. I think I may also type the address wrong maybe. They said I must use my internal IP address, but that does not work, and cannot see that being true. I must have some route to me domain name that is vanchem.co.za. So my thoughts of the address should be like FTP://10.5.6.64.vanchem.co.za or maybe FTP://vansystems.vanchem.co.za
Either way, none of it works and does not find the FTP website.
