I have tried to do this but appear not to have got the forwarding ip address right and when i try to set up the ftp virtual server i gte the warning that port 21 is in use and it tries to change it to port 2121

im assuming you are on xp

click start then run type cmd click ok you will get a black box com up type ipconfig this will show the ip adress do this on the machine you want to forward the port on

Many thanks for that i have done that but when i try to connect all i get is unable to connect this folder is read only and the proxy is wrong so i still cant connect. It is slightly frustrating as i cant see the folder i want over the net. I typ ftp followed by my ip address but get an ftp proxy warning
