i use BulletProof FTP Server on my server at home which let's me ftp in with BulletProof FTP Client, although you can use any FTP client to access server files, from my girlfriend's house, fully configurable and stable under load...

I think i know where i have gone wrong we didnt add a client but then do i have to configure my netgear router or just leave it.

I think you would set the server and client if using FTP to use "passive mode". you may have to setup port forwarding on the router...

click here or click here for a guide on setting up port forwarding. It uses Serve-U FTP server but is generally the same in all FTP server setups...

You could also try a web based app like www file share pro click here not free but worth running a trial to experiment...
