I recently set up an FTP server on my network, so I could download my files from my work. The problem is that the FTP server works fine on my local network, but won't work at all over the internet. (Ex, ftp://192.168.0.39 will work, but ftp://71.209.52.*** or 71.209.52.*** won't work, it only takes me to my modem's config page). Is my modem not compatible, my configuration screwed up, or am I just being a retard?

FTP Server Program: Serv-U Personal
OS: Windows XP Pro

Have you forwarded the FTP ports (in your router) so that the FTP traffic will be directed to your systems?

http://portforward.com/routers.htm

Just select your router, then select FTP and it'll walk you through the configuration. You may have to do this on both routers - but I'm not entirely sure about that.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

No you only have to open the ports that is hosting the FTP site.

Umm..whaaa? Ports do not host anything, so I am not sure what you mean.. The correct port has to be forwarded from the router, otherwise the router firewall will just drop it. This is of course assuming that madman6510 even has a router. I am assuming that the firewall on the host system are already open, otherwise you wouldn't be able to use FTP on the lan. Does your ISP allow for FTP hosting? They may have that port blocked. A little more information about the setup would do a world of good, such as type of modem, or whether it is a combination modem/router, etc.
