    So I'm using Filezilla Server to host some directories on my computer so a couple people on the network can grab files as a directory listing.. Windows networking is being gay, and sucks anyways, so I'd rather just do this.. not just for now, but for in the future.

    The server settings are: hosting on 127.0.0.1, so doesn't that mean in order to logon to the server I've got running, all they'd have to do is type in my local IP, i.e., 192.168.1.101 ?

    Is there anything I'm overlooking or just doing wrong? I've done this before in the past, so I don't understand what the deal is :confused:

    that should work, you might have to allow an exception in your firewall rules though

    Try a different port. ISPs often block port 80 and 21. (http, and ftp ports). This means, anyone who is trying to get to you will need to specify the port in the IP you give them. 24.x.x.x:999, etc.. You will need to use a diff port, then forwared it through your router as mentioned above.

    Have you checked to make sure you can log into the FTP on the same machine using 127.0.0.1 first?

    You haven't provided any error messages or described exactly what's wrong.

    hrm.. still doesn't work, but I don't see why that'd be necessary if my goal is to exclusively use the ftp host on my local network

    Yes, it works using 127.0.0.1 and 192.168.1.101 :confused:

    EDIT - on MY computer.. the other ones still are unable to access the server.

    As far as error messages go, what's happening on the other computers is that they

    "establish connection.. waiting for welcome message"

    so.. I know they are connecting, and that the server is up.. I don't know why either of the 2 computers will connect to it though :ugh2:

    Try connecting using the command-line FTP client, and see how far you can get, whether you can get a file listing that way

    can you telnet to your box from another machine into Port 21?

    have you tried a different FTP server?

    tried a different listnening port on the server?
