    OK, but what is you problem exactly?

    My ISP will allow me to run an FTP server on port 21, and will forward any incoming requests in the normal manner... nice and simple.

    >its a FTP server for me and my friend only
    Yeah, and anyone else that scans/finds your server. Be careful to ensure you password it well and ensure it's patched properly... Remember, security cannot be based on ignorance (ie, assuming no-one knows your address is not a good defence).
    When all else fails, read the instructions.

    >> you have to tell your router to allow connections in and out along port 21

    And port 20 for proper authentication

    Authentication is done on 21 (Control Port), data is sent on 20 (Data port).

    That's a maybe, but how are you controling the data port? Most of the FTP clients I've seen don't allow for anything other than port 20..... go on, prove me wrong
