This is my first post on these forums, and I have to say so far I have loved the sites - especially the walkthroughs. I am pursuing a CS degree from Tufts and cannot wait to get started participating in this forum. Anyway, here is my question:
I set up a server (Win 7, Apache 2.2, PHP5, MySql, Filezilla FTP Srvr) and registered a domain name. After wrestling with it for a while, I finally got everything configured with DNS and the whole 9 yards so that Apache is servicing my domain www.mydomainname.com and serving my Wordpress blog.
Here is the caveat:
The only way to access the FTP server is through the domain name now... Lets say my IP is 22.214.171.124, If I go to ftp://126.96.36.199 the page times out. However, if I go to ftp://mydomainname.com, it connects just fine.
How would I go about it so that my FTP server can respond to requests from the external IP, and not just through requests by domain name?
