Noob here. I've tried talking on Filezilla forum but they aren't too noob friendly. Keep referring me to http://wiki.filezilla-project.org/Network_Configuration.. That would be fine if I understood. The problem I'm running into is that I can't access my server from any PC outside my house. Keep getting something that looks like this:
15:11:47 Status: Connecting to 83.254.xxx.xxx:55755...
15:12:08 Error: Connection timed out
15:12:08 Error: Could not connect to server
15:12:08 Status: Waiting to retry...
15:12:13 Status: Connecting to 83.254.xxx.xxx:55755...
15:12:34 Status: Connection attempt failed with "ETIMEDOUT - Connection attempt timed out".
15:12:34 Error: Could not connect to server
15:12:34 Status: Waiting to retry...
15:12:39 Status: Connecting to 83.254.xxx.xxx:55755...
15:13:00 Status: Connection attempt failed with "ETIMEDOUT - Connection attempt timed out".
15:13:00 Error: Could not connect to server

Just looking for a little help and clarification. Thanks

I would recommend portforward.com – a FREE resource on all port-forwarding issues. You will need to learn how to connect your FTP server to the internet using ports. This information that you can learn about how to connect your FTP server to the internet also applies to other types of server software, P2P software, and also online game software.

firewall/security suite needs to allow the program/port to accept incoming connections

your router needs to port forward to your pc

http://wiki.filezilla-project.org/Network_Configuration looks like a good source, but its information overload if your new to what needs to be done

portforward.com is good too, quite a bit simpilar
