Hi, i do have a Linksys ISR, windows 2003 enterprise edition and a Public IP address. I would like to setup an FTp site on the windows 2003 pc using my public IP. I successfully managed to do it over the LAN and both downloads and uploads are fine however when it comes to setting it up over the Internet i terribly misfire. I do not have any experience in setting up a public IP and i do not know how to configure it on the machine so that it's accessible over the internet. any help will be more than appreciated.

You should have some type of firewall providing the address translation (read this as: do NOT put the public IP on your server). The firewall should only permit FTP to/from this server. The server should be hardened and all non-essential services stopped or uninstalled. Here’s a general ftp server setup <a href=”http://lifehacker.com/software/home-server/how-to-set-up-a-home-ftp-server-130806.php”>tutorial</a>. You can find more examples by doing a Google search for “ftp server setup tutorial”
