Could someone please explain in simple steps what i have to do to set this up?

Is your DSL router doing the NAT for all packets going out of the network ? What router is it ? Is it Cisco ? You need to enable a static mapping for your ftp server on the DSL router.

Re: Port forwarding on a 1605R

My ADSL modem/router at the moment is doing NAT. Its a dynalink RTA100. My ADSL modem/router can not forward to diff. subnets, so that is why i want to use a my cisco router.

I'm guess i have a port forward the ADSL modem to the cisco router, then from the cisco router to my ftp server.

So forward port 1111 (ftp port) from them ADSL modem/router ( to my cisco router ( = eth0), then the cisco router needs to forward to = eth1, then from eth1 to my ftp server (
