right here goes.
I love my WAG54g, its a god send and i no longer have cables trawling round my house.
However,

I have a friend who has given me access to her system accross the web using ftp, and I want to recipricate. I have windows 2000 professional (static ip), and set her up as a user, and given access to my drives. I have set up port range forwarding, allowing ports 20,21 and port 80. she should be able to access my system but cant. I have also turned on the DMZ, her Mac address is stored on my router and I have turned on DHCP to give her an IP when she comes through. What more can I do?

secondly i want to use the wag to stop certain phrases in webpages, they are set up in the firewall section but i can still search for teens' sex' etc etc it does not seem to have any effect. Help my kids use the net and I want to block this kinda stuff.


i have firmware 1.0.16

GOBADINE,

in what way do you want your friend to connect to your computer... ftp only for file transfers or Remote Desktop for full access to your Windows machine?

What FTP server are you using? Windows built in (IIS) or some other?

For ftp, the forwarding of port 20 and 21 to your computer (static local IP, 192.168.xxx.xxx) is correct.

Putting your computer in DMZ will forward ALL traffic to one single PC. In this case there is no need to forward ports 20 and 21 as ALL traffic is forwarded to that PC. If you put your computer in DMZ, make sure to install firewall (www.zonelabs.com).

The MAC address on your router is only for limiting WiFi connections to it. I doubt she is in range of it?

DHCP is only for computer on the local LAN. The DHCP server assigns IPs to computers connecting to it (the router) via local LAN. If you are using static ip on your computer and it is the only device you need to connect to the router then you don't need DHCP.

There is no way your friend can acquire an IP from your DHCP server

I have not used the "phrase blocking" feature on the router.

I hope this cleared up some of the concepts, depending on exactly how you want your friend to connect (ftp, web site, remote desktop, VPN and etc) there is a correct way of doing it!

I want my friend to be able to access my drive called “media” and allow her to upload or download files.

I have windows 2000 professional, with IIS installed but unsure if its working, and she is using an FTP program such as filezilla. I use the same program to access her pc “media” drive

my ISP gives me a dynamic ip address that changes if I disconnect, I try not to, and my main pc the one She requires access to, it has a static IP addresss.

Although I have others on the network at home with static ip addresses.
The linksys router is set to forward any port traffic to the main pc’s IP.

Zone alarm is installed for scurity.

I would just like friends to be able to get to my pc from the web using ftp, and upload or download if they wish to.

Any and all help is gratefully received.

And I have updated my firmware on the router to the most current version.

Try this link to Liksys' own help site

http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=587&p_created=1084217767&p_sid=1fznYmoh&p_lva=696&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MjAmcF9zZWFyY2hfdHlwZT1zZWFyY2hfbmwmcF9wcm9kX2x2bDE9MSZwX3Byb2RfbHZsMj0yMjMmcF9zY2ZfbGFuZz0xJnBfcGFnZT0x&p_li=

You need to register with http://www.dyndns.org/ to host a FTP server on a dynamic IP address Read and get confused - then drink too much - works for me !!

I always get there in the end

The latest beta firmmware still has dydns issues so you may need third party software
