    Hello,

    I have a Mac Mini Server running PureFTPd Manager through a linksys router hooked up to our Comcast Business modem. I've managed to create an FTP which our clients can access offsite, but when I try to connect in the office I always time out. I believe this must be because I am accessing the FTP from the same IP address. Is there anyway around this, so that I may access the FTP from my office. Thanks.

    For local access you'll have to use the local IP (the IP address of your machine within the office network) rather than the external IP.
