n00b question about personal FTP


Recommended Posts

ok i recently downloaded a free copy of Cerberus FTP Server so i can transfer/share files between my laptop and my desktop PC, it works fine, the setup was straightfoward, my ftp address is my internal ip with the ftp:// in the front of it. i could access the files smoothly, create users, restricts connections  and stuff.. but when i wanna share my ftp address with my friend, he couldnt connect to me.. he keeps getting "unable to connect", why is that? i really dont know much about stuff like this, could someone enlighten me?
