You will need to give the PC that's hosting the FTP server a fixed IP address in your LAN (Local Area Network) and forward Port 21 in the router's settings to that IP address.

Unless you have a static IP address allocated by your ISP, you will also need to use a service such as "Dynamic DNS" click here to provide a URL that will work regardless of the changing IP addresses allocated by your ISP.

Hi, aswell as DynDNS you could also use your own domain (url) if you purchase one then you can set up namecheap as a free dns app.
