Default FTP Question

Hi all

Not certain if this applies to this forum but I was wondering if it is possible to run a FTP server alongside my main computer and access said FTP with the http://localhost. I have installed IIS.

The reason is that at college we are creating a login system and was wondering if there is any way that I could work on it at home

yes, first you will need to port forward so you can access it from the internet. all you will need then is a static ip so you can access it form the internet like so from the browser. ftp://120.xxx.xxx.xxx:21 .

Wouldn't a ftp server program like filezilla work using the 127.1.1.1, which is what the localhost is assigned to?
