FTP server on a cable connection
I have a cable connection (provider is: Telenet, belgium) and I know that this provider is forcing you to use their proxy server else you haven't an internet connection. But ports 2048 + above are open to use. But I haven't a static IP address.
So: 1) can I ‘make’ a static IP address ?
2) Can my provider see that I am running a server, and has anybody did this already by this provider ?

Unfortunitly you wont be able to get static IP unless your ISP provides one... Im not sure if there is anyway of getting around that.. Maybe some kinda Switch & Hub hook up..
and Yes your ISP will know that you are running an FTP.. However unless they have a password to your FTP then they will be unable to tell what youhave on it !
