Internet IP Address of my System
Could anyone advice me on how to get the ip address of my pc. The reason being I wanted to make my PC as FTP server so that my friends can connect to my pc?
When I typed ipconfig, I get 192.168.1.2. This is the ip from the router.
When I connect to WhoAmI sites i am get 122.164.218.x. When I connect to this ip using FTP command it is not connecting to my system. It is connecting somewhere else.

Your PC will have an internal IP and an external IP.
Internal IP is what you see inside your own network, e.g., by using command like 'ipconfig/all'. Computers that are inside your own network need to connect to this computer using this IP.
External IP is the IP of your computer to the outside world. This is what is displayed in 'WhoAmI' sites. Computers from the external world must use this address to connect to your machine.
Whether from internal or external source, your computer must first allow connections. Connections are allowed from ports (gates). For FTP, port 21must be open. This port (21) and telnet port (23) are extremely dangerous ports to open. Remember that once you open port 21 (FTP), it is open to the whole world and not just your friends. You are inviting port attacks, hacker attacks, virus, etc. So be careful of what you wish to do.

I could connect to my pc using "localhost" eg: ftp localhost, i am able to connect and system asks for username and pwd. When I give that info, I am able to connect. This means that ftp connection thru internal IP works fine.
When I use the external IP, ftp 122.164.218.x, system connects to some other pc; I know it is not connecting to my system because of two things.
1. My FTP server program does not show the log that user is connecting.
2. The ftp welcome message is different.
Is there any setting that I should do in the beetel 220bxi adsl+modem to configure for FTP to open the port?
I am using the airtel's connection using beetel 220bxi adsl+modem. Could anyone tell me the username and password to connect to "beetel 220bxi adsl+modem", when I type 192.168.1.1 in the Internet explorer? I tried admin/admin
Thanks and Regards,

You must open the ports in the beetel modem. Check in advanced settings. There could be options such as Virtual Server, NAT/DMZ, etc.
If nothing works you can configure your modem in bridge mode and all ports will be open.

before you configuring the FTP server , pleaseforword your FTP port (21)from beetel 220bxi adsl+modem to your local machine . after that you can access your server from outside.

Why dig up really old threads?
This is a three month old thread, and it seems the person who asked the question hasn't been back here since July'08 .

There is no harm in posting at old threads as long as it is relevant to the topic and even better if new information is added... Any new member searching for his problem can then be able to look at a particular topic from a wide angle...
