Default ftp redirection


does anybody know if there is a possibility to redirect ftp access?

What I wish to achieve is the following:
I have a private server with FTP access and ordinary dsl connection. This is because I need to be able to recieve greater amounts of data (up to 300MB) from my clients easily.
Via dynDNS the server is reachable from the net. But the access address is not nice and I wish to give it a more proffessional look. So I'd like to give my clients an address like www.mydomain.com/ftp (with the name of my homepage) that points to my private server. Can this be done, e.g. with the .htaccess file?

Thank you,
regards, Tom

What you need is a domainname.
Within the DNS-records of that domainname, you must point an A-record to your External IP-address of your DSL-connection.
If your server is within a LAN, you also have to create the right portforwarding (port 21) to the Internal IP-address of your FTP-server.
