    well that was a bit hard to read, but i got the jist of it:

    1. you can't install the software probably because you don't haev admin rights on the computers

    2. what firewall are we talking about?

    3. to open port 21, you just have to map it through the router that whoever is running (school or you?)

    4. this ftp, would it be accessed by other computers on the lan only? or would it be accessed from the net as well?

    5. LAN stands for Local Area Network, so when you say LAN network, you are saying Local Area Network Network, its like saying ATM machine.

    Setting up an FTP server is not really Windows forum material. I'll shift this to the appropriate forum.
