    I have few computers behind the wireless router. All the computers have static private addresses 198.168.1.xxx. The issue is that when I try to access any computer e.g to use FTP. From outside since I can only use the main WAN IP address when I use FTP I can only connect to one computer basically the one running FTP service on port 21.

    I can access the wireless router and if necessary can do the port assignments. My question is that if multiple computers are running FTP services behind the router how can I connect to each one of them. Please explain on any tips would be nice.

    On the router forward port 21 to computer A, port 21;
    forward port 22 to computer B, port 21;
    forward port 23 to computer C, port 21.

    When desiring to access computer B or C remotely specify ports 22 and 23, respectively.
