The edge.
for telnet m8 forward port 23 to the internal IP of the dreambox (192.168.1.24 for example) in the router settings, see portforward.com for how to, then when in work open a dos window type in telnet and your ISP IP and itll as you for username and password for dreambox and thats it

You forwarded it to the right IP?
You connecting via port 23?
You made sure that its open properly on your router?

for ftp its port 21. You'll need to forward that too.
