Hosting FTP Server

Hello everyone. Recently, I am trying to host an FTP server from my client computer in VMware for a group of a few friends and I to use outside of my internal network. The network connection is bridged, so it would seem that my client is on the same network as my host computer (a real computer, not a virtual one). Something I have noticed, is that I cannot ping the host to the virtual. I am not entirely sure why that is. Hopefully, that will not get in the way of what I am trying to do.

I have gone into my wireless router's webpage, and adjusted the ports accordingly (Ports I need opened along with the NAT IP address I want them forwarded to.) Afterwards, upon checking with "Canyouseeme.org" I am informed that it still cannot see services on ports 21 and 20. I have obviously tried to have a friend of mine connect, but to no avail.

If you could tell me what I am doing wrong, or if you have the time, I can give you the Teamviewer login so you can see what is up. I am guessing it is something simply I have forgotten. I have already tried disabling Windows Firewall, but that seemed to have no affect. This issue is also had on my host.
