im trying to set up a media server so that my friends from school can acess it and listen/watch multimedia files ( can also come in handy for school presentations too) can any one connect to this mms://server2k5/swift ?? this westell gateway doesnt have the dmz host feature like the linksys has, and i dont know if it will work.

if youre using verizon youre moe than likely using a cable or dsl modem. youre gonna want to go to no-ip.com and download there tools to redirect your people to a static ip address, aswell as set up a domain.

 

ive been trying to figure this out for weeks now and thats as far as ive gotten. now i have ot figure out how to setup the actuall file sharing part with apache.

I thought apache is a web server program (http), not FTP (file transfer)

 

try looking around for an FTP server program (free). I can't seem to find a good one.

 

 

You will also need to configure your router/modem to forward information from port 21 (FTP) or 80 (http). This depends on your individual router.

An FTP or HTTP will work fine.

Go download Apache, and put all of your music files in the apache/htdocs directory. For example, if you put song.mp3 in your htdocs directory, to access it remotely, you would type your external ipaddress, and then /song.mp3

It would look something like this:

xx.xxx.x.xx/song.mp3
