Hello, I tried to use this good program however it doesn't seem to be working for me.

I have dlink DSL-G624Tv2, did the port forwarding thing (TCP: 51480). When adding a file to share on the internet the link has the dedicated ip of my desktop for my router 192.168.1.1 and not the external ip address via which someone would connect to my pc using the tcp port 51480.

I'm quite sure I'm missing on a setting here. Also when trying to test connection HFS seems to connect to various ports (51480, 80,81,...) most of them I have not forwarded. When trying to connect trough firefox using my external ip followed by :51480 there is nothing to connect. What am I missing here?

thank you

yes, if your 51480 fails, it tries anyway some standard ports

YOU can't use your external address yourself. Only others can, those outside your LAN.

Thank you. That worked great. It seems I have to click on Menu -> Ip address -> Find external address everytime I want to turn it on.

Thats quite usefull when there is no static ip available.  :)

there's also an automatic version in the "start/exit" menu
