    I am trying to use the app Wifile with the following setup:

    Macintosh OSX.3.4
    Cable Modem going to a router doing DHCP.

    I have Windows sharing setup in my sharing prefs, but I can't seem to get any connection. My ip from the router is a standard 192.168.1.101

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    DHCP? It wil not work with that set up. You need to have a static IP address that is addressable from the outside world.

    You will need to register your ISP assigned IP address with a service like dyndns.org. The you will point WiFile to the Domain name they assign you. Then on the cable router you can setup a port forwarding for WiFile traffic to forward to your internal address. It is preferable that you use a static address internally, otherwise you will need to up date the cable router whenever it changes. Some firewalls offer an embedded interface to dyndns.org & will automatically update dyndns.org whenever your IP changes. Otherwise you will need to download their software. One firewall I am familiar with is WatchGuards SOHO6 @ www.watchguard.com. It definately supports dyndns.org
