Question ID: 710508
I want to share Filemaker Pro 7.0 with associates via the internet. I have obtained an account with ip2go to solve the problem of changing IP address by ISP, but don't know how to configure by router's filewall... Motorola WR850G. The port being used by Filemaker is 591. IP2GO has given me the following additional information: "Having a name like foxencreekstudios.ip2go.us is exactly one of the things you need. I just ran an nMap scan from the "internet" (actually from ippages.com) against that name of yours, and it found the IP address as 184.108.40.206 and no "open" ports, but all ports are "filtered", which I believe indicates your firewall is controlling all access to this computer."

Ok, first you need to open that port via the router. First open up a web browser, and use your router address (commonly http://192.168.2.1/ or http://192.168.2.100/). Then search through the settings for a firewall or NAT/Virtual Server setting. You'll want to open up port 591, as specified. However, you'll need to figure out whether it's TCP or UDP, as the firewall on your router, and the software firewall (if you're using one) will probably ask for that as well. Also, if you haven't set a password on your wireless router, now would be a good time to do so! Next, you'll need to open the port on your software firewall on your computer. For the windows firewall, you can find instructions here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;308127 These instructions should be relatively similar to any other firewall out there. Just look for an "exceptions" setting, and input the port number and type to open it. Good luck!
