Putting iFolder Outside Firewall

I have finally gotten iFolder to work and now I just need to be able to access it from anywhere. I would like to put iFolder outside of the firewall so that I can access it from anywhere. If anyone could help me with this problem I would greatly appreciate it.

Re: Putting iFolder Outside Firewall

Sorry for slow reply - not visited this newsgroup for a while!

If you are still looking at this, it's not too hard. Not sure what
version you are using here, so I'll assume 2.18 for now.

1.You need to nat or port-forward port 80 from a public address to the
ifolder server
2. You need to allow port 80 in via filter exceptions on whatever
firewall you are using
3. The iFolder server must be configured to use a URL (in the ifolder
manager). This is critical as every time a client connects to ifolder
(2.1.8), the server pushes this url back to the client. The URL must
resolve to the public IP address on the public side, which means either
public DNS entries, or local hosts file entries on the client.
