Hi Everyone.
I'm new to this forum and I need your Help! I want to configure my PowerMac G4 QuickSilver 2002 Running Mac OS X Leopard (10.5.8), 1.5Go RAM with 40 GO Boot Drive and 80Go Internal Storage (2X40GO RAID 0). I already made up a server but only for my local network, i'm currently sharing my 80Go Hard Drive to my actual Mac Mini 2011(Lion 10.7.3). The thing is that I want my 80Go Hard Drive in my PowerMac G4 to be shared via internet so my friend could connect to it. When I connect myself to the Hard Drive I can mount it on my desktop, is he gone be able to do that? Cause it would be the simple way for me and him to share file via this Hard Drive. We are currently using DropBox but we want to change to use this hard drive. I will post pictures so you will be able to understand what i'm talking about. I can download software, open ports on my network, do whatever I need to make my PowerMac G4 as a Server. I know he will need to use my External IP Address and it's find, I just need help to configure all this good stuff.

Thanks You A Lot Guys!

P.S1 : Sorry for my bad English I'm French.
P.S2 : On the picture I circled in Red ''Se connecter au serveur...'' This means in english ' : Connect to Server...

You need to do a few things

Give the G4 server a static IP address in your home, so in network preferences, use DHCP with manual address and give it a hight last number, so 192.168.0.200 - where the first 3 sets of numbers are what all your computers use internally and the last number is 200

Next, open up file sharing port on your router so that outside people can get to the G4 from the internet
AFP (apple file sharing) uses port 548
SMB (windows file sharing) uses port 139
These should forward to XXX.XXX.X.200 - the address of your G4

You will have to have access to the router and open up these two ports, called port forwarding, the process will depend on your router so you may want to google that or visit the routers help pages

Then make sure Apple file sharing is turned on, and smb sharing is also enables if your friend uses windows

Also in the G4s sharing preferences give your friend a sharing account so that they have permission to login

once done you can send them a link to test out, but this will be based on your public IP address, to find that see below
http://www.whatismyip.com/

so the file sharing link for Macs would be

afp://277.135.16.199

assuming 277.135.16.199 is your public IP address

if you have turned on smb file sharing then the link for windows computers would be

smb://277.135.16.199

but it may be \\277.135.16.199

without testing it I'm not sure but one of them should work
