I have a new Mac set up as a home server. I can use the Finder's
Go | Connect to Server... from local Macs to connect with
smb://my-new-server.local, but can't connect from outside my LAN. I've tried
smb://xxx.yyy.zzz.www (my actual static IP address).
I have set my router to forward TCP traffic on port 445 to the server. What am I missing?
Update: have now added forwarding of port 139 but still no luck connecting. Verified that my ISP doesn't block these ports. Could this be something Apple just doesn't allow?
Could a remote user somehow tunnel into my LAN and access the SMB server that way? Where are instructions on doing this?
