    On my macbook, I have Dmzplus enabled. I can access my macbook through ftp, which is very handy for school.

    How would I set up my other computers for this kind of thing? Dmzplus allows only one computer, which is not what I want. I have a PowerMac that I want to be able to use as storage.

    How can I set an address for my other machines?

    What is it exactly you want to do?

    As I understand it, you have a DMZ setup in a home (A)DSL-NAT config, pointing all incoming traffic to one Mac (so you can ftp to it from outside your home, etc.)
    Correct?

    If so, problem is that ususally you can only setup a DMZ to one IP address, or use portforwarding to one IP address for port nr. 21 (ftp).

    What you can do, is gain access from outside to your DMZ-Mac (ARD, VNC, ssh) and then ftp (or sftp) to the other Mac on your home-network from there.
    ftp that file to that DMZ Mac, and then get the file from outside via ftp.

    Maybe portforwarding is easier though....
    Pointing port 548 (AFP) to your FileServer, and the rest to your "DMZ" Mac.

    I feel like it would be a lot easier to just set up an FTP server running on a different port than 21, and then use port forwarding. However, I have not worked extensively with the built-in FTP in OSX, so I don't know if it allows those sorts of changes.

    I would just like to be able to access all of my computers via their ip addresses.

    Would employing a DynDNS help me?
