    I have what could be called the typical "tower at home, laptop on the road" setup. I am able to see the tower from the laptop when on my local network (Linksys WRT54G router). I hooked up at a remote office and the tower appeared for a second, tried to connect, failed to connect, then left the 'shared' list. I can't even try to reconnect since it's not listed anymore. Has anyone run into this?

    Thanks!

    did you follow the set up guide for it? I found it a little difficult to set up.. You have to set up NAT porting.. here's Apples guide, maybe this will help.. I watched the little video they had and still screwed it up..lol.. maybe you'll have more luck..

    The router did have Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) enabled already. I'll look around for the NAT option...

    Thanks!
