    I read the guide about how to setup your TC so you can access it when you are away from your home network. My question is this: I have my TC setup in Bridge Mode with a Verizon FIOS router. Is there another way I can setup my TC so I can access it with my MBA away from home?

    Hi,

    For accessing your TC remotely, pls. follow the steps below:

    - You must have a static public IP address, if you don't, you can use dynamicdns.
    - Assign static IP address for the TC (LAN).
    - On your router, forward port 548 (correct me if I'm wrong guys) to the TC.
    - You can access the TC by connecting to AFP://your.ip.address.

    Hope this helps.

    Happy :apple:ing!

    Cheers.

    will this work in bridge mode? I have my TC setup in bridge with my verizon fios router. I know if I turn that off I get the option to share a public ip but not sure how I would set that up. I have an n network and a g network both seperate for my devices. I do have a DNS domain from the site u mentioned.
