    I've recently enabled web sharing so that in theory I can access my files by browsing through my computer's "website". I have two computers hooked to the web wirelessly via airport extreme (roundish one) I've also obtained a pseudo web address with www.dynds.com to avoid remembering my IP address.

    After all this, I type the url that I obtained from dynds on my browser and it directs me to the page that says "Gleefully Served by Mac OS X" which is what I'm looking for. This also works on my PC, but when I give the URL to outsiders (not within my wireless network) to try, it poops out, in other words... times out. =)

    I've gone as far as port fwding several ports including 80, but that didn't work either. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong and I need help.

    Thanks in Advance,

    You need to have a DNS entry against a domain. (Do you own this domain? doesn't look like it!).

    Well to start with trouble shooting this type of thing i would go to http://whatsmyip.org/ look at the IP on top of the page. This is from the machine that is hosting it. Then have someone type that IP into there web browser from the outside. If that works fine then its DNS related. If not its either port forwarding or ISP or router related.
