    I've finished setting up a small server using the public folder on m,y mac mini running OS X 10.5.7. I'm able to easily access it and use my login to access the public folder on my home network. My question is, how can i set up a system by which remotely, I can login to access JUST the public folder on my mini. Is this possible? If not, what else could I do that would allow something like this.

    i am not to sure if this will solve your problem, but you can try logmein. this can access your mini from any other computer and it works very well. there is a free version, and there is also a paid version which allows you to drag and drop. good luck.

    Setup an FTP server on the machine (System Prefs -> Sharing -> File Sharing). If you are behind a firewall or router you will have to port forward to your severs (this should be explained in the router's documentation)
