What ports on the router need to be mapped to my trusty old Performa 6116 with system 9.0 installed that I want to use as a remote file server. Many ports are already mapped to it for the usual www, ftp, etc., but Mac file sharing uses ports that the tech support people cannot help me with.

i want to access my office desktop mac from anywhere in the world via TCP/IP.

Thanks!!

Completely depends on what software youre using. Are you accessing your office desktop via something like Timbucktu, or are you only accessing the files on it via FileSharing? If it's the latter try opening 548 and 427

I am wanting to use File Sharing only. Would Timbuktu or AppleShare IP help me?

Ports 548 and 427 are open and mapped (according to the tech guys in California - they won't let me access the router myself)

I can mount the remote volume and transfer files for a few megs, but then the remote server abruptly shuts down, usually at about the 1 - 2 meg mark.

Any ideas?

AppleShare IP would be faster but its probably overkill to run it on a machine thats not a server. Timbucktu would be nice because it would allow you to actually controll the remote machine. Both are faster than using regular old filesharing.

Thank you for the help. Would Timbuktu eliminate the abrupt disconnect problem (I hate my ISP....)

Depends on whether its an ISP issue, or a protocol issue. Appletalk is fairly chatty and can bog itself down. Timbucktu might fix that. Try the demo first.
