I need instructions to configure both the Zyxel 600 and the Network config in a Intel Mac Pro with Leopard.
I have the Filemaker Server Advanced 9 installed with the Icon on the desktop but when clicking it it stays in the brownser page ( firefox) looking for the localhost and doesn´t open the admin server console.
I´d been touching net confings and think i made a mess, now the ipv4 is in my static IP and i´m using PPPoE I don´t know if it´s the ideal.
In the Zyxel I opened the ports in the firewall to the, 80, 591, 5003, 50003 to 50006 and 16000 to 16018. Thanks

Ok - from the top, this is your checklist.

1. Make sure the server computer has a STATIC ip address on the local network. DHCP will cause an issue down the road because there is no guarantee that the server will get the same IP address if the power goes out, reboot, etc.
2. In Zyxel, forward the ports you want open to the STATIC local ip you defined above.
3. In Mac firewall, make sure that it's either OFF, or you have opened the ports.
4. Make sure that your ISP is giving you a static WAN ip. If not, you will run into problems down the road where your ISP changes your WAN ip address. OR - you can use a dynamic DNS service. (http://www.dyndns.org)
5. Finally, on all clients, make sure you put the WAN ip in the "trusted sites" zone in your security settings for the browser.
6. When requesting the server admin app...remember to include the port in your URL:
http://serveripaddress:16000

Locally, you should be able to do: http://localIPaddressofserver:16000 and get the app.
