Can I perform Internet connections in FileMover?


Theoretically, yes, if you supply the public IP address of the host PC. However, a firewall or router will likely prevent FileMover connections. A personal firewall/router appliance that performs NAT (Network Address Translation) could be configured to allow FileMover connections through it. Essentially, the TCP port that FileMover uses must be forwarded to the internal IP address of the FileMover computer behind the router. Laplink technicians cannot assist with FileMover Internet connections, or with router configurations; though our knowledge base does provide more information about public IP addresses and firewall configuration in regards to other Laplink products.

Internet connections can be made more easily using other Laplink products, such as Laplink Gold and the Laplink Everywhere service. In addition, these products offer more features than FileMover does, such as remote control of the host.
