Now to the practical part…
Should you watch in the “Web” tab for the address, you see it first containing locahost, then the local ip address of your mac, and finally -if your router supports UPNP- the external ip address of your router.
This is the address you can type in a supported web browser to access your Merlin Server across networks. So, in our example…
Configuration samples for routers not supporting UPNP, or in cases UPNP is not desired, can be found here
When having enabled the Mac OS X Firewall, make sure it is set appropriately. More information about the Firewall setup here
