22. SSH, FTP, VPN, and Web Sharing > Connecting from the Road

Connecting from the Road

You can also connect to your Mac’s regular File Sharing feature (Chapter 13) from over the Internet. This feature is a blessing to anyone who travels, whether with a laptop or to a branch office, because you’ll never be up the creek without a paddle if you discover that you left an important file at home.

To connect over the Internet, make sure that you’ve set up the home-base Mac for file sharing, as directed in Chapter 13. Then, once you’re on the road, go online and proceed like this:

  1. Choose GoConnect to Server.

    The Connect to Server dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 22-4.

    The Connect to Server dialog box lets you type in the IP address for the shared Mac to which you want access. (Ensuring that the shared Mac is turned on and connected to the Internet is the network administrator’s problem.)
