I guess all of you as Mac OS 9 or X users came across Personal Web Sharing at least once.
It is briefly said a folder (on OS X called Websites) where you can store websites.
Then you can activate Personal Web Sharing in the Network/Sharing Control Panel and you get your IP right there, so others can access you online. Sounded easy to me so I tried, but I was not possible for friends to reach my pages (they just saw a page sayin' "Ruben's personal webspace" or something like that.)
Now I wonder if that is because I am using a router or because I'm a fool or because it just doesn't work. and of course I'd like to find out how to make it work.
It would be a great way of sending files, it is like peer2peer sharing but you don't have all these firewall problems because it is implemented in OS X and your friends just access a normal web page.
Also, I would be interested if this directory has PHP functionality.
All answers appreciated,
