I've just installed Plone (www.plone.org) for a client on their server. They currently run their sites on Windows 2000 with IIS on port 80. I set up Plone to run on port 81, but what do I need to do to make this accessible to outside traffic? It is currently inaccessible to anyone outside the offices, and I'm afraid I have no expertise with IIS. [more inside]

I have thousands of songs on my laptop. Unfortunately, my laptop's speakers are terrible. My desktop, however, has a great set of speakers. I want to listen to music from my laptop on my desktop speakers, and I want to control the audio from my laptop. The desktop and laptop can connect to each other over my network. Is there anything out there that will let me do this easily and at no cost?

I have a Treo 650 using Sprint. I need to use POP & Exchange Active Synch for my mail synching/sending/receiving. But my Exchange 2003 server is locked down so it can't relay except for a few IP addresses. I need to discover the IP subnet that Sprint is using to send mail so I can allow it to use my exchange server as a relay so I can send email from my Treo. Any ideas what this is, how to find it, or how to do it otherwise?

I need software, OS X (including Darwin or XWindows) or Windows 2K, that can be set to automatically check the maximum download or upload speed to and from multiple machines outside my WAN at given time intervals by doing pre-set tasks and recording the total time the tasks take and the size of the total data transferred. I do not need software that shows me the current throughput of whatever random surfing or emailing I'm doing. [more inside]
Routers: This may seem rather silly to some folks, but I need a little help in figuring out what my network problem is. (I tried to google around, but i am not even sure what the term is that I should be searching for) The problem is, I am hosting my own web-server and MySQL DB for development purposes, and I have a domain name that points to it. When I am outside my own network I can hit my URL just fine. But when I inside my network, it always try to go to the routers configuration page. Any ideas as how to make sure the router is forwarding the ports correctly INSIDE my network?
I am searching for a 'one stop shopping' website for hardware and network related questions. I am a computer consultant with almost twenty years experience, so I know my way around the basic issues and, given enough time, can usually dig up and/or figure out anything I'm not familiar with. But I am finding myself with less and less time to spend researching this stuff and would much prefer being able to ask a pro directly. [more inside]

My sister lives in a small town in NH that started offering free wireless access in the center of town. I'd like for her to be able to connect to the internet from her house, which is about .5 miles away from the antenna but with tall buildings (church steeples) in between. She has a desktop, her husband has a Centrino-equipped laptop, and I visit with a 802.11-able laptop. My brother-and-law and I are thinking of building a cantenna or the like and mounting it on the roof . But what do we attach the antenna to? All the routers/"access points" I've looked at so far assume a cable (ethernet) connection as input signal which is then output as wireless or ethernet or both. But we want to both receive and dispense wireless. I know there are "repeaters" that can do this but all the affordable ones I've studied only output using proprietary protocols, not 802.11(g), which would require buying proprietary equipment for all the computers in question. Any inexpensive solutions?
