thats what i want. if the xbox ip is 192.168.1.100, what will the public ip be for the xbox?
If your pc and xbox are both connected to a router (which is what your setup seems to be), then goto http://www.ipchicken.com
and the ip address that it gives you is the public ip address to your router.
So in your router settings, make sure that you forward port 80 to your xbox (if you want to be able to use the remote control publicly) or port 21 (if you want to be able to ftp publicly) to your xbox's ip address.
Then anyone with a browser and internet can type in your public ip address that you retrieved from www.ipchicken.com and enter the username and password if you create one, and be able to use the remote control for your xbmc, or be able to ftp into your xbox.
I have this setup and it's worked great for me. I use my xbox as a server to host webfiles for my website, and I control the song playing in my house on my xbox via my laptop that is wirelessly connected to my network.
Just remember that the root folder of the WebServer feature is in your XBMCHomeFolder/web/
So if you want to have a website on your xbox, your homepage would be ....../XBMC/web/index.html
If that's what you are doing, then you need to rename the default.asp file under XBMC/web/ so that it doesn't load that instead of your index homepage.
Hope this helps you,
