That link is your local network. Make sure your not running a webserver at the standard port 80 because it will mess things up. I have mine set to port 90. This can be accomplished by going through the setup area on FQ Server. Then give your friends the IP to your computer via the internet if you have Windows XP type this at the command prompt: ipconfig /all or check the status of your broadband modem. Either way you can find out what your IP is. Hope this helps ya.

Also give your friends the link via http://yourip:90 <- If you change to port 90 or it would look like this for the default http://yourip:80

Again hope this helps you.

P.S. Only use the ipconfig /all option if your using dialup otherwise you will not get your actual internet IP. Also that info will be under PPP adapter when using dialup and looking for the information in ipconfig /all.
