You need a external IP address or a domain address for externally linking your hosted database for users outside your room. For that you need to make sure your computer can be access from outside.
I suggest you contact your local Finnish guru Dr Volker Krambrich . He can help you

I am using the Wan IP from the router, but Filemaker Go says "No files available"
The reason you don't find anything in the FMS manual about this is because this is normal network/router setup and not FMS specific.
You are correct to use the WAN IP address of the router, but your router and its firewall needs to be set up to:
- have port 5003 open
- have port 5003 TCP traffic forwarded to the internal LAN IP address of your FMS machine
(that FMS machine needs a static IP address obviously because if it changes IP because of DHCP then the router will not know about it and send the traffic to the wrong internal IP address).
Thanks, that sounds like the kind of advice I was looking for. I had to leave office for the airport but will see if my partner can check those ports.
