Is it supposed to be the case that we can administer FMSA12 remotely?

How would I get the FMSA12 in my office to be accessed from home for admininistration? I want to upload databases using the admin console, but I don't want to be in the office to do so.

Currently I have Apple File Protocol to the office machine, a Mac Pro quad core tower, which I can leave running in the office.

At home, and this is just a short test, but so far, I have Instant Web publishing access to the databases on my office machine, and I have FMNet access from FMP12.

I can create, delete records, edit pre-existing records. It works a charm.

When I'm in the office I administer the server from a start page.

When in the office, the start page launches from an alias, and then the admin console launches.

My question, is it possible, and if so how, to administer from outside the network on which the server is running?

cheers
