    So, what I'm trying to do, is make my Xbox, accessible from other computers (not on my home network). I know that you can type in ftp://username:password@192.168.XX.XX in your Internet bar, and access it at home, but I want to be able to access it from my friend's computer. So like if I wanted music on it to get, I want to get it from there. Does anyone know of a way to do this.

    You'll have to do some more researching, but I think you can set up a DMZ to open only one address (the address of your xbox) or port up to the outside world while keeping your other ports behind your router's firewall. Be aware that your Xbox will be under constant attack and can be hacked at any time.

    Also take a look at port forwarding. A quick search on DMZ says once your open computer is compromised, it can attack your other computers behind the firewall.
