Would I be able to access my SharedCache server from outside its network or does it have to be a LAN? (geocaching purposes)

Can I use server host name in configuration or only ip address?

thanks

Hi, 

http://www.codeplex.com/SharedCache/SourceControl/changeset/view/24362#482612

/// <summary>
/// IPs the name of the address from host.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="hostName">Name of the host.</param>
/// <returns></returns>
public static IPAddress IPAddressFromHostName(string hostName)

i used in some previous installations hostnames between servers but my personal conslusion is
to use ip because of DNS.GetHostEntry() which takes a long time - checkout my blog for some more info: http://netrsc.blogspot.com/search?q=DNS

if you gone setup a geolocation installation i would like to know more about it - keep us updated about progress
