Ah, good point, ilovejedd. I hadn't thought about that.

However, to do this, you would need to know your WAN side IP address, correct? Those are usually always dynamically assigned (at least for comcast in the US). However, there are lots of ways to find out the IP address of your own machine remotely. So, I guess it should still be doable.

Mightn't it be easier (and possibly more secure) to just write a cronjob that syncs your calibre database every night to a location that's accessible on the web. Like your iDisk (if you have one) or to your own server?
