Thanks! I'm still having trouble getting past my home ISP router. I can see the calibre index and download using a private IP - 192.168.etc -- and using port 8787 which is forwarded in the router. But I can't get there with a public IP. I'll keep trying, as the spirit moves.
For my purposes, the dropbox solution is good enough ... if I can figure out how to deliver the files on the Kindle.
