Transfer books from desktop to iPad wirelessly.
I just discovered the brilliant facility whereby calibre allows one to copy books from my desktop to my iPad across the Internet!
I set every thing up according to the manual and entered my local IP Address eg something like 188.8.131.52:8080 into the address bar of my browser and was delighted to see a list of books from my desktop PC and was able to copy a couple!
However when I tried this from somebody else's wireless system (without changing the IP address) I got a message saying server not responding even though calibre was running on my PC with Internet transfer enabled.
What am I doing wrong? I know there are two IP addresses (the other one is something like 184.108.40.206:8080) but that one never worked so I assume the local IP address is the one to use - it works perfectly when my iPad is accessing my own router directly, but I'd assumed I would be able to download books from anywhere in the world, assuming I had an Internet connection.
Has anyone got this feature to work remotely? Any help gratefully received.

your router isolates and shares internally.
You need to 1)open a inward bound port (in your case: 8080)
Warning: Pinholes in the firewall expose your system to IMHO get security advice, minimize exposure times.
2)forward the port (8080) to a static/permanently assigned internal IP for the server
