Ubuntu - help needed with sharing files please!!


I am trying to use ubuntu as a remote media server.

I have got it all working but have hit a brick wall.
I now can access my server using the www address as I have a dns redirection thingy in place...

I get the "it works!" page.

I would like the incoming connection to go straight to the public folder.
I would also like to password protect this folder.

can anyone please help!?


im pulling my hair out!

kind regards chris
