In technical terms this means that your Globodox installation must be on a machine which is accessible from the Internet via a Public Static IP address and firewalls on that machine and your network must allow incoming connections over port 5511 (Note: You can easily configure your Globodox installation to work with another port instead of the default port 5511).
