Surprisingly yes! :) You just need to forward port 50000 on your router to you local computer.

Example:
- Your computer at your home is located at 192.168.1.101 and you have a public IP of 65.23.45.65
- Login to your router and forward port 50000 to 192.168.1.101
- Open construct and open the project you want to preview.

On your computer you can go to 192.168.1.101:50000 and see the preview.

On your friends computer located remotely he will open chrome and go to 65.23.45.65:50000 which your router will forward to your computer and you computer will see the construct is listening to the port and launch the preview

Your question got me curious so i tested my own so i can say for sure this works. Good luck!

You're all very welcome.. :) ... I'm glad it helped.. Don't forget that for each C2 window that's open at the same time it increments the port number so adding a range of 50000-50010 might be needed in some cases if you have more than 1 project open for testing.
