Hardware :: How To Open Port Forwarding On Airport Express

I have a Linksys and just switched to using an Airport Express for the wireless network. In order to use Desktop Connection (VNC) on my iPad I need to open the ports 5900 (Mac Pro) and 3389 (PC). In 1st pic is my Linksys setup that did this. In the 2nd, is this where I enter the ports (under Host or Tunnel) and what syntax for Address and Length? Or if this is the wrong place how do I do it?

Hardware :: Is AirPort Express Router - Set Up Port Forwarding And Static IP's
I understand what it is used for and how it works (for the most part) but it is actually a router? Can I get into it's settings with a browser to set up port forwarding and static IP's, etc.? I am looking to replace my Dell TrueMobile wireless router and I want to make sure that I have the right idea about the AirPort Express before I buy.

Hardware :: Airport Extreme Not Forwarding Airdisk To Connected Airport Express Network?
I have an Airport Extreme, with two USB hard drives connected to it. The Airport Extreme shares these disks to my wireless network via Airport Disks.

Upstairs I have an Airport Express, that wirelessly connects to my Airport Extreme downstairs, and extends the wireless network so I get a good wireless reception upstairs.

My problem is, that it does not seem like me Airport Express does a good job of forwarding my 2 USB Airport Disks to the extended wireless network upstairs.

For example, when I use the AirVideo iPhone app to stream video from my USB Airport Disks I get a server connection error when I go upstairs and the iPad/iPhone switches to the Airport Express networks. I cannot reconnect as long as it is on the Airport Express network. If I turn the airport Express off, and thus switch to the poor wireless reception from the Airport Extreme, I can connect to the USB Airport disks again.

The Airport Express is connected to the Airport Extreme in bridged mode.

Hardware :: Airport Extreme Port Forwarding AMule
Having issues with portforwarding on my new macbook aluminium using the airport extreme as my wireless router. Using the airport utility i scroll over to the port forwarding tab in my airport extreme. I dont know how im doing this wrong..i allow the ports that amule uses (port 4662 (TCP) and a few others for the kad network). Is it as simple as typing in 4662 in the public TCP and private TCP? I still obtain a low id and the online test provided by amule for the port 4662 doesnt succeed. Any help would be great.

OS X :: Are Port Forwarding Settings Saved On The Airport Extreme Or The Attached Mac
I need up figure out how to set up forwarding for a few programs I use, however, the Mac I'm using at the moment will be replaced soon with a new one. So I'd like to know if port forwarding settings are saved on the Airport Extreme or the Mac connected to it. If it's saved on the Mac, then I would just wait till I get my replacement to set up port forwarding.

OS X :: Forwarding Port For Transmission?
ok, so i have a bt homehub, and i want to download things on transmission, but recently it has slowed to a crawling pace, despite having many seeders.

So, i heard that to speed it up you can forward ports, and whereas i am a good gamer, i have no practical skills with computers besides a few mainly showy bits of knowledge.

OS X :: Port Forwarding With DynDNS
I've been trying to use DynDNS with my Belkin router to forward ports for VNC and FTP, and I've gotten as far as having one port probe website show ports 21 and 5900 as "open." I can also connect to the DynDNS address and configure my router, which I guess is expected. For port forwarding, I've told ports 5900-5900 from outside to go to ports 5900-5900 on my computer, whose local IP is static at Same for port 21.

However, typing in vnc://<my host> or ftp://<my host> doesn't work. If I try to use cyberduck, it says "connection refused," as opposed to connection failed if the address doesn't exist, so I know there's something up, but I don't know why it's not working. And I don't think it's the way the VNC or FTP servers themselves are set up; that's pretty simple.

IChat AV 3 :: Port Forwarding Not Working / Why Is This?
I'm using iChat 4.0.8 to try and video chat with my mother who is on a PC and using AIM 6.9. If I put my Mac in the DMZ of my router (D-Link DIR-825) everything works just fine. As soon as I take my Mac out of the DMZ I cannot video chat; normal IM is fine at all times.

So, I'm curious as to why I can't make this work even when I forward the necessary ports as described in this Mac KB...

What is SIP exactly? I think I saw something related to this mentioned in the error log.

If this is indeed the issue, then I wonder why a newer model router like the DIR-825 would have trouble with this? Anyone else out there with a similar issue that may have discovered a workaround? Sure, I could put my Mac in the DMZ, but it's a hassle to move it in/out not to mention unsafe of course.

I can reach my main web site on, but I cannot reach my camera. I configured my camera to use port 5001, and does not see it.

OS X Leopard :: Setting Up Static IP For Port Forwarding
I have an iMac with Leopard 10.5.6. I live in the UK and I'm subscribed to Virgin cable broadband, through a Netgear WGR614v9 router. I have a P2P program called Utorrent, and I'm trying to carry out a task called 'port forwarding'. I read through [URL] and it tells me that in order to do so, I have to set up a static IP on my iMac to do so.

I've tried to do this in Networking in System preferences -
1. I go to TCP/IP and changed the configure IPv4 to Manual
2. Changed the IP address to something similar to my router IP (router IP is and I changed the IPv4 address to
3. Wend to DNS section and entered in the DNS server addresses that I got from phoning the internet provider

Then pressed Apply to find that my internet connection goes down completely. The Airport works properly and can connect to the router, but the internet is showing a red sign. Setting up the port forwarding in the Netgear router is easy enough - you just go to the port forwarding section and add a port to open. Every time I go to the [URL] (my designated port here) and check, the port is closed.

Hardware :: Adding Security On TC Port Forwarding?
I am using my TC as the main router on my network, this means that my DSL modem is connected to it, as are my Macs and my NAS.

I have setup port forwarding, to allow for HTTPS access to my NAS, and it is working, so I can access my shares from out-and-about.

Now I would like to add a level of security, and I remember that on my old Netgear router I could specify which computers the ports were open to, using their MAC addresses.

Hardware :: ARD Port Forwarding To Two Different Computers?
I searched MRoogle and Google so I apologize if this question has already been posted. If it has can someone please redirect me to the answer?

Situation: From school (obviously an external network) i'd like to be able to use ard 3.3.2 to manage both my imac and my server, currently i have my port mapping set to forward to my imac for ard.

Problem: I'd like to be able to manage them both (through ard, for many reasons): i have not seen any possible way to change the ports that ard listens on my server (running 10.5 server). It's obvious you can pick the ports when you add the computer but not the ports that it listens on.

Possible solutions:?? I understand ssh tunneling allows you to connect to another computer but do not completely understand how this works... would this allow me to tell the router one port and the computer another?

OS X :: Use Transmission For Downloading Torrents And Port Forwarding
I use Transmission for downloading torrents and it's been going really slowly lately and I can't figure out why. When I check on Transmission it says that it's using port 51413, as per the picture below. So I go into my BT Homehub set up page and set up an application sharing option for Transmission like so: I have this forwarded to the MAC address of my Airport card. Am I doing something wrong here? Right now I'm downloading something and I'm apparently using 15 of 23 peers and it's going at 3.0 KB/s....

OS X :: Port Forwarding To Different Mac Behind Same Time Capsule?
I am using mocha VNC on my ipad and iphone to remote manage back to my macs at home. I set up port 5900 to forward to my iMac ( and it is working fine. I also wanted to be able to remote manage my mac mini ( as well but I have been unable to connect to it. I have tried forwarding 5901 and various other ports to it but have been unable to connect via VNC. I have all of the remote management settings identical to those on my iMac. I am not sure if this is an issue that remote management in OS X only listens to port 5900? Do I need to change a setting on the mac Mini so that it listens to 5901?

Applications :: Port Forwarding / VNC - Static IP Required?
From what I understand, remotely accessing your computer is actually not that hard with osx - AWESOME.. but i am finding that it seems like its "too easy to be true? From what i read, all you have to do is go into your system preferences on the server computer and enable sharing and then download "Chicken of the VNC" app (or something like it) and you can access your computer at home?! What about a static IP. Is a static IP required? Or is there a different path to take directly to your computer?

Also, when you are accessing your computer remotely, can you actually use sme of the more complex programs? For instance, i have an iMac at home with Adobe CS4 on it and lots of big photography files on it. Can you actually open and edit those files on your home computer from a different one?

OS X :: Safari Crashing - Editing A Port Forwarding Blog On My Space
Does anyone else have some Safari crashing issues? It usually happens when there is flash videos loading.Sometimes a video will try to load, and the browser closes. Not all the time, even on the same video. Not too sure what causes this, or how to fix it. I notice it will also do it sometimes when there are no videos, I could be on a forum such as this one. I was editing a port forwarding blog on myspace last night and when I was nearly done, I opened photobucket to get the links to some screen shots, and it crashed on me. Kind of a piss off, especially since it wasn't youtube or anything that usually causes it. I ended up re-doing it in an offline HTML file first before posting to avoid losing the data again.

Snow Leopard :: Connect To Server Using Port Forwarding And Vnc Viewer On Any Windows Machine

OS X Leopard :: Airport/Airport Express Doesn't Work With 2Wire Modem/router?
I've been trying to get my 2Wire modem to work with my Airport base station and Airport Express modules and haven't been able to at all. There are some security settings on the 2Wire modem that are very complicated. I've tried all sorts of things but nothing has worked.

What I want to do is use the Airport for a music network (and possibly using it as a LAN for accessing computers and printers, although that's secondary). I can get my Airport music network going just fine when it is hooked directly into the Ethernet port on the iMac (disconnecting the 2Wire), but when I connect it to my 2Wire DSL modem/router (model 2701), it doesn't work. I've read about bridging, changing IP addresses, etc., etc., to solve the problem but I don't want to have to have such a complicated setup that I'm going to forget how to reconfigure if anything goes wrong.

So, I was wondering if getting an Ethernet hub and hooking it up to the iMac and connecting the two devices to the hub would work. Can you still buy an Ethernet hub these days? I'm a little confused as to the difference between Ethernet hubs and Ethernet switches.

I also have a MacBook. Would it be easier to connect the base station to the MacBook Ethernet port and run the AirPort network from there instead?

Snow Leopard :: Airport Extreme As Base & Airport Express Configuration With Printer?
I have a new Airport Extreme, working fine. I have an older Airport Express (pre2008) that I have used for itunes.

I now want to use the Airport Express to get a printer on my network, as the printer will be in my office and I take my Macbook on the road, but still need my iMac to be able to print. No, there is not any space near the iMac for the printer!

I don't need the Airport Express for itune anymore, so I wanted to use it to hook to my existing Extreme network and hook the printer to the USB to expose it to the network. Can't seem to find any posts that directly address this configuration.

Hardware :: Airport Express + WD HDD - Unrecognized Airport Disk
MBP 2.2; OSX 10.4.11; Airport Express 802.11n (version 7.3.2); WD MyBook 320GB (format Mac OS Extended) I'm trying to get the WD HDD setup as a wireless hard drive, but it's not showing up at all in Airport Utility (I don't even have a 'disk' tab in the 'manual setup' menu). Airport Disk Utility just says "no airport disks found." Of course the HDD works fine when plugged in directly to the MBP. I've searched apple support and these forums, but haven't found anything that works yet. All help I have found says use the 'disk tab' in AE manual setup window. What do I do without a 'disk' tab? (or how do I get one?) is this a firmware/software issue with the AE?

Hardware :: Setting Up Airport Express Through Airport Extreme?
I currently have the apple extreme as my wireless router. It works great. I absolutely love it. I have two macbook pro's (wife and I both have one) and use it for my PS3 and Xbox 360. I started a new job and was given a free HP desktop (not my choice, but hey, it's free, so what can I say). The desktop is not wireless and I am not able to put my computer near the airport extreme because my TV already owns that territory. Today I bought the Airport express to use as a bridge (and other things in the future). I have plugged it in. I opened the airport utility using my macbook. It finds my extreme and my express. I select that I want to set up the express. I select that I want to set it up using an existing wireless network. I select my airport extreme. It tells me that it has to restart the express. I wait approximately 3 minutes. It then tells me that the settings to the express have been changed but it's not able to find it.

My main goal is to use the express as a bridge. I have the express plugged in beside the desktop and want to run an ethernet cable from the express to the desktop to allow for wireless capability.
