(Forgive my ignorance here, but I've submitted a ticket to Drobo and they are taking forever to respond...)


I have a DroboPro attached to a Mac running Lion Server. All software and firmware is up to date and it works fine with FW800, however I want to use it with iSCSI connection for better speed. I've used it in the past directly connected to a MacPro with two Ethernet ports and all worked well. But now I want to run it on a LionServer machine attached to a Airport Extreme base station. I  followed the directions for using the USB cable to setup the device and then shutting down and switching to the Ethernet cable, but no luck.


I don't understand exactly what settings to use.


I have an External Static IP of 75.xxx.xx.xxx and a Subnet Mask of

My AirportExtreme is set with a beginning DHCP address of and ending in

I have my VPN set to use to


What IP address should I use for my DroboPro? What Subnet Mask?

Do I have to open any ports on the Airport Extreme?

Anything else I should know when running with this configuration and Lion Server?


Thank you !
