Hi all,

Quick question, hoping it can be solved with a quick answer

Not sure what I'm doing wrong: I'd like to set up port forwarding for Skype and Transmission, however in the airport utility even when I assign the public/private ports to the ones specified in the respective programs (with the IP address for the machine I am using), if I go into Transmission or onto a port checker website the connections are shown as closed for the ports I have selected (on the public side).

I've made a DHCP reservation for this machine to tie it to a given IP address, and I've enabled NAT port forwarding protocol in the Network options (no default host so far).

Also, in case it makes a big difference, right now I'm connecting to the internet via a Cisco DCP3825 cable modem running in bridge mode, with the AEBS in DHCP and NAT router modes.

Any tips?

    We could use your help, halpinhe!  We are trying to share a database file for a school auction committee.  Unfortunately port forwarding seems necessary, but complicated.  Were you able to get this going?
