Follow-up: I've managed to open a port for Transmission by selecting one of the default "Service Types" for the ports. By giving the port service a custom name, it seems as though (checking by performing a port scan in Network utility) the Airport Utility doesn't actually open the ports that you specfiy. Is this perhaps a bug?

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?

Sadly I never got it to work. I called up Apple and they claimed that all the ports are open for the Airport Express, but if I run port scanner in Network Utilities none of the ports I specify show up as open unless I select one of the "Default" port categories like "Windows File Sharing". I told this to the person I spoke to on the phone, and they replied several times in a row that they are not allowed to help set up port forwarding, that they can only provide info on how to open the ports, and that even if the ports are subsequently not opened or forwarded they can't provide any assistance. It wasn't a very good conversation. Unfortunately, based on some of the other disucssions I've looked at in this forum, it doesn't seem possible to do conventional custom port forwarding using this version of the Airport Utility. Hopefully someone will correct me though. Sorry I can't be more help.
