I had the same problem as you, by the sounds of it. When I installed Snow Leopard Server on a mini, it went through the motions of configuring the attached Airport base station NAT settings to support the services I had turned on. Unfortunately, that configuration either didn't stick, or the Airport lost the settings in the restart. Here's where I posted a question about this experience: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=10318987�
Like you, I've been redirected to that "well know" list on several occasions, but it doesn't quite answer the question we both seem to have which is: +If Snow Leopard Server had successfully configured the NAT port settings on my Airport router, what would that configuration look like?+ Or, put in other terms: +What are just the ports I need to open on my Airport router to adequately support my installation of Snow Leopard Server?+
Of course, it all depends on what services you have enabled, so it would be helpful if the list could be broken down by service type.
Yes, the sure would save wading through that massive "well know" ports list to find just the few you need to manually configure the Airport...
It's possible that the commands your server tried to initialize the interface's firewall properly may be in your system log (under logs in the server admin app).
Also, you could lookup the current firewall config on your server and repeat the applicable entries on the router/firewall.
I would use "sudo ipfw -list" in terminal. Check this doc for more information (though it's a bit outdated, it's got a few great pointers): http://macdevcenter.com/pub/a/mac/2005/03/15/firewall.html
