    OK great - Just be sure to use strong passwords.

    Indeed, important. But also because most people have that option ON and dont know you can reacht the AE in this way.

    Verrrrryyy glad it know works!!

    Really missed my shared disks!

    To me, the biggest benefit is the wide-area bonjour and dynamic DNS support MM does.  It will let you resolve dynamic IP address your ISP assigns to you.  If I had a fix IP address, I won't even need MobileMe, since I can run everything on my server at home.

    I agree.

    I agree, the solution mentioned above is just a workaroud, the current state of the service is not aceptable! Basta...

    I don't know too much about the software writing that goes into a firmware update, but wouldn't it make sense that if they can resolve dynamic ip for laptops and computers using iCloud (can screen share and file share), they should be able to do the same for time capsule/AEBS like they did for MobileMe?

  • W.R.R. Farid Level 1 (0 points)

    the solution above is indeed a work around and I have a dynamic IP address. So this solution is useless to me. Can't understand why Apple can't just solve this. They had this running and it is no problem at all to implement this in iCloud. The reason I think they are not doing it (and thereby letting down their paying cutomers) is because they want to force you to use iCloud. This is really silly to be honest. I paid for my Airport Extreme and it's functions are being minimized because Apple wants to force it's free service onto everyone.

    It's finally fixed!


    New airport utility 6 is out with a firmware update for the base stations, back to the mac on the airport is now working again!

    Installed 6.0 and 7.6.1 but still no go for me. I guess my office's firewall is preventing access to Time Capsule located at my home.


  • mrigler Level 1 (0 points)

    I am trying to set up a DynDNS like feature(could use No-IP or other equivalent services)  so I can access the router remotely(I have some environmental monitoring at the remote site that I want to be able to access)  I don't want to leave a computer at the remote site.   Does the Airport Extreme support such a feature?  Has anyone been successful at setting this up?  Or does anyone have experience with non-Mac routers in being able to use a router based DynDNS?  What service(eg No-IP or DynDNS) did you use?  THanks MR

    Go to and there are instructions for setting up DynDNS. I haven't done this myself, but everything that are describing makes sense.

    Hi there,


    Having the same problem as you with the time capsule (4th Gen) and BTMM. Its now May 2012 though and I have all the lastest firmware and airport updates. I have enabled bonjour internet etc etc and can FIND the time capsule when connected to another LAN. However, on trying to connect I get the same result as in the image you posted.


    Just wondered if you have discovered anyh solution to this?



  • ivanvanbeek Level 1 (10 points)

    I think its your firewall, everything is working over here. I did had the same problem when i used a draytek router that was installed as the internet router and after that was the BTMM. (in the Netherlands we are not able to connect the internet cable directly into the BTMM).  When i changed the draytek to a 'dumb' and cheap router from Netgear everything started to work.

    Butttt i opend up port: 3283 and 5900.
