Hey all,


For the past month I've been trying to port forward on our AirPort base stations. Today, we upgraded from an AirPort Express (with no N capabilities) and bought the AirPort Extreme 5th Generation.


Most of today was getting the AirPort to run PPPoE instead of Ethernet. Our Westell 6100 modem was running PPPoE, but I set up as Bridge Ethernet instead. I set up our information in AirPort Utility to run PPPoE instead, and now I'm stuck. I'm trying to port forward for a Minecraft Server, if that helps, and the port for that is 25565.


The steps I've done to try to set up the port forward are as below:


  1. I've set up a static IP I believe. I've got a screenshot from the Network pane from System Preferences.Screen shot 2012-01-09 at 9.11.41 PM.jpg
  2. The next thing I've done is configure the port mappings. I have them set for the Minecraft standards, and the IP is set to the IP as above.

Any help you can give is appreciated! I bet it's just one setting I have missed... thanks for your time.
