Hello everybody.

 

I know it has been discussed already but I still don't have my answer.

I have all the latest firmwares. I'm running OSX 10.8.3 on my MBP. Here is the thing :

 

- Internet Box (set up as bridge) -------- ethernet ------- Airport Express 192.168.1.1 (set up as router) -------------- ethernet --------------- Time Capsule 192.168.1.2 (set up as bridge)

 

Everything is working fine except I can not access the TC from the internet.

 

The AE provides the NAT. So in the TC's panel, which is in bridge mode, the "share disks over wan" tick box is grayed.... It works if I turn it to NAT instead of bridge, but then, I get a double NAT warning.

 

I set up Back To My Mac on both the AE and the TC and on my MacBook.

 

When I'm outside, I see the TC in the Finder's "Shared" section. I try to login and I get an error.

Note that I am able to access other devices on my local network from the Internet. In order to achieve that, I redirected some port in the AE's configuration panel.

 

So, I guess that I have to redirect some ports to my TC (192.168.1.2) but I don't which ones !!! Any idea ?

 

 

 

Thank you for your help !

    You need to tell us exactly what port forwarding you are using in the Express.. if you forwarded port 548 to the Mac that could well block the TC... a port forward cannot send the same port to two destinations.. you have to rely on NAT-PMP to handle it.

     

    I think you should try, using the TC as the main router and the express in bridge.. that is a far more logical arrangement.

     

    If you are really stuck with the express in router role, remove the Apple ID from it.. so only the TC has the connection.. I am not sure it will work. You also need to remove any port forwarding for AFP in the router.

    Hi, thank you !

     

    As you said, I'm stuck with the AE as router. Removing the Apple ID from the AE sounds logical, I will try it as soon as I get to my place.

     

    Concerning the forwarded ports, here there are :

     

    XBOX LIVE (Comes from this page )

    • Port 88 (UDP)
    • Port 3074 (UDP et TCP)
    • Port 53 (UDP et TCP)
    • Port 80 (TCP)

     

    OTHER

    • Dreambox remote access : 81 TCP

     

    Actualy, on this page, you can see Apple uses ports 53, 80 and 88 as well...

    I was waiting to hear how this experiment went.. you need to tell me if that was successful or not.

     

    As far as xbox live is concerned you can just manually port forward or try using the DMZ.

     

    The ports that Apple requires may mean you run into strife.. but you must just give it a go.
