These are instructions on how to use port forwarding and forward a port on your Airport Extreme Base Station.

Step One
Launch the AirPort Utility from your Applications:Utilities folder.


Step Two
Select your Base Station from the list on the left and then click the Manual Setup button.


Step Three
Click to select the Advanced tab from the top of the Manual Setup window.


Step Four
Click to select Port Mapping from the top of the Advanced Settings.


Step Five
Click the + button to add a new port forward. The plus button can be found under the list of existing port forwards.


Step Six
Enter the settings for the port forward rule. The public ports are the ports that external computers will use to connect. The Private IP Address is the IP Address of the computer in your network that you would like the public ports to forward to. The private ports are the ports on your local computer that you would like the public ports to point to. ie so an external computer could think its connecting to port 80 on your computer but the router would resolve it to a different port of your choice.


Once you have inputed the correct settings for your port forward rule, click the Continue button.

Step Seven
Enter a description for your port forward rule.


If you like you could enable Bonjour to broadcast the rule globally but we will leave this alone for now.

Click the Done button to save your new rule.

Step Eight
Now press the Update button at the bottom right hand corner to update your router with the new port forwarding rule. Please note this will reboot your AirPort Extreme Base Station!

Thank you so very much. It helped me configure my AE for VoIP. Before I could only make outbound calls.

Okay so for those who still need help: How would I allow others to see my personal web space (sites folder) from the Internet when it\'s behind the router and my machine tells me the sharing address is http://10.0.1.200/~user? THANKS for any step-by-step help. I think I\'m close here...
