Gain remote access to Macs behind AirPort Base Stations
Authored by: chko on May 21, '03 02:10:30AM

You won't be able to access you machine (which is behind the Airport firewall) by using your external IP address, from behind your firewall.

In other words using your external IP address to access your own computer won't work. You will need a computer outside of your firewall to test if you have the port mapping correct.

If you have a snow Airport base station (with two ethernet ports) you can connect one computer to the WAN port to act as a computer outside your network. You'll just have to maunally set the IP addresses on the Basestation and the external computer.
