Airport Express, iTunes streaming, and Comcast

We would have used DHCP with a local subnet, except that it makes it very difficult to use peer-to-peer apps like Jabber (needed for work) and BitTorrent. It was too much trouble switching off the local DHCP and rebooting the Airport Base Station and Express whenever we needed to use Jabber, so we were doing without the iTunes streaming instead. Until now.

Find out what ports Jabber, et al use and login to the base station and set up port forwarding (don't know what apple's nomenclature is -- it's sometimes referred to as Virtual Server) to forward those ports to the appropriate internal IP address. This has the added benefit of providing you an additional firewall for the ports you don't use.
