    Airport Express
    Hello,

    Does Airport Express act as a router?

    I connect to the internet wirelessly - the iMac connects to Airport. Airport has an Ethernet lead to my ADSL modem.

    Thanks,

    J

    P.s: if it does how do you open ports on it.

    It does act as a wireless router. To open ports you use the Airport Admin Utility.

    In this instance it does act as a wireless router since you have your modem connected to it. It can also act as a range extender if you're using the Airport Base Station.

    Me again,

    First all of all - Thanks for all your help so far.

    I'm still having a fowarding problem. I'm trying to use Azureus Bit Tirrent client. It uses port 6881 as does most other bit torrent clients. I ahve created a rule in the firewall section and have gone into airport express adin and have used the port mapping utility to create a rule there as well where I have selected the ports to open. However my BT client still can't listen correctly and I am receiving a NAT error. If I plug my etherent directly into the Mac I get no problems so it is clearly something I am doing wrong with airport.

    Any ideas?

    J
