Asante router --> Airport Extreme --> Cube I have already created a no-ip account. What are the network settings on the cube? I understand that I must set the cube to a fixed IP and use the Airport Admin utility for port mapping. When I do this, however, I am not able to access the Internet on the cube. What about settings for my router? All help greatly appreciated.

What you want to do is this. You are using a router, and its WAN port has some IP address -- assigned by RCN. It might change over time, but we'll deal with that later. For now, let's pretend RCN never changes your router's IP address. On the router, you want to set up what's called "port mapping." Say your Cube is at local IP address 192.100.0.50. You would teel the router than any traffic for port 80 on the WAN IP address should be mapped to port 80 on the Cube's local address. That will allow the outside world to access your webserver. Now what to do about the fact that RCN may change your IP from time to time? There is a clever site called dyndns.com. You set up an account with them and call it whatever.dyndns.com. Then you periodically run a litttle program on your computer that tells dyndns.com to map whatever.dyndns.com to your current IP address. That way your users in the outside world always access you as whatever.dyndns.com, even though your IP address changes from time to time. I'm not sure you would be setting up the port mapping on the Airport. Your Airport base station is already behind your router, the rest of the world can't see it.

You want to set up the Airport as a pure bridge, and set up the port mappings in the router. -- Matthew T.

    Default Setting up Apache with OS X 10.2.8, cube, AirportExtreme, cable modem and Asante router

    I want to configure Apache on my cube. I can access the files on my
    internal network, but not via the Internet

    My config:

    RCN cable modem --> Asante router --> Airport Extreme --> Cube

    I have already created a no-ip account.

    What are the network settings on the cube? I understand that I must
    set the cube to a fixed IP and use the Airport Admin utility for port
    mapping. When I do this, however, I am not able to access the Internet
    on the cube.

    What about settings for my router?

    All help greatly appreciated.
