Improve Apple Services with AirPort Base Stations

You can make iChat file transfers, iDisk, and Back to My Mac work better by turning on a setting with Apple AirPort base stations released starting in 2003. Launch AirPort Utility, select your base station, click Manual Setup, choose the Internet view, and click the NAT tab. Check the Enable NAT Port Mapping Protocol (NAT-PMP) box, and click Update. NAT-PMP lets your Mac OS X computer give Apple information to connect back into a network that's otherwise unreachable from the rest of the Internet. This speeds updates and makes connections work better for services run by Apple.

Roizen Leaves Apple -- Heidi Roizen, Apple's vice president of Developer Relations, has announced she'll be leaving Apple on 19-Feb-97 to commit more time to her family. During the last year, Heidi implemented wide-ranging changes in Apple's developer support and vastly improved communications between Apple and software developers. Her contributions will be missed in the developer community, and we hope Apple is able to make good on her example. [GD]
