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.

 
 

Where To Send Press Releases

Send Article to a Friend

Where To Send Press Releases -- With the addition of Jeff Carlson as our Managing Editor, we've had to rethink our workflow somewhat, in part because we're an entirely virtual organization that has in the past relied heavily on the Telepathy Manager for internal communication. As part of that rethinking, we've set up a new address for press releases. So, if you send any of us press releases, please remove our individual addresses and replace them with <releases@tidbits.com>. We all receive press releases sent to that address, and it will be a lot easier to filter them appropriately. Thanks for the help! [ACE]
