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.

You will receive an email message with a freshly randomized password. After logging in with that password, you can change it to something more memorable. (If you also receive email about Take Control ebooks at this email address, requesting a new password will also reset the password for accessing your Take Control Library, so you'll want to update your password manager for www.takecontrolbooks.com too.)
