    Some basic info about my current network setup.

    I'm connected wireless in my apt to an airport express, that is connected through a 80ft cable to an airport extreme down in my business.

    I.E. Computer => Airport Express => Airport Extreme => Cable Modem.

    The airport express is in Bridge Mode so it shouldn't be doing anything more than propagating the settings of the Airport Extreme. The problem is, when I go to the port forwarding options in the Extreme and open up the port I want to use with the IP of the computer I want to use as a micro server, and check them on check port sites, they show the port as closed.

    The computer I'm trying to open up to use is a mac with OS 10.6.8, it has its firewall disabled.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
