    Anyone have any ideas on this...

    I can share screens etc when internal to my network, but when I go outside BTMM is not working.

    I see the following alert in settings under .mac;

    Back to My Mac isn't working properly because you have moe than one device on you network providing Network Address Translation (Nat). Try disabling NAT on one of those devices.

    Now the only device that I am aware of the networking doing that is my Router. Its a standard WRTG51 which I believe is supported.

    Any ideas for a networking challenged sort? Thanks

    Can you tell me your network's setup exactly?

    You may have to forward the needed ports to the machine you want to control.

    I'm having the same problem with a Linksys router with DD-WRT v23 SP2 on it. Did you ever find a solution?

    I never got it to work and I'm giving up on back to Mac for the time being, I think ultimately I will put on a Time Capsule, and since the Xbox 360 has so many issues with those, put up a seperate router for it.
