    Im pretty sure the mistake your making is you've forgot to set your computer up with a static IP... that is a very critical step, cause, without a static IP your router sort of identifies your computer differently every time you connect. When the router doesnt identify your computer the right way it won't know whihc computer to forward the ports to.

    Then again im not experienced with the airport extreme settings and stuff, im only familiar with my DL-624... but i can assume these things are all similar throuhg out all routers.

    under Advanced>Port Mapping you can setup any port to any IP. Static IP is important but AEBS usually gives each device the same IP everytime.

    i've done the port forwarding, but when i go there, it asks me which service i am forwarding, and none of those options seem to work for a vent server. Oh btw i do always have the same ip, internal and obviously external
