    Hello all you wonderful Mac people who help us lowly mac dumbies. :)

    My goal is to be able to port forward 5112, because I want to be able to invite my friends into a warcraft 3 game. I think I need to make myself a static ip, but I'm not sure I even need to do that. I am looking for step by step help and i'd be pretty sure you can't assume I know anything.

    I am using an Imac with version 10.5.8
    I am using a Time capsule airport extreme router

    Each time I try to find a way online describing how to do this, they are always using a different router and I get screwed up. I know very little about what I'm actually doing.

    Thanks for any and all help!
    Roon

    Okay, something like this

    1) Open Airport Utility
    2) Select Manual Setup
    3) Go to Internet, then DHCP
    4) Click the + button below the DHCP Reservations box, enter the MAC address of your mac and give it an IP address. e.g. 192.168.1.5
    5) Click on the Advanced tab, then the Port Mapping tab
    6) Hit the + button
    7) In the 4 spaces labeled Public/Private UDP/TCP put the number 5112
    8) In the Private IP Address space, but the IP address you chose in step 4, e.g. 192.168.1.5.
    9) Click Update
    10) Done

    doesn't seem to match

    The number I found there doesn't seem to match the format of the number the first replied ask me to find....

    00:00:aa:00:00:00 is the format I found there.
    The first reply said I wanted something more like
    121.12.11.21

    thoughts?

    What step are you on?

    On step 4, but the MAC address in the top box (labelled MAC Address) and there should already be 4 numbers in the bottom box (labelled IPv4 Address). It is these numbers that you need later in step 8.

    I think I get it...

    I'm putting the numbers formated like
    00:00:aa:00:00:00 into that Mac address spot....? Then, I'm using the lower numbers in step 8....?
