      OK Ticked DMZ for 192.168.0.2, and the only firewall I can see in airport is IPV6 so I added the same address as the DMZ and added the transimssion port?

      Hope this is right, you guys have done in 5 minutes that has taken me 5 weeks.. lol

      Thanks

      You should explain how your network is setup

      This is how i would setup the network in a simple manner

      Sky router dhcp server + dns server + default gateway wireless disabled ip 192.168.0.1

      Airport extreme any sort of routing / dhcp disabled and just acting as an ap
      with its ip as 192.168.0.254

      then i would check that the qnap had a default gateway to the sky router
      and not the airport

      then if upnpd ever causes problems you could just forward a port from the sky router
      to the qnap bypassing upnp
      dmz is a bit dodgy as you are opening it up to the internet on every port

      lol. Delete that.

      The firewall on the airport extreme is on by default and is quite secure in my opinion.

      For your port mapping you just need to make sure that NAT-PMP is enabled on your airport extreme. This is the equivalent of UPNP and should take care of all the port mapping for you. However if you feel it is not doing a good job you could:

      - Set up a static ip address on the computer you use for your transmission downloads.
      - Use this ip address to set up port mapping manually using the port number.

      But if you don't trust the airport extreme with the firewall you can do what Shonk says. It all comes down to personal preference really.

      Maybe this thread should be re-titled and a quick apology posted by the OP?
