      Router Port Mapping Help !

      Hi there !
      I'm trying to setup a radio broadcast from my Mac at home.
      I'm using this software called Nicecast. Software instructions tells me to do the following:

      1. Open up the admin software on your router. For an AirPort Base Station, you'll use the AirPort Utility, found in /Applications/Utilities.
      2. Find the port mapping configuration panel (which may instead be named port forwarding or virtual servers, depending on your router). In Airport Utility, select your Base Station, click Manual Setup, then click the Internet toolbar icon.
      3. Add a new port mapping to the machine on your LAN which is doing the broadcasting. You'll need to map public port 8000 to private port 8000, on the machine's LAN IP. In AirPort Admin Utility, click Add, put port 8000 in the two port fields and the IP of the machine which will be broadcasting in the Private Address field. Click Ok, then click Update. Note that this forwarding only needs to be TCP, you can leave UDP alone.

      I haven't figure where to find those settings on the router configuration page.
      I'd really appreciate some help !

      Thanks !

      Port forwarding - Open the router settings and click the Security Tab. You will need to then click the Firewall rules and Services tabs to make the entries. Have a look at - Port Forwarding Guides Listed by Manufacturer and Model for more guidance.
