Back to My Mac

Post by von » Wed Aug 27, 2008 4:46 pm

Ever since I installed Ooma I am having a problem using Back to My Mac,
My setup is Cable>Ooma Hub>AirPort Extreme..

I get the message:
Back to My Mac isn't working properly because it requires a router that supports NAT Port Mapping Protocol (NAT-PMP) or Universal Plug and Play (UPnP). Make sure your router supports one of these protocols and that it is enabled.

It worked before I installed the hub..

Any suggestions??

Because you placed your Ooma Hub BEFORE the airport, the Ooma HUb now acts as your router.

2 things you can do...1) place the Ooma hub AFTER the airport or 2) assign (on the Ooma hub) a DMZ address and make the airport address DMZ mode...

Note: 2 is a bit more complcated
