So, I have a desktop Windows 7 machine running MB3 server (with the firewall opened for it), a 2013 Apple AirPort Time Capsule, and several devices that I'd like to connect to my MB server from a different network. I've read through several threads for external configuration, but I can't seem to find similar settings in the AirPort config or exactly what to do with the no-ip web service. For starters, I appear to have three IPs for the AirPort, none of which seem to work externally (one is an internal 10. ..., and then there's two 172.71. ... IPs) when trying to access http://172.71.xxx.xxx/mediabrowser I get the error "Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to...". I've got the AirPort plugged into the university halls' ethernet port, so whatever settings they have *may* be stopping it, but I've got all my other online services to work properly.


I also have several domains registered under 123-reg, so if the AP starts walking, my ideal situation would be to map it to one of my domains (or a subdomain).


Sorry I've not provided much info, I'm no networking expert so I have hardly any idea what I'm doing when it comes to online things.


(apparently the AirPort opens ports automatically, either way, I have been able to connect to when on the same network on my MacBook, WP7 device, and Android 4.1 phone)
