    Hey guys,

    I got a D-Link DSL-G604T... I've configured it so my system is using a static IP, and when I tell that IP to run in the DMZ, it says it is, but I can't run a game server, which is what DMZ is supposed to let you do. Any ideas?

    the best combination of mapping the ports to your servers ip address is a DMZ config and also port forward them too.

    if you set a DMZ then it will forward all packets from the internet to that ip, so that ip would be as if it wasnt behind a router.

    that would let you host things on that computer only. and it might negate all of your port forwards, depending on the software, honestly... if your gonna host a server and you have a real router, just forward the ports you need to the computer thats hosting it yay [consumer routers crash easily so good luck unless u got some good software]
