DMZ is an easy but dangerous tool. It basically forwards all TCP/UDP ports to the appointed IP address' device. Make sure you properly secure the pointed-to device since it's "naked" in the  internet without any NAT / firewall protection by AT&T router.

Instead, figure out which VPN service you need to use. For example, if you want to have L2TP/IPSec pass through, typically you need to forward UDP port "1701, 500 or 4500". If you want to use PPTP, forward TCP "1723". If you want to use OpenVPN, forward UDP "1194". These are the default ports of the VPN above use; of course you can change the port to whatever you want for security purpose, and make sure you change the VPN server side and VPN client side software too.

Hope it helps!
