Opening port on DMZ router behind RG
Hello all...just switched to Uverse from cable last week and so far everything is great...except for one small problem I hope someone on this forum can help me with.
With help from other posts, I've setup the RG(3801) to DMZplus my Buffalo Wireless N router (192.168.2.1). Only the STBs and phone service are on the RG subnet. All of our pc's and gigabit home lan use the DHCP service from the BWN router and it seems to work well with openDNS, game consoles and our NAS for streaming video.
The only problem I have is with a single Win7 pc that uses a static IP address (192.168.2.99) for uTorrent. I've setup the port forwarding rule in my BWN router to open a specific port so uT can connect but nothing. I've tried turning off the win7 firewall, but still no connection.
I connected the pc directly to the RG (using 192.168.1.99) and I setup a rule in the RG firewall and uT connects fine...but I really need this pc inside the home lan subnet (192.168.2.x).
I also tried the BWN router behind the RG as a LAN-LAN connection, and uT connected fine with the same RG firewall rule, but then openDNS did not work on all the other pc's getting DHCP from the RG.
So I prefer to have the RG and DMZ'd BWN router back on different subnets but I'm really stumped why the port fwd rule on the BWN router doesnt work and allow uT to connect.
Because of the static IP in the DMZ'd router behind the RG...is there something else I need to setup/configure? Or is this a double NAT limitation of the RG and BWN router setup?
I've done a few searches on this board for similiar problem, but no joy, so I apologize if this has been covered already.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
