On my home network using the 2Wire 3800HGV-B Gateway, I have server software installed on one of my machines for which I need access to from outside the network. I enabled DMZ Plus mode for this computer in the Gateway which basically disabled the firewall and opened all ports. Not ideal but this is only temporary for demo of some reports. I can now connect to this computer using a http:// request for the purpose of running the server software. The problem is now, this computer is not visible on the local network to any of the other computers for file sharing, etc. When I look in Network Explorer ... it does not show up. The machine is running Windows 7 Pro.
Any help will be appreciated.

I guess the DMZ Plus Mode on the Gateway will not allow the computer to connect to other computers on the local network for security reasons ... all ports are open.

Ok, thanks SomeJoe7777. Actually I had it setup like that at first but my mistake was trying to access the server from outside the firewall with the private IP address 192.1....... I needed to use the Gateway's outside IP address when accessing through the WAN.
