For Falcon = between the two Korea's :rofl:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demilitarized_zone

 

For the router = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demilitarized_zone_(computing)

 

In a nutshell, you effectively put your PC infront of the router (PC gets the external IP address), so everything hits your PC from the interweb.

 

Preach

Hi, Well putting your PC in a DMZ is Somewhat Dangerous and NOT reccomended. If you would like to get your Ports Forwarded I can help Both of you..

 

I need to know some Info about your Network like are you on DSL?? If so What is the make & Model of your Modem?? Do you have a seperate Router if so what is the Make & Model of that..

 

Also more than likely you will need to setup a static IP (if your Router needs it to be) and when you pick a Static IP it needs to be Outside the range of the routers DHCP Start & End IP.

 

Port Forward is Possible in most any router it is just getting it setup Properly is the key ;)

 

you can find a Guide on How to Setup Port forwarding at PortForward.com Which I am an Admin. but if you like I can help you here or there.. http://www.portforward.com

 

If you post at PF.com let me know you are from Combat ace, If you can Post a link to your Thread..
