Hi everyone, I have a Linksys BEFDSR41W which is a combined router / adsl modem and wireless access point all in one. This device works great but I have only just been playing around with remote access. Basically I have written a basic server in Java and I have been running this server on a machine inside my LAN. I can access this server from any of the other computers within my LAN and it works great but I just cannot gain access to the server from outside my LAN when I use the external IP address. I have tried to setup port forwarding on my router to port 11, which is the port im running the server on but that doesnt seem to work. Further more whenever I setup port forwarding my whole internet connection seems to go down!?! I went on to try using the DMZ host option but that doesnt seem to allow access into my LAN either. Ive turned off firewalls where ever possible so I just cant understand whats going on. I really want to access my server from outside my LAN. Any tips, advice or pointers would be gratefully received. Thanks Trev.
