Problem connecting/hosting games

    I am using the WRT54G as my router, currently no devices are wireless. There are 3 computers (currently) hardwired to the router. I have DHCP enabled, my primary pc (laptop) being .1 and I forwarded all the ports I needed to play Delta Force 1 (i know, it is old school). I have another machine next to me (dual boot, win98se & redhat 6 atm) that I want to put to use on the web. I can access the internet no problem, I can ping it no probs at all.

    At first, the server machine was under DHCP, but I got a bright idea to make it a static IP @ .200 because I put it in the DMZ as a host. I read that port forwarding the same ports on multiple machines doesnt work, and I have noticed it doesnt work when I tried to get my roommate's pc to play DF1 on the net (can play on the LAN no problem).

    The server hosts the game, but No One on the outside of my network can access it. The only way I can access it is if i connect to it locally. Yet, you can see it in the Delta Force Game Lobby, but if I click on it, no one can enter. I had other people on the outside try as well.

    My question is, how would I be able to play DF1 on the internet with more than one machine in my network? I know it can be done, but this is my second router config i am doing by myself, and my first instance of port forwarding and whatnot. I need some help, thank you.
    If you need to know specs or anything let me know.

    maybe you could try and turn off the firewall,in the router.

    i tried that already, and just tried it again, no luck. i am thinking about updating to 2k pro for the server, but that will not do anything delta force-wise.
    In my DHCP Client list it still says my server is .103, when it should be (and is) .200 what is the deal with that?
