    Since it is said that every port is opened through DMZ does it mean even ports for VOIP(6000~6999), Bit Torrent(3000~3999), and game server ports(10070~10080) will be opened?

    OR will I need port forwarding for those specific ports to be opened?

    DMZ will expose all of your ports...all of them That's over 65,000.

    Including the ones you really don't want to expose..unless you plan on formatting and reinstalling Windows every few days.

    It's better to open/forward only the bare minimum of ports necessary to run the services you wish.

    DMZ = De-Monitorized Zone. This means a DMZ IP isn't monitored and its has the same behaviors as the public IP address on the WAN port of the router, except its IP address is different. I usually configure my device with a DMZ mode only for some testing purposes.

    That's correct on military fields. However, the DMZ on the router has another meaning as a De-Monitorized Zone. :cheering:

    Huh...I've never ever in all my years in IT heard that name. What brand router tried to call it this? Sounds like a foreign router manual with a bad translation to English..."monitorized" is not even a proper English word....grammatically non correct.

    Google results for de monitorized zone.. 0 hits relating to computers

    Google results for de militarized zone...countless pages relating to routers and networking

    I reckoned all those demonitorized words listed on google search as shown here on a simple google search are from foreign people who don't speak/write in a proper English....grammatically non correct. :cheering:

    That is correct..you can search for any butchered spelling of a word and find results from Google...Google does not proof read text for spelling and grammar. Results will just be from websites which clearly don't have a person proof-read their content.
