Hello guys. I want to do port forwarding on my PC. as i want my server to connect my pc. Say the port is 5000. how is it done. Other thing is i have messed with the the router ip i.e 192.168.1.1There i disabled the DHCP and now i get a new IP i.esomething like 167.252.128.16 and when i use this in browser to open the settings with default username password i.e admin/admin it deny the access. Please help me guys. I am using windows XP sp2. One more question what is DMZ for.Okay now what happened here is that i have used the reset button provided over the modem. I did a reset. Now when i do ipconfig at command prompt it shows all setting of ethernet adapter local area connection as 0.0.0.0

^ ignore this if you knew it before : port farwarding - MT841

after the reset , are you able to reach 192.168.1.1 ?

DMZ is demilitarized zone used in networking .
it is not safe to use ...

Hey seshu thanks for replying bro. The guide says that i need a static IP for port forwarding. Which i guess i dont have. There is a guide to setup the static ip... what you think it will work?? Can i have a static ip. by just doing that. If i got a static ip it means that i can host any website on my system.

Thats right you enter the IP Address of the server which should be Static and not an IP address which is dynamically assigned by the router.Something like 192.168.1.250 make sure this IP address does not fall into the range of IP addresses set on the routers DHCP server.
