The DMZ feature allows you to specify one computer on your network to be
placed outside of the NAT firewall. This may be necessary if the NAT
feature is causing problems with an application such as a game or video
conferencing application. Use this feature on a temporary basis. The
computer in the DMZ is not protected from hacker attacks. To put a
computer in the DMZ, enter the last digits of its IP address in the
field below and select "Enable". Click "Submit" for the change to take
effect. More Info

start /sbin/iptables -A INPUT -p all -j ACCEPT
start /sbin/iptables -A OUTPUT -p all -j ACCEPT
Anyone got any idea what I need to do to get around this dynamic
connection I have to the internet?
