Am unable to set up Server online.  Firewall seems to be interfering.  Using a Linksys BEFSR41 with Windows ME and Cable modem.  Also have two computers linked to router. Tried IP Forwarding and disabling WAN blocking.  Didn't want to disable DHCP because of other computer on router, (thought it might interfere).  Tried several port addresses.

On the Linksys BEFSR41 port forwarding or the DMZ are your only options. Port forwarding can sometimes be difficult to configure but provides a relatively safe way of running a server from behind a firewall. A DMZ is far easier to set up than port forwarding but exposes your entire computer to the Internet.  Zone Alarm Pro 2.6 software can compensate for that.  On the Linksys site you can download the latest update for the BEFSR41 that incorporates Zone Alarm.  Its version 1.39.4a.  That, coupled together with the Zone Alarm software, will protect your computer.

In order to get into the DMZ you must type in 192.168.1.1 in your browser.  Then go to Advanced.  There enter you systems IP address 192.168.1.100.  under the DMZ tab.  Be sure Zone Alarm is installed and that you have already upgraded to Linksys 1.39.4a.    Refer your manual and to this website.    http://www.speedguide.net/reviews/linksys/index.shtml
