There is a default deny rule that is on. Turn it off.

What do you need the firewall turned off for, exactly?  If it's just for one machine, I recommend you put the machine's IP address into the DMZ.  This will "disable" the firewall for only that IP address.

Like I said, try putting that IP address in the DMZ in the router configuration.  It should be in the firewall settings somewhere.
