I am trying to access the sql 2008 server installed on a windows 2008 server, using an application. The windows 2008 server machine has a static IP, and I am able to access when I used the DMZ on the router, but I heard that it is not that much secure way to access the server DMZ, so I have decided to access it using port forwarding, which is very new to me. So please could you help me how to do that. I have attached the screen shot how i did port forwarding, but it is not working out for me.
Thanks in advance.
