I have a modem-router from my ISP (in UK) this is a Technicolor TG582n, and a D-Link DIR-615 router. These are connected via cable, cable ends in the 'Internet' port of D-Link.
I connect via Wi-Fi to the D-Link, which is needed because of wireless connecting and reliability and internet sharing issues using only the Technicolor garbage.
I would like to host a website and SQL Server at home for experiencing. My OS is Win7, but at the end I would like to use a guest VMWare virtual machine as the server.
I got no joy. Routers' firewalls are disabled. I tried many things, port forwardings, DMZ, simplify things. That's a bad experience: I also tried connecting via cable a PC with Win 7 OS, set up IIS, directly to the Technicolor, and that time I also tried everything I could (port forwarding, DMZ). I tried to reach by IP, and specific ports, like 8060-8090... I got a success by www.canyouseeme.org, but that's all... P.S.: I tried allow the ports on windows firewall, even disable it. With no other (or disabled) firewalls.
I would appreciate any help, especially from someone who has achieved the same. 2 routers seemed to be the difficulty but after I also got no result with the most simple architecture, I'm really sad.
