Why do you think your computer needs to be in the DMZ?

Perhaps if you explained what it is you're trying to accomplish, we may be able to help you.

I've never heard of roblox.......what is it, what does it do, and why does it need to be in the DMZ?

Its a game.

inneed you have to be pretty ignorant to want to give someone your routers account and password. You clearly have no idea what the results would be.

Can you say getting hacked? Can you say losing your parents bank accounts/personal information?

So this means you going to have to exercise those brain cells and do this yourself.

You need the following:

identify your brand and model of router. google search and find its manual.
read the manual on how to configure a dmz port.
connect your pc to that port.

walla you are done!

Just to add to what wanderer said, if you're looking to run the game as a server and have people connect to it, you don't actually need to put it in the DMZ.

You can do this by creating a port forward on your router. To make a port forward and set your game up for remote access you need the following information:

- Port the game runs on
- LAN IP of the computer running the game server

Then you access your router's management interface, find the area where you configure your port forward and set one up like the following:

forward [port #] to [LAN IP of server]

Then, you need to find out your external (internet) IP address (easy enough, just gooogle "what's my IP") and give that to whomever is going to connect to your game from a remote location. If your forward is setup correctly and your game is running in server mode, they should connect right to your game.

Why don't you look at this page first. You don't really need to use DMZ. DMZ is a last chance sort of way to get stuff to work in an emergency.

http://wiki.roblox.com/index.php/Fi...

Both your firewall and router may need to be adjusted. Keep firewalls and router protection on as much as you can.

*sighing*

Again, it's nice you're trying to help but you really don't seem to know much about networking.

DMZ is a last chance sort of way to get stuff to work in an emergency.

Really!?

Do you actually know what a DMZ is and what it's used for? It sure doesn't seem like it with this statement. A DMZ has a very specific purpose and is used by pretty much most any company/business (if not "all") that has outward facing services like web sites that need to be separated from the internal network.

Why would some normal person buy a device to protect their lan and then fully disable the security features? No professional would do that. Not one with any proper training would suggest running in DMZ. A professional would read the instructions I sent to fix the issue properly and leave the nat and port forwarding on.

It is a common remedy when connecting two of anything to a game site to put one in the dmz since you can only forward the ports to one ip address in soho routers.

So what you're suggesting is to keep internal hosts on the same network as your publicly accessible hosts? So what happens when that public facing host gets compromised? The attacker is now already inside your internal network and game over.

You should probably do some reading on basic network zoning.

I don't keep my lan at all on the internet. I don't use DMZ since I read the helpful instructions that tell me in this case I don't need it. DMZ is for poorly written games or for people who are just too lazy to read and configure.

Did you guys even read how the maker of the game suggests you get it to work? If you did then you would have known DMZ is not needed.
