I have my cable modem>ooma hub>Dlink DGL-4500 Wireless Router. The OOMA works great and I am able to connect to the internet with all my devices that are connected to the router.
The problems I am having is as follows:
1. I am not able to connect to my home server outside my network. Before I had OOMA I could do this
2. My Utorrent says my port is not forwarded. However in my router settings I have set up port forwarding.
I got into http://www.setup.ooma.com and try to forward the ports but I get the message The Forwarding Address must be on the Home subnet.
Can someone please explain to me what I need to do to get the port forwarding set up correctly.
I would appreciate any help provided.
I have bittorrent client so I need port forwarding. It worked well until I hooked up ooma. I have DSL>modem>ooma>router>3 home computers.
Before ooma, and still, for all the computers I set up a fixed IP address called the "gateway" as 192.168.1.1 and subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
My individual computers are set with fixed IP's as follows, and the router is set with the fixed IP's and associated ports as follows:
Comp.- IP Address - Port
Dadi - 192.168.1.123 - 54771
Momi- 192.168.1.124 - 54772
Kent - 192.168.1.125 - 54773
My router is set for WAN type = PPPoE, and LAN IP is 192.168.1.1 (same as gateway on each computer). My router and network is hard wired.
So how do I get my port forward to work again?
In Aveamantium post it says "put the IP address that the ooma assigns to the router in ooma's DMZ". in ooma advanced settings there is "Home port" and "DHCP Config.". Is one of those the "IP address that the ooma assigns to the router"?
Configure the ooma hub dhcp server to issue exactly one IP address (start and end the same address) and then put that address in the ooma hub DMZ location.

What about moving ooma on the other size of my router and using QoS. Would that be less work?
So is ooma a router of sorts with one port? So I have an ooma router, then my regular router in series after?
If ooma works for you in this postition then all should be well for everything else.
Ooma should have a thorough discussion of what to do if you use port forwarding, like for bittorrent. It should use the exact names of the ooma hardware on-line setup dialog box item descriptions so a dummy can do it.
It is very common to get confused when multiple routers are in play. Especially when devices include a router and people aren't aware of it such as DSL modems which are actually routers.
When you say "put your router in the Ooma Hub's DMZ", does that mean to put my routers address in the Ooma Hub's DMZ. And the Ooma Hub's DMZ is input in the text box in the Ooma setup dialog box? And is my router address the same as the gateway address?
I heard DMZ is unsafe, but can I assume using DMZ is safe in the OOma, as long as my router does not use DMZ. so my router protects my network?
