View Full Version : Dlink dsl-504t dmz problem

06-10-2007, 12:27 PM
I have a Dlink DSL 504t set as and a server with NIC I want to allow all traffic through to the server (so the server can handle filtering) but when I try to enter in the DMZ setting the router reports "Invalid IP, range". Setup works fine otherwise and can pinhole ports to but want to open all ports to the server. Any suggestions why can't be DMZ'd? DLink support have failed to find an answer so far!
BTW, have downloaded latest firmware.

Well as it says the range is -

You have to give it an ip of + (not, which is why its saying invalid ip.

Its below the range it accepts.

Change to or higher (BUT below

Thanks for the reply Speedy but I had worked that much out for myself. The question is why is not valid. As this is a common setup across a number of sites I don't really want to change the ip address. Any reason why can't be DMZ'd?

No, but thats what the router said didnt it??

Its invalid.

Like what you said in the first post.

Invalid IP, range

The range means just that. The ip has to be within that range.

I would say, you've got no choice but to change it,or it'll never work.

We cant change it, we didnt make the router.
