Ok sorry to ask another dumb question but I can't seem to connect to the SSH or the MUD from outside the local network. My port forwarding is fine DMZ host is fine and my ISP allows server/hosts. I turned the firewall off via ufw disable for the time being and firewall in the router is off for now. Any ideas on why all ports are OPEN but still closed off. I even did a port scan from www.whatsmyip.org and it says its all open. Thanks again guys.
