DMZ and FIREWALL

Hello,

 

While trying to figure out why some of the ports that I had set to forward were not forwarding I did two things:-

 

1) Placed the PC that I was having " bother " with in the " DMZ " Zone

 

2) Switched off ( disabled ) the firewall in my HH2.

 

Running two different " port scan " programs from the Internet showed that there was no response ( timeout ) from my IPAddress, which incidentally, changed each time I went from " DMZ " to not " DMZ ".

 

Does this mean that the DMZ and FIREWALL on my HH do absolutely nothing ?? so it doesn't matter what setting you have.

or does it mean that the Port Scan programs are giving a false sense of security ??

 

I'd be interested to hear from anyone who has some experience of this..
