I have a Netgear firewall, with a Linksys wireless router uplinked to the firewall.

I have a server with a private NAT IP address, and want to be able to access a certain port on the server from the "outside world".

On the firewall, I am forwarding port 1234 (example) to the "WAN" IP address of the wireless router, and then forwarding port 1234 from the wireless router to the server, which listens on that port.

The problem is that this doesn't work. Am I missing something, or how can I get to my server from the outside using port forwarding?

Thanks!

Have you verified the port forwarding is working from the subnet behind your Netgear and in front of the Linksys?

Truthfully, I'd put the secondary router in the DMZ of the primary router if you must daisy-chain them like that. Solves the port forwarding issue, you just configure it on the secondary router.
