Is there a way to use the command line interface to turn off the DMZ feature. I am currently at a remote site with access to SSH command line and I need to know if there are commands to do this. I do not have access to the web interface.
If you want/need to avoid using it as a socks proxy then you can use remote forwarding to forward port 8080 to 127.0.0.1:80 (router's port 80) and then go to 127.0.0.1:8080 (PC's port 8080) in your browser to get tunneled to the router.
Otherwise you'll have to learn iptables or change the nvram variables and restart the firewall service... _________________ Read the forum announcements thoroughly! Be cautious if you're inexperienced.

Thanks a lot phuzi0n, this was great information. I am not familiar with iptables or nvram so I appreciate you taking into account my noobiness.
One more thing, your answer solved both of my problems, the one I caused by enabling DMZ, and the original problem which was how to access a web server at home without making it public, and without the use of the VPN server.
