Also, if you designate your computer to the DMZ of the router/switch that would 
be equal to having all your ports open. In other words, it is like not having a 
router or firewall at all which will make you vulnerable to attacks. Only one 
computer can be put in the DMZ at a time.

Time to open the manual. Look perhaps to a feature such as IP/or port
forwarding.

First question is, what router are you using?
