I am trying to get Openfire running at home and I have had success with it on my lan at home. I want to make it open to the outside world but I have a port forwarding problem. I have an ActionTec MI424-WR from Verizon on my Fios circuit. I have 5222 and 5223 (TCP and UDP) forwarded to the system with Openfire on it but it will not connect. If I put the ip of the server in the dmz it does work but that is not ideal. I do not want to manage the server when I am not home so 9090 or 9091 are not needed. The router does not allow me to call out XMPP as a protocol. When I have the server in the dmz port 5222 does not show up when I use nmap, it does not show up when I scan on the local network either. That leads me to beleive it does not answer an nmap scan. Is this a protocol issue or am I missing another port I need to open? I have looked at the FAQ for ports and that did give me some info but not the answer.
