Run system-config-firewall and open the ports for the services you are trying to provide.

Some modem work as router,
your may need check modem setting by access http://192.168.1.1,
found NAT Settings then set DMZ host to lan ip of the server machine.

No, a consumer DMZ settings mean you have ZERO protection between your server and the entire Internet.

Personally, I'd get a REAL firewall (IPCOP, PFSENSE, etc) and not some consumer router if you're going to make your box available to the public internet.

Hi, thanks for your replies and sorry to have waisted anyones time...i found my problem...the router and the server were pulling the same ip for some reason...i removed the router and the server was online...was not a CentOS issue
