I seem to be having an issue opening up ports on WAN side for services running the router. I have installed transmission and twonky and they are accessible just fine from the LAN. However, I have tried both using IPTABLES command and using TomatoUSB web UI to open a peer and rpc port for transmission and a port for twonky browsing and according to canyouseeme.org none of them are open. I have Qwest DSL and noticed in my "modem" there is also a port forwarding section and I have forwarded ports in there as well. However, still I can see nothing. I have seen some issue with port forwarding on recent tomato usb builds due to firmware issues. I am running the latest build. Is anyone else seeing issues or have ideas on how to fix this?

Port forwarding to the client machines running behind the router is not the same as opening ports for applications running on the router itself. Searching the forum could have helped:
Don't forget to either put your modem in "bridge" mode, or put the Tomato router in the DMZ of your modem (and don't use any modem' port forwarding).
Also, when checking the port being open via canyouseeme.org make sure you have the process(es) running that will actually respond on that port.
Putting the router in the DMZ of the modem did the trick. For whatever reason looks like the port forwarding on the modem was not working. Thanks for the help.
