Use of the DMZ is only practical to the extent you only need one port forward. Once you need two or more, you need to do traditional port forwarding. Or else have the DMZ point to the WAN ip of a secondary router, behind which are the targets of your port forwarding, and do the port forwarding on that secondary router.

Frankly, using the DMZ comes w/ some hazards. It assumes the target is using a very good firewall, and is able to filter out all the remote access attempts that you DON'T want. Remember, the DMZ allows the primary router to send *all* traffic that would otherwise be blocked, to the IP in the DMZ. Traditional port forwarding has the advantage of limiting remote access to *only* those ports you specifically authorize.
