    Cannot access Tivoweb or telnet outside router...

    I have two tivos, a DTV S1 and an HR10-250. The S1 is set for DHCP and when I set the router to open the ports 80 and 23 on it's IP, I can access tivoweb and telnet by typing in the WAN IP in a brower and telnet respectivly. The HR10-250 has a static IP of 192.168.2.50. When I set the router to open the two ports on it's IP, I get nothing when I type in the WAN IP in a browser, I get nothing. When I type in the local IP of 192.168.2.50, the page comes up. My rc.sysinit.author for the HR10-250 is as follows;
    #!/bin/bash

    #load usb and ethernet modules
    insmod /lib/modules/usbcore.o
    insmod /lib/modules/ehci-hcd.o
    insmod /lib/modules/ax8817x.o
    sleep 15

    #configure Linksys USB200M
    ifconfig eth0 192.168.2.50 broadcast 192.168.2.255 netmask 255.255.255.0
    sleep 60

    #start telnetd
    tnlited 23 /bin/bash -login &

    #start ftpd
    /var/hack/tivoftpd.mips
    Please help as I need suggestions to get this working.

    P.S. I know the security threat and will worry about securing it after I get it working.

    You are missing the route to your default gateway.

    #!/bin/bash

    #install usb and ethernet drivers
    insmod /lib/modules/usbcore.o
    insmod /lib/modules/ehci-hcd.o
    insmod /lib/modules/ax8817x.o
    sleep 15

    #configure Linksys USB200M
    ifconfig eth0 192.168.2.50 broadcast 192.168.2.255 netmask 255.255.255.0
    route add default gq 192.168.2.1 netmask 0.0.0.0 metric 1
    sleep 60

    #telnet
    tnlited 23 /bin/bash -login &

    #ftp
    /var/hack/tivoftpd.mips

    # Call the Tivo Package Manager Startup Scripts
    /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.tpm
    It still doesn't work. Any more suggestions or mistakes I may have made.

    It that's a cut and paste of your rc.sysinit.author, then you have a typo on the route line.

    If not, You should look at your router config.
