iChat AV Can't A/V chat when set up as DMZ Host

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
Last night I was trying to audio chat, and I kept getting some message about a network timeout while trying to connect. I had successfully done it before, and I realized the only network setting I had changed was that I set myself up as the DMZ host (that is, all external requests, regardless of port, are forwarded to my machine) on my Linksys router. When I removed the DMZ host setting, it worked perfectly.

Anyone else have any similar experiences? I'd really rather not have to go manually forward HTTP, FTP, and SSH ports to my LAN address. It's much simpler to use the DMZ host feature.
