I am trying to forward the port 6112 on both my routers

MY PC  > Dlink DI-524 > NetComm NB5Plus 4 DSL Modem > Internet

Dlink -
NetComm -

How would I do this?

the netcom should have a port forward rule to send any traffic on port 6112 to the dlink, and the dlink should have a rule to forward any traffic on 6112 to the pc

depending on whether its tcp or udp but the session should be state tracked normally just with an extra hop in the middle, so the netcom thinks the internet is talking to the dlink on that port, the dlink thinks the netcom is talking to the pc on that port.

It shouldnt be too hard to trial and error it anyway, will be your friend.. (lets you scan a particular port to see if its open/forwaded correctly.

Netcomm is forwarded to WAN interface (give this a static address if currently DHCP from Netcomm) on Dlink.
