Good thought and I tried that but still no go. The issue is (I think) that I can't get the port forwarding to work on the VZ router. It's extremely simple to set up on the D-Link and as mentioned, it worked until I added the VZ router ahead of it. Now I don't think I am getting past the VZ router to the D-Link at all. In other words, I think it's my inability to do something that s/b fairly simple. Sooo...back to the drawing board.
