I was using a virtual machine to test the vpn, that was a mistake, since my modem had no physical interface for the virtual machine, it assumed it was on port 2 and gave dmz access to port 2 while my physical computer containing the virtual machine was on port 1, after wrtitting my virtual machine to a physical unit, and configuring DMZ the vpn started transfering.
