Your modem router needs to control the ports..
When you manually set up port forwarding you have taken away the ability of the modem to forward via upnp (only apple routers have NAT-PMP)
You have doubled up on that by using DMZ. This completely messes things up.
Are you using firmware 7.6.1 or later on the TC?
Have you put your ID into BTMM of the TC as per Apple instructions?
Try again without any port forwarding or using DMZ.. test with just the modem doing upnp.
If possible bridge the modem and use pppoe client on the TC if you still have trouble, as that makes the TC the primary router and it will then take the public IP.

LaPastenague, thanks for your comunication.
I am using 7.6.3 TC.
My apple ID is already in my BTMM TC settings.
My modem doesn't have any switch to turn on or off NAT-PMP or UPnP funcionality, but I assume it has the functionality working as it lets me do port forwarding and it even has a NAT Appications section (VNC, SSH, xbox....and lots of games but no BTMM).
I've already tried without DMZ and port forwarding disabled, still don't work.
PPPoE option would be my last option, as my ISP is not really friendly.
It is frustraiting that Apple doesn't go further with modem/router config. I understand is beyond its reach, but more help would be appreciated.
Is there any other thing I can try?... do you want me to send pics of my configuration?
Thanks and regards,

What is the exact model of your modem?
Do you use pppoe authentication in the modem.. If so you can just bridge it and use pppoe in the TC without any issues.
Apple cannot be expected to fix every modem and every ISP out there. Unfortunately networking is done is so many ways that it is impossible.. the ISP is actually the one who should help but they generally are useless.. or want you to pay for support.
Yes, send pics of the configuration.
Are you getting a public IP from your ISP? If not then none of this will work.
How are you testing access? You cannot test from inside the LAN .. you must use a Mac computer from internet access that is not firewalled.
Remember this is a two way street.. both ends have to have full access.
If the BTMM approaches doesn't work do try it manually..
There is clear instructions on the web to setup access.
You don't need to do the fancy scripting.. just setup your modem router to forward port 548 to the TC.
You don't give wan access in this case... you are accessing on LAN.
But you do need to use some more security than normal TC password.. ie use disk password.
This is proof of concept.. if this works then BTMM should work if you get all the settings right.
