Thanks for adding one more relay.

It's ok to have 2 relays on one IP address, both should work.

What do you mean you have enabled DMZ and port forwarding?

If you enable DMZ, that will forward ALL ports to 1 IP address in the
subnet (NAT). You cannot enable DMZ on 2 different internal IP
addresses in the same LAN. Also, if DMZ is enabled one time, port
forwarding for the second IP won't work since all ports are already
forwarded to the DMZ host.

Use static internal LAN IP addresses for both relays. IP1 for relay1
and IP2 for relay2. So after a power cutoff everything will get back
online with the same IP config and port forwards will work.

Forward port 443 to internal IP1
forward port 80 to internal IP1 (if you also use DirPort)
forward port 9001 to internal IP2
forward port 9030 to internal IP2 (if you also use DirPort)

Examples are informative, use whatever ports you want/can.

Let me know if it worked.
