BGW210-700 IP Passthrough and Default Server mode not working as expected

I put my BGW210-700 in IP Passthrough mode with a TP-Link AX3000 router behind it. I disabled Wi-Fi and Firewall Advanced settings. I also disabled the Packet Filter settings. The AX3000 is the only client for the ATT box. The setup works fine except for one thing that doesn't.

I still need to do port forwarding on the ATT box for Remote Desktop (TCP/UDP: 3389) then again port forwarding on the AX3000 router to reach the computer I want.

I tried changing to Default Server instead of IP Passthrough but no change. I cannot reach the computer from WAN without port forwarding on the ATT box. 

Why is not working?

1) I would not use default server.

2) You do not want to set up port forwarding on the BGW210.  IP Passthrough will pass the traffic through to your TP-Link.  Then do Port Forwarding in the TP-Link.  If you set up both IP Passthrough and also try to port forward on the BGW210 it will confuse the issue.

"You do not want to set up port forwarding on the BGW210.  IP Passthrough will pass the traffic through to your TP-Link." - is not passing the traffic through this is what I am saying, I have to forward the port on BGW120. This is what I am asking, why is not forwarding it since is set in IP Passthrough?

Do not bother with Hometech.

Post screenshots of your set up and your tests.  Mask any IPs you don't wish to publish to the Internet.

Does your tplink show the same ip address as the gateway?
