Port Forwarding and Access Rules

    Hi, Everybody.
    I have problem with RV042. I used firmware 1.3.7.10; 1.3.8.x - the same results.
    When I create a new service ('Setup' -> 'Forwarding'), for forwarding TCP port 3389 to internal server; the router starts forward this TCP traffic, regardless of firewall access rules. Even I use default access rules:
    LAN to any - allowed
    Wan to any - denied,
    I can access remote desktop service (TCP 3389) on specific internal server adress.
    The chekbox, that's enable/disable created rules seems not work, too.

    Anyone knows how to solve this problem

    P.S. Excuse me about my English, it's not my native language.

    Ou, excuse me - I find solution - in firewall access rules first the service must be denied and then managed using enable / disable checkbox. When the rule is allowed, this not work

    The firewall rules will have no effect with a port forward. The port forward creates its own Allow rule that is hidden and your rules will always be afterward.

    If you want to control access and port forward then put the port forwards in the UPnP section (but leave UPnP server off). Then you can control access with firewall rules.
