RV042 - Port Forwarding simple issue

Discussion in 'Cisco Small Business Routers and VPN Solutions' started by Doxie, Nov 28, 2007.

    Hello,

    I have a very basic issue for which I need big help.

    Firmware Version: 1.3.9

    The current setup is as following:

    LAN IP : 192.168.0.60
    WAN1 IP : 192.168.1.5 Connected to ADSL Modem (ISP1)
    WAN2 IP : 192.168.1.65 Connected to ADSL Modem (ISP2)
    Mode : Gateway

    Setup > forwarding:

    DNS [UDP/53~53]->192.168.0.7
    IMAP [TCP/143~143]->192.168.0.7
    SSH [TCP/22~22]->192.168.0.7
    HTTP Secondary [TCP/8080~8080]->192.168.0.7
    HTTP [TCP/80~80]->192.168.0.7
    POP3 [TCP/110~110]->192.168.0.7
    SMTP [TCP/25~25]->192.168.0.7

    System Management: Load Balance

    Firewall: Disable

    Currently all HTTP traffic from WAN2 is going to 192.168.0.7

    Objective:

    I would like to have all HTTP traffic from WAN1 to go to 192.168.0.70
    and
    All HTTP traffic from WAN2 to continue to go to 192.168.0.7

    I am not clear on how to set this up. Seems like a very basic issue, but is becoming a big challenge for me..

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Thanks:):biggrin::wink:

    Have you looked over the firewall access rule settings? You should be able to direct HTTP traffic from the WANs to the appropriate IPs there. Then remove the port forward rule for HTTP (port 80) access.

    The port forward rules will override any restrictive access rule that you might set up.

    So it means that I have to enable the firewall.. on firewall page I see following settings:

    Firewall : Disable
    SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) : Disable
    DoS (Denial of Service) : Disable
    Block WAN Request : Disable
    Remote Management : Enable
    Port:
    HTTPS : Disable
    Multicast Pass Through : Disable
    MTU : Auto

    Just wondering what will be the settings after I enable firewall and how /what should I change/set at the access rule page...

    Thanks!

    just goto the firewall page then click on the sub link "Access rules" you can then setup source/destination and protocols there.

    I did, but am getting error 401 error ?

    I have allowed all traffic from Wan1 to .70 IP
     
  6. Doxie

    Doxie LI Guru Member

    Well, I am getting following error:
    Connection Refused - Policy violation

    Any clue, what could be the problem

    Are you port forwarding the same protocols to different IPs perhaps? have you tried running the wizard? have you allowed the src IP to be any?
     
  8. Doxie

    Doxie LI Guru Member

    Well

    I have firewall access rules settings as following:

    Priority Policy Name Enable Action Service Source Interface Source Destination Time Day Delete
    Hwan2 Allow All Traffic [0] WAN2 Any 192.168.0.70 ~ 192.168.0.70 Always
    Hwan1 Allow All Traffic [0] WAN1 Any 192.168.0.7 ~ 192.168.0.7 Always

    have you still port forwarding enabled?
     
  10. Doxie

    Doxie LI Guru Member

    No, port forwarding is disabled.

    I am very sorry, if I am sounding too noobee but I need help..
     
  11. d__l

    Wouldn't you just want to allow Port 80 traffic instead of Allow All Traffic [0] in your rules?

    I tried that as well, but know help..

    now I am getting connection timeout error..

    quite confused on this entire issue..

    I don't think this should be necessary but once you had your rules set up the way you think they should be, did you restart the router? The errors suggest something is awry in the settings. Maybe the changes you have previously made have confused the memory.

    I tried after rebooting, but the same problem..

    To summarize, I have following config now:

    Firmware Version: 1.3.9

    The current setup is as following:

    LAN IP : 192.168.0.60
    WAN1 IP : 192.168.1.5 Connected to ADSL Modem (ISP1)
    WAN2 IP : 192.168.1.65 Connected to ADSL Modem (ISP2)
    Mode : Gateway

    Setup > forwarding: Disabled (no entry)

    System Management: Load Balance

    Firewall: Enable
    SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) : Disable
    DoS (Denial of Service) : Disable
    Block WAN Request : Disable
    Remote Management : Enable Port:6061
    HTTPS : Disable
    Multicast Pass Through : Disable
    MTU : Auto

    Access rule settings:
    Policy Name Enable Action Service Source Interface Source Destination Time Day Delete
    Hwan2 Allow All HTTP [80] WAN2 Any 192.168.0.70 ~ 192.168.0.70 Always
    Hwan1 Allow All HTTP [80] WAN1 Any 192.168.0.7 ~ 192.168.0.7 Always

    I am still not clear where am I going wrong, I rebooted the router, tried different services, tried one firewall access at one point of time, but no success.

    Any help appreciated...

    I had forwarded the information you needed to someone at linksys. their response was unfortunately not what you wanted to here but an asnwer all the same.

    "RV042 does not support port forwarding to 2 different destinations based on incoming WAN port. Access Rule cannot be used to lift the limitation."

    Sorry to be the bringer of bad news.

    Toxic, one wouldn't ever know that from the documentation or the help pages! Do you have any idea if that limitation also applies to the RV082 and RV016?

    Toxic Administrator Staff Member

    nor me. I was hoping/guessing that the issue could be done via access rules, but I shall endeavor to i'll find out on the other RV units.

    Doxie, I'm not clear exactly what you are attempting to do. Are you simply try to direct any HTTP access from one ISP to an internal server and any HTTP access from the other ISP to a different internal server? Would the HTTP accesses be to the same web address for each ISP?

    If traffic from each ISP can use a different web address to access your servers, then maybe DynDNS.com could be used to help sort out the traffic to the servers.
