I have 2 RV042's with a VPN tunnel connected between them. The tunnel works fine, I can copy files, map network drives.. however I cannot ping from one subnet to the other. Also I want by default there to be no internet access of anykind . I want to specifcally open ports for ranges of IP's. So I made a rule denying everything, and then created rules for the ranges I want. All the priorities are correct yet it doesn't work. Once I make a rule saying deny, it doesn't matter what i do, nothing will open up. Any Ideas? Also, Why does the firewall apply to the VPN tunnels?! I want it to be a Virtual Private Network, not two networks connected through a firewall.
