Ok, I have not been lucky enough to open port 22 to configure a specific IP to work properly. I have tried every option I could think of. I have been able to set up a port forwarding port 22 to work on a much simpler system (not linksys) but with the RVL200 it has proven difficult. Using Static IP. Gateway and DNS servers established. The router is configured for the ISPs information. The DHCP client is up to allow all users to obtain an IP automatically. The internet works fine and the majority of the other router features seem to work fine. I have set up port forwardig for the IP address and port 22. I have told the firewall that the IP and the port (service management) should be LAN/WAN. tried many different configurations. Anyway, I have tried multiple configurations to open port 22 but no luck not mentioned in this initial thread. Ask me and I will tell you if I did that or not. I do not want a DMZ opened for security reasons so this is not an option at this time. Contacted tech support twice and it was escalated to a higher tech level. I have yet to receive a return call or actually speak with an advanced tech. Please provide some insight thanks.
