    Has anyone sucessfully used the 1-to-1 NAT in the RV016?

    I have a couple of Linux Boxes running FTP,TELNET,and WWW behind a the RV016. Both boxes have been assigned Static IP addresses in the 192.168.1.xxx range, NAT enabled and configured properly (according to Linksys Chat support) yet I am unable to get to the Servers through the WAN port. I even tried isolating the network from Public domain and I still can't seem to get through even with dhcp and the firewall disabled.

    Could it be my config on the Servers? I can address them directly without the router inline (by changing the ip addresses of course).

    YES, I have static public IP Addresses and Yes I tested each one of them and yes I can access the servers without the RV016.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I've not had much success with the 1-to-1 NAT. However, if you are looking to only have a few ports forwarded...I would use port forwarding. Set up the access rules in the Firewall settings, and you should be good to go.

    After many long weeks and an exchange of RV016, I finally got 1-to-1 NAT working. I have 3 static IPs and 2 of them are NAT'd and 1 is forwarded as I still needed an IP addr so I cld get connections out on the rest of my network.

    The NATing works great, along with the firewall settings. Just make sure on the Firewall -> General tab that you have ' Block WAN Request ' disabled. After that, it should work.

    No Luck

    I have 3 units.
    1 that continuously locks up and Have an RMA for
    1 that is onsite and only working as a hub now.
    1 in the lab in an identical configuration to the onsite.

    All had been updated to the latest firmware.
    two separate occasions I even let the Linksys support agent remotely login to router to verify settings. In both cases they told me it must be my servers because the settings all look right. However if I take the router out and address the servers directly (by assigning the static ip addresses to the servers) there is no problem.

    I can't use forwarding because I intentionaly have multiple servers running the same services.

    Last chat session the tech said they were going to send me some beta firmware. That was over a month ago and I still haven't heard anything since.

    I am looking at SonicWall as an alternative.

    It's really disappointing from Linksys.

    RV016 continuing issues, linksys ZERO SUPPORT

    I've had a RV016 for 2 months, new firmware, tried all the basic settings. It works worse with 2 WAN connections active than with 1. I'd be happy with the same performeance, at times it doesn't work at all. Linksys responded ONCE to my tech support requests, telling me to upgrade my firmware, which I already tried. I'm not satisfied with this product, I am trying to see if newegg.com will take it as a return. So sad a waste of a lot of money.

    I had the exact same problem. Linksys tech support told me that it was impossible to do this configuration on any router (lie) after I managed to work through his thick indian accent. This is a bug in your firmware, and it is fixed in the 2.0.2 firmware.

    FTP to ftp.linksys.com/pub/network and get the latest rv016 firmware. 2.0.2 is officially supported by Linksys, so this should fix you up.

    Been there done that too.

    As for the Firmware I am running V2.0.3 in both units. Still no go. Could it be a static IP config problem with my servers?

    I verified the IP addresses and SubNet are in the same range. What else is there?

    Thanks for all the suggestions this far.
