    Hi all,

    I'm a new member here! Greetings to everyone!

    I just bought a RV042 for my company. I have installed it and it runs well.

    But yesterday I just found something that I can't access webiste with 'https' like banking website or gmail or yahoo with secure connection.

    I have updated the newest firmware. I have reset it couple of time.

    Serial Number : DHY006105812 Firmware version : (Dec 23 2005 10:09:32)
    CPU : Intel IXP425-266 DRAM : 32M Flash : 8M
    System up time : 1 Days 18 Hours 18 Minutes 33 Seconds (Now: Sat Apr 15 2006 08:20:29 )

    If I disable the firewall option, I can access those website.

    Is there something wrong with my configuration? Anyone can help? Forgive my English :)

    Go to the Firewall Tab. Click the "General" link. Uncheck the "https" radio button. Click Save Settings at the bottom of the page. Then go to "Setup" tab, Click "Forwarding" and add the ip address of your https server. Make sure you check the "enable" check box before you add it to the list. Don't forget to save the settings.

    does this mean that I have to put every HTTPS server I want to access in the list?

    Like I have to put gmail.com, then yahoo.com, then every banking website I used?

    Here it works out of the box.
    No extra settings or something else.
    But do you use a proxy/extra firewall ? Because https is a connection on port 443 instead of normal port 80.
    Sometimes this one is blocked due to company regulations to avoid encrypted communication also when you use a proxy, https communication normally don't use the proxy so you have to configure your clients with https to reach directly the Internet or install any kind of redirector for this.

    I think the problem is afaik, when you have two internet links using both WANs, it looks like it doesn't know which one to use for https.

    On our RV082 I have set up protocol binding to send all HTTPS traffic to a single interface when it is used in load balancing mode. Couldn't find any other way of making it work reliably.

    Not sure if that is possible on an RV042 though :-(

    No. I can connect to the HTTPS websites when I changed the RV042 with a Mikrotik RouterOS. So I'm sure that nothing wrong on the ISP side :)

    I'm only using a single WAN here.

    my thought

    I had the same issues, i couldnt get to my bank. I could log into gmail but couldnt send an email or microsoft udpates. When trying the the microsoft updates and when it failed it gave me a coded. After further reading and etc.. found out my issue was my MTU size. I have it on a DSL connection, i played witht he MTU and when it was around the 1450 point, i was able to get all websites. I put it back to auto to double check and yep i couldnt access them anymore, but once put back to 1450 i was good. I also have the https turned on cause i use the vpn. Just thought i would share.
