    Hi all, is it possible to set which WAN port to forward to? For example:

    2 static ips, one on each WAN port. Dual-WAN, auto-loadbalance on.

    Is it possible to run say 2 web servers running port 80. One server on each static IP. If this is possible, how would I go about configuring this?

    I know this is an old message, but I'm looking for a solution to this exact problem.

    I've got two static IP's and two servers behind the firewall. One server is my web server, and the other is a mail server. Port 80 on one IP goes to the web server, and port 80 on the other IP goes to the webmail interface on the mail server.

    Any thoughts?

    If the servers are assigned the static IPs, couldn't that be done with two access rules in the firewall? Allow Port 80 traffic from any source at any IP to the server static IPs.

    You wouldn't use any port forwarding settings at all.

    My two WAN IP's are both static, and I've assigned my server static LAN IP's. I did try setting up access rules (WAN1 Port 80 from any source > and WAN2 Port 80 from any source >, but I couldn't connect to either server.

    Once I added a port 80 forwarder to .10, I was able to get to the webserver, but obviously I can't add in 2 forwarding rules for port 80.

    I don't know if I'm doing something wrong here or if it's a limitation of the equipment. I figured that the port forwarding was the basic user's method and you could override all that with the Firewall Access Rules. Must be mistaken in my thinking here.
