    I've just purchased an RVL200 so that I can access my home LAN via SSL from the Internet.

    I am BTInternet so my primary WAN Router/Modem is a BT HomeHub.

    I've plugged the RVL200 to a switch port on the LAN and set the LAN IP address to and can access the RVL200 quite happily from the LAN.

    But not the WAN!

    I've set up port forwarding to the RVL200 for port 443 on my BT Homehub and tested connectivity using the external IP address and it doesn't work. I've tested similar connectivity to my FTP server (also on port forwarding) and it's fine so know I'm doing the right thing here.

    So I'm confused at how I should connect/configure the RVL200 for this type of operation. I suspect it's a IP gateway address issue but I need some help.

    I cant find any info on the internet that goings to the detail I need to setup:

    (1) Am I correct that I only ned to physically plug connect the RVL200 to the existing LAN via one of the 4 ports ie I dont connect to the LAN viathe WAN port too or instead?

    (2) What do I need to configure on the RVL200; both WAN and LAN IP addresses or any other. I'm convinced this is a Gateway address issue (as it works with LAN address etc) but I cant see how to fix.

    I would appreciate any help/advice you can provide.
