RVS4000 and Port Forwarding

    I have a network with a DSL Modem, a WRT54G for wifi, and then a RVS4000 for the Routing/Gigabit functionality.

    I can't get the ports to forward, mostly because I can't get the RVS4000 to authenticate. Verizon and Linksys are blaming eachother - how could I go about doing this really?

    I was going to use the RVS4000 for the VPN purposes, but I'm starting to change my mind. Might it be easier to just use the WRT54G, since most machines connect to a seperate gigabit switch anyways?

    What are you trying to forward and which device are you trying to forward it on? The asking reason is this, if you are trying to initiate connections from the outside, 1) your isp will have to allow the traffic 2) you will have to forward that traffic from the wrt if it is terminating on the RVS 3) if terminating on a host inside the rvs you will have to also forward it from the rvs to the host ip.

    Yeah I am trying to forward RDP from the outside to a server. I forgot about including the forwarding through the WRT54G though, that may be the step I missed.

    Thanks and I will check/report back.
