    I have a RVS4000 router.
    I have just got 8 RIPE addresses I want to setup on the LAN side of the router.

    How do I configure the router to forward traffic from the WAN side to the LAN side?

    Hope to get some help.

    Best regards, Brian

    Your device should do "port redirection" meaning you could set port 80 for your external port and (for instance..) port 8484 as your internal port for a webmail server and then you could access your webmail from anywhere in the world.

    Is this what you're referring to my forwarding WAN traffic to your LAN traffic?

    No, it is not port forwarding I am looking for.
    I have 8 public addresses that i need to access from outside. My setup is:

    WAN address:
    LAN addresses: (
    On the LAN side the router got this addr:

    My ISP is forwarding all traffic to this space: to and it's now my routers role to accept incoming traffic and hit the correct addresss on the LAN side. And here is the problem...

    Do you also use a private LAN subnet in addition to the routable IPs? If so then add a routable IP as a second IP to each desired server and then add a static route (at the router) for each IP pointing to the private IP that is holding the routable IP. Then setup the desired firewall rules. I do this on RV016/082 where One-To-One NAT wouldn't work such as in your case.

    If you are only using routable IPs on the LAN side then you don't need to do anything except setup appropriate firewall rules and possibly set to router mode instead of NAT.

    As pablito has said, you need to determine how many hosts you are going to have on the lan and what they are going to be doing. Once that is determined if its less than 8 your configuration will be much simplier and there will not be much you have to do, if you are doing to be running more then 8 hosts on the inside your config will be somewhat more complicated but nothing that cant be readily explained.
