    If I do as the thread title says and uplink from the DMZ port of the RV016 to the SR224 switch, will all ports on the switch then be in the DMZ (i.e. outside the firewall)? I need to set up several VoIP phone adapters, all of which I would need outside the firewall...

    Yes, and you will need a number of pubic ip addresses for the phones you plan to install in the DMZ.

    OK, that won't work then - I still want them NAT'ed, just not behind the firewall to avoid problems with the VoIP.

    What is my best option? Is there a way I can just open up ports on the RV016? Regular port forwarding won't work, because I need it going to all 10 phone adapters, not just one...

    Also - does the firewall on the RV016 block incoming and outgoing traffic, or just outgoing?

    It should only block unsolicited incoming traffic unless you set up firewall rules to pass specific types of unsolicited incoming traffic (or port forward that traffic) or you set up firewall rules to block specific types of outbound traffic.
