    HI, my network Provider give me the private network address
    My public address is xxx.xxx.72.19.

    I would like to connect QuickVPN with my WRV200
    I talked with my provider and he can forward some ports for me.

    Could you tell me what ports my provider should forward.
    I also wants send wakeonlan signal after connect to the WRV200.

    Thanks for help.
    Best regards

    QuickVPN uses port 443 (or 60443 if 443 is used for https). it uses IPSec VPN so Port 500 will also need to be forwarded.

    your WAN address has been changed. I dont want someone hacking your WAN IP address just because you have shown it on this site. please refrain from showing your full IP address. You would not give out your postal address in such haste.

    Just to clarify, IPSec uses *UDP* port 500 vs. TCP port 500. I know this sounds like semantics (sorry Simon) but the ISP will ask this and the distinction is important. Similarly, the ports for QuickVPN are TCP ports.

    I ask my provider to forward TCP 500, UDP 500 and TCP 60433

    thanks eric, his ISP may also need to support IP protocol 51 for Authentication Header traffic and IP protocol 50 for the "encapsulated data itself since NAT seems to be handled by his ISP

    ppawlo these are protocols (50 / 51) and NOT ports

    Ok thanks. I will give it to my provider, but I think, I ask him to public IP. That will be better - I hope so.
