    I have never dealt with ACLs before, and I am wondering if it can be used like the Port Forwarding? I have it set up but it's not working. So maybe I am doing it wrong? Here's how I am doing it:

    Service Definition
    Name: Example
    Type: TCP
    Start Port: xxxx
    Finish Port: xxxy

    Action: Allow
    Service: Example
    Log: Unchecked
    Log Prefix: Blank
    Source Interface: LAN
    Source IP: Single 192.168.x.x
    Destination IP: Any
    Scheduling: Both checked

    What am I doing wrong here? Any help here would save what's left of my hair. Thanks guys!

    According to Linksys Tech this is supposed to work for port forwarding, and is how you specify different internal servers for same-port services on dual-WAN routers. In saying that, it didn't work for me either!

    Is my setup correct?

    I've just looked and this router's ACL is not like other RV's... it makes no sense to me.

    I would think that if you are wanting to forward ports, then the source must be WAN, source IP any, destination IP 192.168.x.x or whatever your LAN server is. It's pretty sketchy and unclear with the way they have set it up, but try changing to this setup and see how it goes.

    Just punched it up with Source as WAN and Destination as my internal server IP and no dice. Thanks Linksys... something to wish for on the next firmware release?
