Zoom x3 / Netgear FVS318... real pains!!!

Crickey I'm stuck. In order to use the FVS318 to setup a VPN between work and home's I swapped out the alcatel modems (supplied with BT) for Zoom x3 modems so they'd have RJ45 out....

I'm having problems getting the X3 to act as a bridge. I can connect the X3 with NAPT and DHCP.. which will then connect to the FVS318.. but because the X3 is NAT'ing, etc, I can't drill a hole for VPN or indeed open up a DMZ on the local network. HELP!!!

I've tried Zoom, I've tried netgear, I've tried loads of different options and now I'm trying the down on my knees, please help me, someone approach.

Has anyone managed to do this at all?

I just set up a VPN between to sites over a cable modem... don't know if you want to go my route though...

We used a Cisco VPN3015 at the server end... and a Cisco VPN3005 at the remote end.  Total cost, about $12,000.

BUT... i got it to work.  It was certainly different.... the tunnel came up right away (I was sitting at the remote site, dialed into my RAS server at the other site with my laptop, so I could configure both at the same time.  A GREAT time saver).

Routing was an issue, though... seems the router that was also plugged into the same network was routing stuff the wrong way until I got my route tables fixed.  <Sigh>
