I have a client site where we are setting up a VPN tunnel using a Linksys BEFVP41 router directly off the cable modem. Then behind that I have a Linksys WRT54G router setup to allow wireless connectivity. I can perform remote management functions on the BEFVP41 router by entering the external IP address of the router and :8080 (Such as http:\x.x.x.x:8080
). I then get the web based software management screen where I enter my user name and password. All works well.
But I also need to perform remote management on the WRT54G wireless router behind the BEFVP41 VPN router. I assumed that if I changed the remote management port on the WRT54G router to 8081 I could access by entering the external IP number of the BEFVP41 router (such as http:\x.x.x.x:8081
). No success. I even tried entering IP forwarding on the BEFVP41 router table to route any port 8081 activity to the internal LAN address of the WRT54G router (192.168.1.2). The BEFVP41 router uses 192.168.1.1 address. Again, no success.
Can anyone tell me how to access the WRT54G router for remote management functions in this configuration? Thanks.
