I want to set up port forwarding on a setup with two routers. I've done lots of googling and research already, but can't seem to put the pieces together. Here's my setup:
Two Computers (One on Windows, one on Linux) --> Speedstream 2604 Router --> Speedstream 5200 Router --> Internet
I started by going to Advanced -> Virtual Servers on the SS 2604 router and enabling port forwarding. (Same port #s on external & internal - is this right?). I then tried to set things up on the Speedstream 5200 router, as per the instructions on this site:
but it wouldn't work for me anymore. (Note: I followed these instructions before I added the second computer and they worked fine.)
Basically, it keeps telling me "User Failed" and I can't access the port forwarding configuration options at all.
Is what I've attempted correct? Am I missing some crucial step here somewhere?
The above site also mentions having to disconnect the computer from the first router, connecting directly to the second router, port forwarding it. And THEN connecting it back and port forwarding the first router. Does that solution make sense? I'm kind of afraid to mess with this configuration since I finally got it working.
Thanks for any pointers!
