two IPs one Router

ITatES asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-05

I would like to use the second IP available to me to setup a SSL VPN as my original IP's port 443 is being used right now.  Unfortunately I cant change the VPN settings so it leaves me with little option.

I have got the second IP from my ISP and need to know how to set it up on my router.

I have a Lynksys Etherfast® Cable/DSL Router         BEFSR41

Thanks for the quick response!

Can you suggest a model?  Or a place that I can get more info on this?  I've never worked with two Public IPs on one router before.
