I have a RVS4000, I need to run it in what it calls "Router Mode", the other mode it has is gateway mode (in which it acts like a NAT router). I have static IP addressed machines connected to this router that I want to expose to the internet. The router has an TCP/IP ACL based firewall (allowing me at add rules that specify source and destination addresses/ranges and TCP services/port numbers/ranges) which implies that I should be able to do this, but I haven't been able to get it working. Whenever I put the router in Router Mode, I can still communicate with it, but I can't get to the internet. What do I need to do?
IPs are totally fake for my protection:
Assuming that my public I.P. range is 18.104.22.168/255.255.255.248
My router WAN IP is set as 22.214.171.124 and on the LAN its IP is the same 126.96.36.199 and it is running in Gateway mode. My computers are assigned their public IPs and they can all use the internet when it is set up this way. However, when I go to whatismyip.com from any of the computers, it of course reports 188.8.131.52 instead of one of the IPs in 184.108.40.206-246 that is assigned to the machine.
Also, if I switch it to router mode while the WAN and LAN IP are set to the same thing, I can't access the router's configuration WebGUI afterwards. (I've gotten around this by resetting to factory defaults).
