Got this device. I am not sure if I can bridge to another device such as router or VPN appliance. Is this possible? Can I open ports if I am stuck with using this alone?

As far as you know, the 2210 is pretty much the same as the 3360 in regards to functionality?

Portable, direct connect server access

The ATEN CV211 connects a laptop directly to any server allowing you instant access to perform data maintenance and local operations, for quick troubleshooting, updating, service and repair.

I have software manuals for Netopia 3300 series with v7.5, v8.5 and v8.7 firmware... do you know what firmware the unit has?

Here's the Bridge/Router instruction page for v8.7... is that what you're seeing in your motorola?

You eitherbridge the modem or you bridge the router.  Not both.

Actually, a router is a bridge with network address translation (NAT).

I will bridge the modem to a VPN device. I would then need a set of static IP addresses for a DSL account. One for the modem and for the VPN device , correct?

Nope.  You only need one.  The valid static ip address will be bridged to the VPN device.

The equipment is at another location so I havent got to get chance to begin connections. You are saying the dsl modem in bridge mode is nothing more than a modem without any associated IP assigned to it? Interesting....

That's correct. Just like a layer 2 LAN switch doesn't need an IP assigned to it or any of its ports in order to pass traffic back and forth.
