Hello, We recently setup a Sonicwall behind a Verizon FIOS router. The question: Is it possible to do VPN to the SONICWALL with the FIOS Router first in the chain? WAN connections go to the verizon router, the sonicwall wan port is connected to the lan port of the actiontec router. All users point to the SONICWALL as their default gateway and all internet access appears to be fine. I guess the question is do we or can we forward what's necessary for the Sonicwall VPN to work correctly? Thanks everyone.

Yes you should be able to forward the appropriate ports to your SonicWALL. What type of IP address are you getting from the FIOS router? Is it public or private? It may be easier to configure the FIOS router in bridge mode so that the Public IP gets assigned directly to the SonicWALL that way you will not need to mess with forwarding ports from the router and then to the SonicWALL.

It's static Public IP. My concern with bridge mode was effecting the TV Guide which I have run into in the past. The FIOS has coax and ethernet. Ethernet to the WAN port. This method also allows us to keep the staff wireless devices (phones, ipad, etc...) off of the main business router. I guess it also a matter of knowing which ports would be needed for VPN to be forwarded.

The ports that will be used and forwarded from your Verizon Modem to the SonicWALL are UDP 500 and UDP 4500.
