Cisco RV0xx Firewall Problems

Hi Experts!

This is driving me mad and i cant find any help via Google.

We are replacing some of our old Linksys Routers accross our sites as we have upgraded our Internet sand the Linksys cant actually pipe that fast.

We have replaced with some Cisco RV042's and various others of the Small Business Range.

Most of the sites are fine as they have no incoming connectivity other than a VPN Link. The firewall simply is blocking everything. Some sites have kit on site so need various ports opening.

I have been trying to get the firewall to work on this routers and just cannot seem for some reason get it to work.

I setup a test bed, and still no joy. Attached is a screenshot of the firewall rules. It looks right to me but none of the specified ports will open. Its not an ISP issue as it works fine with the old Linksys Router back in place. I have also tried on different RV's and on differnt sites. Same issue. Ports just dont seem to open.

Firewall Rules
Anybody shed any light or point me in the right direction?

Cheers

Hi Salah,

Sure its as follows:-

ISP ----> Cisco RV042 (Using PPPoE) ----> LAN Clients on 10.1.xxx.xxx /24

Basically i just need traffic from outside to hit the devices on the Inside using the Ports Specificed. Only Problem been the Ports dont seem to open up even though they have been specified in the firewall config as you can see from above.

Cheers

Hi,

Did you try the rule using WAN1 or WAN2 instead of ANY?

Hi Salah,

I think i have figured this out. For some strange reason on the Small Business Kit you use the Port Forward Optuion. Not the Firewall.

Bizzare way of doing things in my opinion.

Cheers For you help though. You knid of pointed me in the right direction.
