Problem Communicating bidirectionally bewteen the two RVS4000 routers

Unanswered Question
Aug 29th, 2009

Initial setup with Router2 connected to the cable modem with WAN=56.xx.xx.xx worked well. When second RVS router, Router1, introduced for an ecommerce application, communication between the routers does not work. Also, the 192.168.1.0 subnet is not able to access the Internet nor remote connections able to reach destination in this subnet.


Any help will be much appreciated in resolving this problem.

Hello Chris,

I've never worked with RVS, however some notes follow and should apply:


R2 should have a default route pointing to R1 ip next-hop address


R1 may need to extend the NAT definition to include R2's client subnet before passing traffic to cable modem router



Hope to help

Giuseppe
