I unboxed my RV016 yesterday hoping to replace a SmoothWall 3.0 Router and achieve stable VPN tunnels to RV042 routers out in the field. I have created three VLAN's thus far and have a VPN tunnel to a remote site setup and the basics are working well.
The Smoothwall had 4 network cards in it and was configured as follows:
Red - dynamic IP w/ DynDns Host connected to Cable Modem
Green - my "safe" network 172.30.250.0/24 (now VLAN1)
Purple - my "gamer" network for the kids 172.29.250.0/24 (now VLAN2)
Orange - my "work on infested client computers" DMZ type network 172.28.250.0/24 (now VLAN3)
On the smoothie I had defined a pinhole (port forwarding) between Purple and Green to allow for a remote desktop connection to my main workstation on the green network (I changed the default port from 3389 to 2278).
I don't see a way to define pinholes with VLANs in the RV016 so I thought a workaround would be to go out and come back in. In an attempt to achieve this I configured a firewall rule as follows:
Service: RDP 
Source Interface: WAN1
Destination: 172.30.250.254~172.30.250.254 (my workstation on VLAN1)
When I try to connect, it bounces back fast (usually indicating a denial). Any ideas why this might not be working?
PS: Firmware 126.96.36.199-tm
I know what the issue is. Set the rdp up in port forwarding, instead of using an access list. That way it will forward the rdp request directly to the computer behind the firewall. Set that up in the port forwarding tab.
