RV042 Firmware Version: 126.96.36.199-tm
I've configured my chat application, Trillian, to receive incoming files within a port range of 26500-26599. Since I use port 5190 (ICQ) to connect to the chat server, I set my trigger port range from 5190 to 5190. I set my incoming ports to 26500-26599. I've had several routers over the years and I've configured each of them identically as I have with the RV042, but it's not working with the RV042.
When I examined the firewall log, it shows up as "Connection Refused - Policy violation" and shows the port that's supposed to be triggered open. I even tried to disable the firewall setting, but that didn't help.
I can open the ports 26500-26599 explicitly, and that works, but it limits me to using only 1 machine. Again, I've done this configuration a few times before on other routers, including Linksys brand, but I've never run into this problem.
I would be curious to see if anyone successfully uses port triggering as I feel it might be a firmware issue. Any insights would be helpful.
