I use thegreenbow VPN client to connect via IPSec to my router. it works so much better than the linksys vpn client thing. according to this article:
if i am behind a firewall that blocks access to UDP 500 and 4500, i will have issues VPNing to my router. so what i think i need to do is forward UDP 80 to UDP 500 and UDP 443 to UDP 4500.
the problem is that im pretty sure the router will not route traffic to itself. i set my router's remote administration port to TCP port 81. then i set up a single port forward to forward TCP port 999 external to TCP port 81 internal (to my router's internal IP). when i type in my router's DNS name (dyndns name) from an OUTSIDE network using the following:
i get my router's setup page. when i type:
everything hangs and i finally get a timeout in my browser. this indicates to me that the router refuses to forward a port to itself. is that correct?
