I have recently replaced a WatchGuard Firebox SOHO 6 with a Linksys 4 Port Router Mod: RVS4000 because the WatchGuard was becoming unstable.
I set up the new router with all the settings from the previous equipment, which included forwarding port 7000 to a specific IP.
This port broadcasts images from a surveillance software installed on a computer with a static IP (the computer runs on Vista).
In order to view the broadcasted video on another computer, I use a proprietary software not a web browser.
So far, I tried single port forwarding without being able to view the images and range port forwarding with the same result.
I spend over an hour with the Business Tech Support from Linksys without success. They even remoted into the device and found nothing suspicious.
Currently the router runs on firmware version 1.2.11 and the Tech Support people suggested upgrading to a newer version.
I'm concerned to do so because I in read other postings that I can run into a bigger problem (i.e. bricking the router).
Finally, other ports are being forwarded (i.e. port 3389 RDP) and it works fine, so at least I know the forwarding feature is working properly.
Can someone shed some ligh as to what to do next?
Needless to say, everything was working fine with the WatchGuard Firebox and no changes in equipment, IPs or other software/hardware have been done.
Thank you in advance fro your help.
