RV042 VPN and firewall?

Unanswered Question


I have RV042s here that connect networks via IPSEC tunnels. I'd like to use the RV042 firewall to control in- and outbound network traffic to a subnet. But it seems that I cannot apply firewall rules to traffic that comes in via the VPN tunnel (IPSEC1 interface)? Is this a known limitiation? Are there any workarounds? Or am I doing something wrong?



I have this problem too.

RV042 Access Rules cannot be applied to VPN traffic. This router assume the remote subnet is fully trusted. This is a common limitation in the small business routers.
