We have installed a cisco rv220w for a client that use to have a simple linksys router and are having some difficulties configuring it. Here is what we are trying to accomplish:
1) we are trying to see cameras at an office using the iphone.
2) with the linksys we would point the iphone app to the manufacturers dynamic dns account that was tracking the ip address at the office. In turn, the linksys had 3 ports forwarded to the camera controller. All was great.
3) we then installed a cisco rv220w and what happens is when the iphone is outside the internal network (on 3G) it works fine. If the owner comes back to the office and connects to the local wifi he can no longer connect to the camera controller. If he types in the local ip address of the controller it works fine but we can't seem to go out of the internal network, connect to the ddns server, and then come back in. This is only an issue if he has 3G and wifi on in the internal network.
4) if he's on a different wifi network and has 3G on it works just fine.
5) how can i setup the router to allow me to go outside the network and then redirect me back in with both antennas on?
Not sure if this all makes sense. Hope someone can help me out. Below are the settings we used.
Forward tcp port 81 to 192.1681.200 (controller)
Forward tcp port 41790 to 192.168.1.200 (controller)
Forward tcp port 1025 to 192.168.1.201 (ip video server)
This worked flawlessly from his iphone weather in 3G (cell network) or wifi or both.
Custom services controller1 tcp port 81 to 81
Custom services controller2 tcp port 41790 to 41790
Custom services ipserver tcp port 1025 to 1025
Port forward service controller1 to 192.168.1.200
Port forward service controller2 to 192.168.1.200
Port forward service ipserver to 192.168.1.201
We have also fiddled with different rules and no luck. Is what we are trying to do possible with this router?
One last note: we installed cisco AP-541 access points in a cluster. No settings were modified on the access points and i think they worked fine with the linksys installed but will have to check.
Tim, it sounds like you are trying to hair pin. Hair pinning is when you have a computer on the local network of the router and you try to access a resource using the public interface.
There is an open and known issue on the 184.108.40.206 trying to hair pin using a DDNS from the local network. Try to use the IP address:port number and see if it works. The RV220W has a long history of hair pinning issues. Hair pin issues were supposed to be resolved on the 220.127.116.11 firmware.
