New RV042 router with latest Firmware update installed.
Two restaurants on the same LAN subnet, one POS terminal PC at each restaurant for on-line resrvation system.
LAN connection allows each restaurant to view reservations for the other.
Comcast ISP with Static IPs and Comcast/SMC gateway in bridge mode (Comcast Gateway WAN IP = 50.###.###.134, LAN IP = 192.168.10.1).
LAN port 1 on Comcast Gateway connected to WAN1 on RV042 (WAN1 IP = 50.###.###.133).
LAN port 2 on Comcast Gateway connected to WAN2 on RV042 (WAN2 IP = 50.###.###.132).
RV042 LAN IP = 10.1.10.1.
Restaurant A POS PC IP - 10.1.10.201 (static).
Restaurant B POS PC IP - 10.1.10.202 (static).
OpenTable online reservation system needs 5 inbound port ranges forwarded to each terminal PC for the OpenTable interface.
For Restaurant A OpenTable sends to 50.###.###.133.
For Restaurant B OpenTable sends to 50.###.###.132.
We setup RV042 Firewall "Access Rules" specifying the appropriate source interface (WAN1/WAN2) with source set to ANY and the appropriate destination (10.1.10.201/10.1.10.202) for the 5 port ranges (so 10 rules in all, 5 per restaurant)
However this is not working for either restaurant.
OpenTable cannot interface with the termianl PCs on the specified ports.
If we add the port range forwarding under the "Forwarding" section of the RV042 setup (which limits us to seting it up for only one of the restaurants) the OpenTable interface works for the one restaurant.
I pretty sure on this model router we can't specify the inbound port address to be forwarded from specified WAN port (it's catch all). It doesn't give us the ability to choose this in port forwarding or Upnp forward. Now if you can separate the ranges that needs to be forward to each server say SERVER 1 1000-1005 and ports 1006-1010 to SERVER 2.
if you are needed to specify which wan port on your fowarding then you'll need to move up to a different router.
Yes, I would like to know this answer also as I have the RV042 and a situation where I need a computer inside the firewall to specifically use WAN2 where all the other computers need to still use WAN1.
