I'm configuring a RV042 and have some questions;

1) Do I understand correctly that PAT rules (created under uPnP) bypass the firewall rules? I need to filter some PAT connections on originating IP and that does not seem to be an option. I tried creating a firewall rule for WAN->LAN to the internal IP configured in the PAT entry but that does not seem to matter, I can connect anyway. Is their a way to accomplish this?

2) QuickVPN does not seem to work for me I get an error and no connection, yet the management webpage of the RV042 shows this user as connected?

Log shows:

If I understand correctly the missing server certificate should not keep you from connecting, you just can't validate the connection is to the correct VPN server. The subnet I'm connecting to is different from the subnet I start the VPN connection from.


Thanks, Peter

Re: RV042 PAT & VPN

Here you can find an example about how to add access rules on top of a port forwarding rule.

For the QuickVPN issue, it's more effective if you could call the Support center for assistance.

Meanwhile it's useful to see the VPN logs on RV042, and know the internet connection type of the RV042.

Re: RV042 PAT & VPN

Thanks, I'll have a go with the rules and post the VPN logs ASAP.
