Linksys RVS4000 Networking question

Ok here is the situation.

I have two servers. Each have a unique wan ip address through my isp. Each server has 2 Nic cards. one is using the wan ip address (example 75.127.208.32) while the other nic card is set for 192.168.1.4.

I have a netgear firewall vpn router handling DHCP connection to the internet through the 192.168.x.x scheme.

I want to be able to secure my servers on the front end by using the rvs4000 linksys security router. I have a total of 5 ip addresses from my cable service. I gave an IP address to the router, each server has an IP address. gateway has an IP Address. I want to be able to get into the servers from outside through the firewall. one server is for certain applications to be accessed through the internet while the other is an IIS server. I want to be able to get into each one through the firewall. Can anyone help me?

    Thats cool! thanks for that tip.

    I still need to know how to allow the connection to my servers through the firewalls for the applications. one of the apps is called expedata which recieves info from logitech pens from digital paper. the other is content central. I don't just need it for me to get in I also need to allow customers in. The way I had it without the firewall is a direct connection to the internet by way of cisco 851 (its what gives the WAN IP addresses to my servers). I want to be able to firewall those servers to prevent attacks.

It seem that your best bet would be to look into remote access programs that can be found easily on google.com. I would suggest browsing some of the options you find on there.

hint: if your looking for a no cost solution, simply add the keyword freeware in the google search bar

    on the firewall settings there should be an advanced setting called "exceptions" there you can select the programs and/or websites that you want to grant additional access.



    if my memory serves me right, the best way is to go to your wweb browser on a device that is feeding from the router via a direct ethernet connection.



    type in the default linksys ip 192.168.1.1

    username is admin and password is blank.



    if you are serious about having some input in the functionality of your network you will want to become familiar with all the tabs and available functions within your router.



    hint: dont change settings until you have an idea of what that settin does. this can be a simple process if you want to know how it works.



    good luck!



    I suggest that you begin by verifying all your systems are connected and adding ips and url that might be caught behind the firewall.

SOURCE: rvs4000 latest BETA firmware

there's a firmware update available on Linksys' site (v1.1.09). Apparently, this update fixes quite a lot. So much so, that after installing it you MUST reset to factory defaults. So, make sure you update the firmware first thing, and then reset. Don't use any old setups.

please rate this solution on how it helped.

many thanks nick

Linksys router problem


This sounds like a route problem. This can happen if the settings to the WAN are correct. If you are using a dialup DSL router check to make sure that it is connecting to your ISP. Same for a cable modem. Once you have verified that it is connected properly then set your WLAN gateway to point to the WAN IP number. if you are using DHCP for IP addressing for your wireless devices make sure that the gateway address is set correct also. Check DNS settings sometimes the ISP's DNS servers are not setup correctly or are not stable try using googles free DNS numbers of 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4

How do I configure my laptops IP address to my router to get online? I'm using windows vista. I tried a few times and I can't find the window to type in the laptops IP address. How?


Follow the following steps to change your TCP and IP Settings on Windows Vista

1. Go to the Control Panel from the Start menu.
2. Click "Network and Internet" and then "Network and Sharing Center."
3. Click "Manage network connections."
4. Choose which Internet connection you would like to change if you have more than one. Right click on it and select "Properties."
5. Click the "Networking" tab.
6. Choose Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
(Note that "Obtain an IP Address Automatically" works fine generally)
7. Click "Use the following IP Address" to enter your own IP settings.
- Enter IP address (eg. 192.168.1.125) into the box marked "IP Address, press tab "Subnet Mask" would appear automatically (255.255.255.0) and in "Default gateway." type 192.168.0.1.

To specify DNS server address settings, do one of the following:

- To obtain a DNS server address automatically, click Obtain DNS server address automatically, and then click OK.
- To specify a DNS server address, click Use the following DNS server addresses, and then, in the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server boxes, type the addresses of the primary and secondary DNS servers.(which can be obtained from your internet service provider (ISP).

Linksys NH1005 V2.2 Ethernet 10/100 5 Port Hub Router. I cant get the other computers connected to the hub to connect to the internet. I've tried everything.


Hello!

I will just illustrate on how to configure or to set the correct IP addressing;

Assuming that we will manually put IP address on each computer:

PC1:

IP Address: 192.168.1.13
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.1.1

Preffered DNS server: 192.168.1.1

***note that 192.168.1.1 is the IP Address that your ISP gives to you, so on the other computer (see below)


PC2:

IP Address: 192.168.1.18
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.1.1

Preffered DNS server: 192.168.1.1

Hope I was able to help.

Cant connect to internet after factory reset


Connect to the router's built-in web-server, and access the 'WAN Setup' page. Ensure that your ISP has handed-out an IP-address (and names of DNS-servers) to your router. Try to get it to "renew" the WAN IP-address.

Linksis router wont work help me out


First of all contact your isp and get your connection settings. If you are able to setup the router using the cd provided then good. If you are still having problems then go ahead and contact linksys (remember linksys charges for the support). I suggest get a technician to assist you in setting up.

ADSL ISP provides same address for IP and Gateway


Can you manually change the WAN IP on the router?  If so, give it an IP like 123.12.167.5 and set the gateway address to 123.12.167.1.  If it asks for a subnet mask, give it 255.255.255.0.
If she has a Linksys router, you may need to change the operating "MODE" on it.  A lot of Linksys routers have 2 modes of operation---Router mode and Gateway mode.  For her configuration, make sure the Linksys is in Gateway mode.  This will fix the NAT problem.

Cheers!

TRENDnet TEW-432BRP router cannot obtain IP through DHCP


it seems that ur PC & cable modem configuration is ok, now the problem is with ur router WAN interface configuration. the problem would be one out of 2 - first to check whether ur router wan interface is configured properly to obtain IP address from DHCP (if possible, u can give the static ip address with same series as cable modem) second to check with ur ISP.

Just a bit of explanation. E0 interface is for inside network (LAN interface). E1 is for outside (ISP or WAN physical interface). Dialer1 is for PPPoE (the "actual"/logical WAN interface). The 1.0.0.13 is ISP provided static IP address for the use of the server. This configuration example is for running FTP server, which uses the standard TCP port 20 and 21.

The LAN uses 10.10.10.0 network with 255.255.255.0 subnet for both servers and workstations. All servers within the LAN use static IP address. The router is configured as DHCP server to give out IP info (IP addresses, subnet mask, DNS) to workstations that are configured as DHCP client.

Basically I suggest that you deploy NAT (Network Address Translation) and PAT (Port Address Translation) to setup your own servers behind Cisco router. The NAT is used to translate the ISP's given static IP address to your local IP address. The PAT is used to translate TCP ports (the port 20 and 21) between the two IP addresses.

When using NAT/PAT, keep in mind that the Internet-accessible servers are seen from the Internet as their NAT/PAT-ed IP address (the Public IP address) and not the local IP address (not the Private IP address). This understanding is very important when you or someone need to test connectivity to the server and/or when you need to create filter (access list or ACL for short) to allow only certain incoming traffic from the Internet and block others.

Side Note:
For more info on NAT/PAT concept, check out the following FAQ
»Cisco Forum FAQ »NAT and PAT; Introduction and Implementations

Instruments used in this illustration are pretty much standard for running your own servers. Please note that IP addresses, username, and password are changed. However, you could always modify the configuration to suit your situation.

This sample configuration assumes that you have a block of IP from ISP. There is a dedicated Public IP address for the router WAN interface (the Dialer1 interface) and another dedicated Public IP address for the server PAT IP address. If you only have a single Public IP address for both router WAN interface and server PAT IP address, there are several ways to configure the router.

One way is to use the same command as shown in sample configuration.

view plaincopy to clipboardprint?
  1. ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 1.1.1.14 21 extendable
ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 1.1.1.14 21 extendable
This one configuration way is suitable when you have static IP address from your ISP and you know exactly what the IP address is. In this case you have the 1.1.1.14 single static IP address for both the WAN interface and Public server IP address.

When you are unsure which IP address you receive from the ISP, or when your Public IP address keep changing; then another way to configure the static PAT is following

view plaincopy to clipboardprint?
  1. ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 interface Dialer1 21 extendable
ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 interface Dialer1 21 extendable
With situation of dynamic IP address, at some point you still need to know the exact Public IP address you receive from your ISP for server connection testing and production time. To find out, you can issue show ip interface brief command on the router. You will then see the associated WAN interface Public IP address.

Multiple WAN IP Addresses with a Linksys Router


Yes, however we recommend using the following procedure is the only way you can do so without a block of IP addresses. The example below is for instances where you have multiple public IP addresses that are not in block form. For our example the ISP has given us 3 Public IP addresses. One goes to the FTP server, Web Server, and the Router. You can setup the router for whomever your ISP is. If you have a dynamic IP address and you're unsure on the setup, please see the article on setting up the router with a static IP address. If you have a static IP address please our article on setting up static IP addresses with the router, and it will describe how to setup the router with a static IP address. Once the router is setup, it will provide the 3 PC's (In our example) with internet access. The remaining two public IP addresses should be assigned to the WEB Server and the FTP server. Note - The Web and FTP servers will not be on the Local Area Network of PC-1, PC-2, and PC.
