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

Dear Assistants I have a router linksys compact wirless - g broadband router. model number WRT 54GC ver. 2 and i have a problem with it I cant find anywhere the WAN MAC Adress of the Linksys What to do???...


The Linksys has a device MAC address and the router issues IP addresses to the computers that are connected to it.
There is no WAN MAC address. Your ISP issues to your cable or DSL modem an unique IP address and you connect this modem into the WAN port on the Linksys router.
You enter the routers configuration address -
http://192.168.1.1
and login and configure the router.

MY LINKSYS WRT54G2 IS OK BUT CAN'T FIND SERVER.


The Linksys WRT54G2 is Cable/DSL router with 4 port switch. It has many features including a built-in DHCP server. By default, it's IP address is 192.168.1.1, username: blank and password: admin.

Plug in the Modem to the Linksys router's Internet / WAN port then plug your PC's to any of the 4 ports (1,2,3 & 4). The Linksys router once turned ON will automatically provide your PC with IP address starting with 192.168.1.xx (x means number from 100-149).

Make sure that known working ethernet cables are being used. Check your computer's IP adress by going to the command prompt. Start>RUN>type CMD then press Enter. Type IPCONFIG and check the IP address (e.g. 192.168.1.100). Check you PC's network adapter if you don't get an IP address from the Linksys router.

You may opt to reset the router by pressing the reset button at the back for 30 seconds if it fails to give out DHCP.

Cheers!

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.

We have a RVS4000 router, and have just moved our DNS hosting of our website to another service and everyone else can see our new site except us here in the office, we have reset the router and have...


Try this. At a command prompt, type 'ping www.mydomain.com' without the quotes and sub your domain for 'mydomain'. see if it resolves to an IP address or fails to connect.

If it resolves and you get 4 results, the problem is on your end. Place the IP address in your browser's address bar and nothing else. Example: 209.191.93.53 will give you www.yahoo.com. This bypasses the dns server of your provider and your cache. If the IP address gets your website, then clear your temp int files and cookies. Also check that your firewall will let it pass, windows and antivirus.

If the ping test fails, then the problem is that your service provider has not updated his dns server to pick up your new IP address. This will probably cure itself in 48 hours.

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.

Linksy router


a DNS server stands for domain name service. The DNS server translatesnames from IP addresses. The internet sees IP addresses such as 209.235.250.53 but the DNS server provided by your ISP translates it for you into fixya.com. You should be able to aquire the DNS server information from your internet provider (ISP) hope this helps.

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.

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.
