I have a Linksys WRT54G v5 router and everything works OK except I can not open a connection to my friends VPN. Does anyone have any tips? Is this a known problem with v5 of the WRT54G? I already called Linksys support and tried their suggestions, but they did not help.
Linksys suggested the following:
Cisco Interface (If your Setup page has a Cisco Logo)
- Click on the Applications and Gaming Tab > Port forwarding > Enter the ports needed to be opened > Click Save Settings
Regular Linksys Router Interface (If your Setup page has a no Cisco Logo)
- Click on the Advance Tab > Port Forwarding Tab> Enter the ports needed to be opened > Click Apply
(E.g. Given ports: 47- 47 - UDP&TCP, 50 - TCP, 500-500 - UDP and 1723 - UDP&TCP for VPN Application). For the IP address: Enter the IP address of the computer behind the router that will use the application: E.g. 192.168.1.101
Customized Port Ranges Protocols IP address Enable Application From ~ To TCP UDP
VPN 47 ~ 47 / / 192.168.1.101 / VPN 50 ~ 50 / 192.168.1.101 / VPN 1723 ~ 1723 / / 192.168.1.101 / VPN 500 ~ 500 / 192.168.1.101 /
Hope this helps.
Thank you and have a nice day.
