VPN Plus Server in RT2600ac behind Cable Modem

Unread post by Palrouter » Sun Sep 16, 2018 11:35 am

Until last week I used RT2600ac as Router behind a Cable modem.
I used VPN plus (SSL-VPN) to access secure Internet in open Wifi networks with my iPhone.

But last week after a thunderstorm my Cable modem died and i got a Cable-Router instead.

From that time on i had to switch RT2600ac to Access-Point-Mode.

Now i am struggling to re-enable VPN plus to access secure internet from external.

My trials to "Port-Forward" the used VPN-port inside the cable router to RT2600ac failed.

Which ports do I have to forward in my CableRouter to use "SSL-VPN" in VPN plus on RT2600ac ?

Other solution could be to "bridge" the new Cable-Router.

By Access Point mode, you lose several options of your Synology router.
Other work arroudn could be " NAT behind NAT" (both routers their own sub-net).

As for port forwarding "SSL-VPN", depends totally what you have set as for port to use.
Look into VPN plus, what you are using for it. (I thaught default is 443, but me myself have changed it to 442,
as I am also using a web-server ----> port 80 and 443 as a de facto standard in general for this kind of web-use).
RT1900ac / DS213j / DS415+ / DS218+ (at different locations).
