Cisco Routers :: How To Manage Port 80 Hosts Via Gateway To Gateway VPN (rv220w)
Aug 30, 2012
I replace our aging rv082 routers with wireless rv220w routers. The gateway to gateway vpn works great, however I am no longer able to manage our print servers port 80 management page. I can ping any host with success, and I can manage hosts that have a port 10000 or 8000 web interface - but no port 80 ones... I had no issues when using the old rv082 routers...
I picked up a pair of RV220W's and before I spent loads of time at a remote site, I figured I'd go through some VPN testing at home to make sure I could get it setup properly. What this means is I've plugged the Internet uplink into a switch, then from the switch into both routers & configured them (using unique static IP's for each) from there. For what its worth: While I have some IT experience, I don't have strong networking experience.
I setup several VLAN's on the local RV220W, and the end result is to make it so that an asset at the remote site with an IP in any of the ranges (192.168.121.0/24, 192.168.131.0/24, 192.168.141.0/24 and any future VLANs) can communicate with/access resouces at the local site. Likewise, an asset at the local site with an IP in any of the ranges (.121, .131, .141 + any future VLANs) should be able to reach the remote resources (currently just 192.168.181.0/24, but future VLANs as well).
This evening I tried to focus on the relevant VPN pages of the Administration Guide to get the VPN up. Leaving the defaults I got as far as establishing a link between both sites and it seems that things are working right: From the remote site (.181) I can access the local site (.121, .131, .141); and from the local site I can at least ping resources (a laptop) on the remote site. (Yay!)
However, when I physically connected an asset that had a 192.168.121.X, 192.168.131.X and 192.168.141.X IP addresses to the remote RV220W (which is 192.168.181.0/24), I couldn't see it from the remote or local sites.I assume this is expected. But I'm reaching out to the community to see what other possibilities might be available becuase networking is a weak area for me. I figured it might be something like a Static [or Dynamic] Route but I really am not 100% sure.
Local Router LAN/WAN Settings: LAN IP: 192.168.121.1 on default VLAN (1) VLAN 13 defined 192.168.131.1 with DHCP enabled; Reservations created outside of DHCP scope VLAN 14 defined 192.168.141.1 with DHCP enabled, Reservations created outside of DHCP scope Inter VLAN Routing enabled for all VLANs
I have created a connection gateway-to-gateway between RV220W and RVL200, is doing without any problems.For example, I can ping the gateway on the other side. But when I connect trough RV220W QuickVPN (or PPTP) I can not reach the gateway (RVL200) or any host behind it.
I spoke with the Comcast gateway support team and they changed my SMC router to the straight gateway/bridge option. If I plug directly from my laptop to the SMC, I have internet connectivity. So I know that aspect is working. I have a Cisco RV220W router that I want to be between the internet/SMC gateway and my network. For the life of me, I cannot get the internet connectivity to pass through to the router. I've done the proper power on order numerous times. Tried variations just for the heck of it. And nothing. Am I missing a step? If I do the "wizard" on the router, it basically tells me it sees no gateway even available even though it is clearly there and plugged into the WAN port. I don't see any option in the router settings for me to specify like the DHCP server I should be reaching out (if there even is one). My understanding is I shouldn't need to as the router should just recognize it. Should I be using a static IP instead?
I've just set-up one of the RV220W VPN solutions. This worked fine for a while, but now it reports the remote gateway is not responding. Other clients can connect, but not the computer I'm using at home. Log file reports:
2011/08/31 21:10:31 [STATUS]Success to connect. 2011/08/31 21:10:31 [STATUS]Tunnel is configured. Ping test is about to start. 2011/08/31 21:10:31 [STATUS]Verifying Network... [code]...
I've tried the most common stuff. Enabling ICMP, checked that remote administration runs on port 443, changed MTU to 1400 manually, It allows fragmented packages too. Checked that IKE and IP Sec services are running. I've also tried both with windows firewall ON and OFF. A colleague of mine had the same problem in the same time frame as me, but after a while - he suddenly was able to connect. I still can't!!
I've got two RV082's connected. Each has a dynamic IP (changes typically every few weeks). I've configured the tunnels on both ends with a local and remote "Remote/Local Security Gateway Type" of "Dynamic IP + Domain Name(FQDN) Authentication".If I look at the VPN Summary tunnel status, it shows an IP address of "mydomain.dyndns.org 0.0.0.0" under the "Remote Gateway" column heading. The Tunnel Test "Connect" button is N/A.I can resolve both of the mydomain.dyndns.org entries on both sides of each VPN using the Diagnostic DNS lookup tool within each router. If I hardwire a fixed IP address for the Local and Remote Gateway everything works just fine. VPN is good.
I just can't seem to get the "mydomain.dyndns.org" function to work. It appears the router can't resolve the dynamic IP from the domain names on each of the routers.
Can I have use a Gateway-to-Gateway IPSec tunnel whereby a user can surf the Internet using his local Internet connection and at the same time connect through the IPSec tunnel to a remote subnet using RVS4000 routers?
I have two Cisco RV042 Routers, they are being used to connect two offices, i have created a standard gateway to gateway connection, fixed public ip addresses on both sides and everything works fine, except when the tunnel gets disconnected, it does not connect back automatically, i have to log into either router console and click the connect button to get the tunnel working again, this is really annoying since it happens once or twice a day at least.
New hardware here, requesting a bit of your knowledge, We are tryingin to setup a simple gateway to gateway VPN
HomeA Has an RV016 with a public static IP Local Group Security Gateway type is IP Only with the IP Local Security Group Type is Subnet, with the local IP class 220.127.116.11 Remote Security Gateway Type: Dynamic + Email Email address email@example.com Remote Security Group Type: Subnet IP Address 192.168.1.0 IPSec Setup as default with nice password.
HomeB has an RV082 with a dynamic ADSL link Local Group Security Gateway type is DynamicIP +Email Email address firstname.lastname@example.org Local Security Group Type is Subnet, with the local IP class 18.104.22.168 Remote Security Gateway Type: IP Only Remote Security Group Type: Subnet IP Address 192.168.0.0 IPSec Setup as default with nice password.
The idea is for HomeB which has a dynamic IP, to reach HomeA, which has a static IP and connect. But they just wont. I have not clue what's wrong, I followed the instructions, maybe i miss interpreted something. I could share the VPN logs for both., Im getting a lot of errors there.
I have a pair of RV082 routers and I'd like to configure gateway to gateway VPN tunnel as described in a cookbook, "How to configure a VPN tunnel that routes all traffic to the Remote Gateway," (file name Small_business_router_tunnel_Branch_to_Main.doc). I followed this cookbook and found that my while the Main office has internet connectivity, the branch subnet doesn't have internet connectivity.
Routing does behave as advertised, where all traffic does go to the main office. However, the 192.168.1.0 subnet in the branch office does not get internet connectivity. I've read in other posts that the Main office router will only provide NAT for the local subnet, not the branch office subnet. Is there a way to configure the RV082 router to provide NAT for all subnets?
If not, which Cisco product will provide the VPN Tunnel connectivity as well as the NAT for all subnets? Can the RV082 be used as part of the final solution or are my RV082s a wasted expenditure?
Following is the configuration that I'd implemented, (real IP and IKE keys are bogus).
Gateway To Gateway Remote Main Office Add a New Tunnel Tunnel No. 1 2 Tunnel Name : n1-2122012_n2-1282012 n1-2122012_n2-1282012 Interface : WAN1 WAN1
I am trying to set up a gateway to gateway VPN connection between a RV042G (central site) and a RV110W (newest firmware) which is used for presentation purposes on various customer's sites. The RV042G has a static IP. The RV110W has different IPs, depending on where it is used.
Basic VPN settings are clear to me (we have another VPN between two RV042G with static IPs). I set up the VPN connection on the RV042G wth the following settings for "Remote Group Setup":
Remote Security Gateway Type : IP + Domain Name (FQDN) Authentication IP by DNS resolved: mydomain.no-ip.org Domain Name: router12345
The value "router12345" is what I have configured in the RV110W as "Host name" in the network settings.
This configuration does not work so I am obviously doing something wrong. Do I have to use "router12345.mydomain.local" instead if I configured "mydomain.local" as the domain name in the RV110Ws network settings? For my tests the RV110W has a WAN-IP of 192.168.178.100 because it is located behind a DSL-Router. The external IP of this DSL-router is 178.0.x.x. The resolved IP from mydomain.no-ip-org is 192.168.178.100 but when I look in the RV042G log I see the requests coming withg the external IP (178.0.x.x). Is this the problem? The last message I see in the log is "no connection has been authorized with policy=PSK".
Or can I use "IP + Email Address (USER FQDN) Authentication" instead (where can I enter this email address in the RV110W?). Or do I have to use "Dynamic IP"?
I exchanged a RV042 v1.2 (Firmware 1.3.13.02) by a new RV042G v3. (Firmware 4.2.1.02).
My problem is now the following: The old RV042 established the Gateway to gateway VPN connection as soon as an IP- address of the remote location was requested. The new RV042G stays on „Waiting for connection“ all the time and does nothing at all. The connection works by clicking „CONNECT“ or by ticking Keep-Alive in the advanced tunnel settings but NOT automatically as before. Is this a firmware issue or have I to configure something additional?
Why it makes problems to use a default route on a BGP-router (cisco 6500 with sup720 3bxl).Only a very few amount of hosts have that kind of problem and the 50% paket loss is only between this hosts. So another host has no loss to any of the affected hosts. looks for me like there is a problem in the CEF-table.The router has a BGP-fulltable. The gateway of last resort is only set for cases like a flapping BGP-route, so that the traffic is sent to a default next hop, because sometimes he knows a better route which isnt flapping.
I am just setting up a simple scenario with a 1841. Server @ 172.31.1.1 cannot ping 172.31.0.254 or 172.31.0.105. It can ping 172.31.1.250. The router can, on the other hand, ping devices on both networks. This is just for testing routing theory so I don't know why hosts on either side of the network cannot ping each other.
I am only using the FastEthernet interfaces on Router 1841.
anything I put into my hosts file, will not go through the Cisco RV220W router. This is part of the set up:
192.168.1.10 << RV220W 192.168.1. 15 << A client machine 192.168.1.99 << Internal DNS with forwarder to OpenDNS (22.214.171.124 & 126.96.36.199) + a laptop that's not on the internal network at all.
Now, the client machine and the laptop both have an entry in their hosts files: 188.8.131.52 insight.hello.com
From the laptop, I can both browse to insight.hello.com, and I can ping it in Xterm.
From the client machine (192.168.1.15) which is behind the Cisco Router/FW, I can ping insight.hello.com, but I can not browse to it. This is especially strange since the ping goes through the Router every bit as much as the http traffic does, so why is the router giving me a DNS error on that, but the ping goes through just fine?
The hosts file is supposed to supercede any other information from anywhere, so it out to not be a problem for the router either. Yet, it obviously is.
I have tried to disable the internal DNS server as well as OpenDNS and just run the ISP's DNS servers, but no change - I still get that blue DNS error screen from the CIsco router.
Above IP's & hosts are fictitious.
The hosts file doesn't get blocked in a sense, but what happens is that if you have "Content Filtering" checked - even without any rules - the router can not verify that 184.108.40.206 is in fact insight.hello.com in this case, since it doesn't exist in the public DNS system.
So, I unchecked Content Filtering and now it works as it should.
I recently swapped out an RV082 with a newer model (still RV082 but black and a different interface). I configured the Gateway to Gateway VPN exactly as it was before but none of the three other RV082's will connect. I have tried deleting the connections several times to no avail. I have aggressive mode disabled and have tried with the firewall on and off. Below are the settings (IP's have been X'd out) and the log.

We have a VPN setup between two Cisco RV082 routers, the VPN status shows as connected however I can't ping the other network. I am unable to ping between routers, let alone ping computers behind those routers.
We have 2 branches, branch 1 is on a static IP and branch 2 is Dynamic. I am able to connect via QuickVPN from Branch 2 to Branch 1 and remote desktop to computers, however have yet to VPN/remote desktop in the opposite direction.
To me it seems like a firewall issue at branch 2, but what's causing this. Also they are currently running 2 differnet firmware version not sure if this would cause a problem.
i am trying to setup a vpn Gateway To Gateway when i setup the vpn i can ping the 2 rv042 i cant see any computer in the network places when there comect we need to see the computer in the network places so are pos will run?
Just bought 3 WRVS4400N, I wanted to setup gateway to gateway VPN. I followed the instructions on the WRVS4400N admin guide and VPN does not connect. I also downloaded the VPN setup wizard and that also did get the gateway connected. Everything seems to be correct. Do I have to enable anything else? Firewall setting?
Below is my config.

I have an RV082 and a RV042. I have been able to successfully establish a gateway to gateway vpn connection between them both, and I can remotely administer each router through the VPN connection, but I am unable to ping computers from one side of the connection to the other. For example, a computer in the 10.10.1.0 subnet can't see / ping / communicate with a computer in the 192.168.1.0 subnet.

Can a router using OSPF propagate that he is a router with default-information originate... at the same time when he got an own gateway of last resort to an IP-adress? If so, how? I can't get it to work.
We have the following proplem with the RV 120w router with the last firmware. We can't manage to set up port forwarding. So the situation is like this: we have WAN ip: 192.168.2.68 and our router connects to VPN server and gets an IP like 10.0.10.X. In the inner network we have PCs and a DVR (digital video recorder) with ip 192.168.1.215. Our DVR uses 3 main ports like 81 (http) and 37777 (tcp), 37778 (udp) and we try to make port forwarding with the router interface like the manual says (look and the sceenshot). But when we try to enter our DVR and see the picture from the outside network (we type in browser 192.168.2.68:81) nothing happends. It just dosen't work.
Before cisco we used d-link router and everything worked just fine with the same port forwarding rules.So we need to enter WAN address in Cisco and show the 81 port in the address bar and see the picture from the DVR 192.168.1.215 from the inner network.
I am trying to Port Forward HTTP: 80, but my Router wont let me and it keep giving me this error message Status: Port Range Overlap with Remote Management.I have a NETGEAR CG814GCMR Router, I need to add that port for setting up a Game private server online, but my router wont let me, how to fix it?
I have a RV042 and I am trying to setup a Client to Gateway VPN for about 12 to 15 remote users. These users travel a lot and need to connect to the server. I have never setup a vpn and have looked at the manual and set it up like it says to. I installed the Quick VPN client on the remote computer and copied the certificate to the remote computer.
I am having two problems.
1. When I run the client on the remote computer and try to connect it tells me the cert is not installed on the local computer. (it is copied to the root program directory C:Program Files Cisco Small Business and the sub directory, C:Program Files Cisco Small Business Quick VPN Client. 2. I can continue and it acts like it's connecting but it does not. If I look at the router VPN summary it shows that I connected for only a brief time.
I've got half a dozen RV042 routers in various locations. They are running v4.0.0.07. Seemingly randomly, I got the 502 Bad GatewayThe CGI was not CGI/1.1 compliant. error when attempting to log into the web interface with google chrome (same with IE too). This happens from the LAN side. I actually didn't notice it until my Opsview monitoring software threw up a critical when it didn't get an http response. The router is otherwise actually working just fine.Since the first occurrence, more of my routers have developed the same error.
I've tried different browsers, clearing caches, though I'm not surprised those efforts were fruitless, as there is clearly a problem even when no browser is involved (nagios). The nagios http check also returns a 502 Bad Gateway.
