Port forwarding [SOLVED]

I have had this working in the past, but clearly there is something I've forgotten. I have a RB4011iGS configured as a router and it sits behind my ISP's router. The config is: 1.

Unless one wants to filter traffic between nodes members of same subnet/VLAN ... and that is not the case very o...

Re: RB4011iGS+ VLAN filtering issues. [SOLVED]

Re: RB4011iGS+ VLAN filtering issues. [SOLVED]

I salute you sir! Thank you. I am working today, but either tonight or tomorrow I'm going to implement / review every single thing you've suggested and report back. I think you've highlighted at least two, if not more, major issues that could be at the root of this. Will revert.

Re: RB4011iGS+ VLAN filtering issues. [SOLVED]

Gotta go out but a quick look add address=192.168.2.1/24 interface =ether2 network=192.168.2.0 should be your bridge.

RB4011iGS+ VLAN filtering issues. [SOLVED]

I have spent weeks determined not to let this get the better of me. I have read all the forum posts and various tutorials. I've experimented again and again, but I am now accepting defeat.....I have a fairly basic set up using a RB760iGS. Whenever I turn on VLAN filtering for the bridge using the se...
