I'm new on this forum and hope to be at the right place. I need help please. I'm quiet a newbie in networking ; trying to learn and to win some experience.
I live in Belgium. and my ISP is Proximus (provides a "BBOX" (=router/modem) working with PPPoE). On this BBOX, I did this :
- disabled PPPoE, - disabled DHCP, - assigned fix IP on 192.168.50.5, - wired a Cisco EA6700 on which : - enabled DHCP, - assign fix IP on 192.168.50.1 - setup an openvpn server (on 10.254.50.0) and a DDNS service.
Everything works great until now.
My problem / challenge...
I want to be able to manage the openvpn server (and eventually the DDNS service too if possible), on another router (Cisco EA6900 for example) wired on my network. This openvpn server can be a second one OR the only one (which means the openvpn server on th EA6700 could be canceled). My problem is that I just can't make it working on a router which doesn't manage the public IP. In other words, I can do it just like I explained above on the EA6700 because through the WAN (PPPoE service), it gets the public IP and the DDNS service. This means my openvpn client connects to the public IP (through the DDNS service). In the new config, I just can't reach the openvpn server.
What I tried...
I have no experience with port forwarding, route mapping, ... I thought I just had to forward a port on the EA6700 (which manage the PPPoE) to the EA6900 but it doesn't seem to work. I set it up like this
Protocol : Both Ext ports : 1194 (for example, can be another one) Int ports : 80 (also tried with 8080 and 1194) Int address : 192.168.50.3 (fixed IP of the EA6900)
In the openvpn client...
remote 'DDNS address' 1194
PS : I really need it to work because I have another house with another ISP (Telenet). On their router, it's not possible to disable the WAN/PPPoE. I need to be able to reach an openvpn server on this site. This openvpn server must be on an "access point router". I mean a router without public IP.
If I did something wrong in this post, sorry. First time... Just let me know and I'll correct it ASAP.
Can any skilled buddy help me please?
Thank you in advance, ComboFab.
