Update: The primary issue appeared to be that I had RIPv2 settings enabled. I deleted those and that solved one of the problems. Now the issue is down to internal access rules.
When I suspend the internal access rules by adding a rule at the top allowing “any to any”, the WAN successfully port forwards to the server across the PepVPN. I have tried suspending the “deny” internal access rules one by one for debugging purposes and no success with the bottom default rule being “deny”. Obviously I don’t have the correct “allow” rule. I have tried allowing the external IP address from the WAN to access the server IP address (across the PepVPN), but no success.
I am guessing that I don’t quite have the information correct for the “allow” rule from the WAN on Router 1 to forward to the server on Router 2 across the PepVPN, so I could use some help here. I’m sure you will find it quite obvious once you log in, but for the life of me I cannot figure it out and I cannot leave the “any to any” internal access rule be my standard configuration.
I assume you will need to remotely access my router. If I am correct, would you please send me the link to open a trouble ticket?
