Ahead of my fibre install I want to make sure I'm using the Orcon supplied modem in front of my Advanced Tomato Router.

 

This means in theory I currently need to run the NF18ACV in DMZ mode.

 

 

 

I tried turning LAN Loopback + DMZ on so that I can access internal services via my external IP and it doesn't appear to work. Has anyone here managed to get DMZ + Lan Loopback working.

 

If i'm outside my network I can access the internal services correctly so that part of DMZ mode is working. Internal systems can't connect to the external IP on any of my open ports.

 

ADSL -> NF18ACV -> (Private network 192.168.7.x) -> R7000 (Advanced Tomato) -> LAN (192.168.9.x)

 

I want all external traffic forwarded to the R7000 so it is the real firewall.

 

 

 

Yes I should be running bridge mode and I have an NF4V enabled in PPPoE bridge mode working correctly. If I need to trouble shoot the fibre connection I want to make sure I'm on an unmodified Orcon supplied device.

 

Anyone here managed to get this working.

Found a reference that the Loopback support only works from NF18ACV LAN IPs - 192.168.7.x in my case

 

 

 

 

 

Now the R7000 is running NAT so all 192.168.3.x traffic should look like 192.168.7.x to the NF18ACV - so I think this might be a dead end.

 

 

 

Any other ideas?

My R7000 is running Advanced Tomato and has a far better set of firewall rules than the NetComm unit. Until my Fibre is running I need to terminate ADSL somewhere so I thought for the next couple of weeks to try using the new NF18ACV so Orcon can help with any troubleshooting.

 


I've currently got a NF4v in ADSL Bridge mode working perfectly, but that means the OOB access ORCON want is disabled.

We'll I've managed to avoid needing this as I can run the r7000 on VLAN 10 and avoid the extra device.
