I connected my 2 routers via wireless which works great. I can connect to the internet from my wired servers via the wireless connection. (Repeater function).
Looks like this:
PC1 |cable| ROUTER1 |air| ROUTER2 |cable| ADSL-Port
PC2 |cable| ROUTER1 |air| ROUTER2 |cable| ADSL-Port
Connection works from inside to outside, means I could do the ftp-install for PC1 and PC2 was already set up but can also ping to outside.
I set up the firewall of ROUTER1 to open specified ports and redirect them to the static IPs of PC1 and PC2 but I cant connect from outside. I cant check if my ROUTER1 can "find" PC1/2. Can I?
Do you have any hints why it might not work? I tried to find out via trace if I can check if the packets reach the second router but i dont know how. I really dont know what else to check...
Thanks for your help!
In a setup like this usually ROUTER 1 is NOT functioning as router, but as a bridge / repeater.
Try setting the port forwarding in ROUTER 2
Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them
