I have a fios-quantum-gateway modem/router. One of the routers port is connected directly to my Netgear-prosafe (firewall). I have not configured this with static IP as as I see some other issues when I configure it that way. However the Netgear is set to grab the required IP with fios-Quantum-gateway (say 192.168.1.aa).
When I try to VPN from my home network with IP 192.168.1.bb to 192.168.1.aa , I am successfully able to VPN into the Netgear network. However if I try to VPN on 192.168.1.1 , then it fails
I have created a portforwarding rule trying to make it more liberal
TCP Any -> 500
TCP Any -> 4500
UDP Any -> 500
UDP Any -> 4500
192.168.1.aa. -> VPN_external
In additon to this, I have created routing rules
Name. Entry Destination Gateway Netmask
network Home/Office. IPv4 192.168.1.1 192.168.1.aa. 255.255.255.255
network Home/Office. IPv4 192.168.1.aa 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.255
my final goal is to VPN from external IP. A couple of years ago, I was able to do so. I am not sure way caused the external VPN to not work. Unsure if it was because of the change of router (from Actiontec MI424WR to Fios Quantum gateway).
I would appreciate some help.
Thank you in advance.
This is my educated guess and two cents.
Have each router in a different subnet.
One at 192.168.1.1 and the other at 192.168.2.1

thanks for your response.
My Netgear is alredy on a different subnet.
The earliear mentioned IP 192.168.1.aa is the public IP for the Netgear.
Unsure if it is doable & that is what you are advicing -
Do you want me set the IP distrubution on fios quantum to
something like the following?
& then set the public address of netgear as 192.168.2.1. ?
There is one more observation that I should have mentioned earlier.
the ip 192.168.1.aa cannot even ping from the FiOS console.
All the othere devices connected, even on wireless, can be pinged from the GUI-console.
If I ping 192.168.1.aa from a laptop on the wifi (network 192.168.1.0), then I see the ping response.
