RV220W Hair-pinning

I'm having the same Hair-pinning issue as in this post

https://supportforums.cisco.com/message/3356389#3356389

Do you have any idea if and when a new firmware is going to come out that address it and or the PPTP VPN issue?

Between this issue the PPTP issue and the fact that I can not get my Blackberry Playbook to connect to the IPsec VPN I'm thinking about returning the RV220W and going with another.

Thanks,

Phil

Phil, returning it is the best you can do with it.

Hi Mr Casey, My name is Eric Moyers. I am a Network Support Engineer in the Cisco Small Business Support Center. Sir I would like for you to contact me at the Small Business Support Center. I can get a case created for your Hair-pinning issue and escalated so that some can help you with this. Please contact me on Monday by sending me an email to emoyersatciscodotcom. I will contact you and get the process started.

Thanks Eric that fixed that and a few other issues I was having!!

It appears that the hair pinning has only been solved for port 80 connections.

https or telnet to port 25 or 110 is not possible on IPv4, but OK on IPv6. Port 80 is OK on both.

Joergen, have you enabled all the fields in Logging and see what the log results are reporting?  might give some indication, though it will also show more issues with Date/Time issues on logging as well:)

Regards Simon

The entire array of logging options have been selected.

In the router I primarily see IKE log messages.

Only KERNEL messages are sent to the syslog server. Nothing else is reported.

The only way I get more information is by using the hourly email option for logging and there are not very many log entries.

There is absolutely no log messages about this problem.

Log entries are also out of order, so I do not trust the logging facility at all.

I found out to enable some more logging.

It is documenting my observations.

There are rules to allow and portforward port 80, 110, 443 to 192.168.1.2

i have heard that Logging is faulty to say the least.  all my logs report 1st Jan 2000, yet TIme/date is correct on my RV220W.  i forwarded my config in total to Cisco for them to see.  i also done a factory reset and re applied ALL of my settings again, to find out i had the same issue again - lol

One other observation.

IP packets on port 80 are having the router IP-address as source address.

Not very good if the web server is making decisions depending on the source address!

Joergen

have been told the following should fix your issue.

  • After configuring Port Forwarding rules, users need to go to the Firewall>Access Rules page. Perform Select, Edit, and Save for each rule, and the hairpining will be working then.

Regards Simon

PS...

“do not use port-forwarding page; instead use the access-rule page to enable a port-forwarding/ hairpining feature”

Regards Simon

As I have reported before, doing this will add the following three lines to the rule,

but only if you are lucky. My previous attempts to do this caused only the first rule and the first ten rules do be changed.

FirewallRules[10]["DestinationPublicInterface"] = "WAN1"

FirewallRules[10]["ScheduleName"] = ""

FirewallRules[10]["SNATAddressType"] = "7"

This time all 26 rules were modified.

And indeed, the hairpinning is now working for all ports, BUT the source address is the router LAN address!

The router will transform it to the real source address in response packets.

Doing this should not be needed and the source address must be fixed.

What also must be fixed is this Acccess Rules GUI.

Imagine, that for every rule from 11 and onwards I had to page forward to the page with the next rule, because saving a rule threw me back to page 1 !

Furthermore the ridiculous limitation of not being able to move rules between pages should be removed.

>And indeed, the hairpinning is now working for all ports, BUT the source address is the router LAN address!

Joergen, I'd like to know what triggers the router to change the source IP of the forwarded packets to its LAN IP.

Does your RV220W have the PPTP Server enabled?

BTW, thank you for pointing out the various usability problems in the current GUI.

Any TCP connect using the public IP address causes the router LAN IP-address to be used as source address.

(We ARE using the source address to modify the web server behaviour for some LAN addresses.)

GUI problems ?

Well, I have 20+ issues with the 1.0.2.4 firmware which CISCO support does not seem to be interested in forwarding to development !
