revjim rules. i now have vpnd running on my desktop and laptop and my desktop's forwarding IP packets. then i have our router reverse-NATing dns from its public port to my desktop.

i setup my laptop in a configuration like starbucks and everything works now.... so now off to starbucks to test?

i should write a Mini-HOWTO now that it's all done. :-)

Update: Bleh, they're transparently proxying all DNS requests to their own DNS servers, that's why my dig command worked the other day. I should have noticed that then and saved myself 12 hours or so of work. Oh well... learned a lot in the process.

Are you running DHCP?

I can't get my Linksys router to forward ports while DHCP is enabled. ?

Are you trying to forward to ones that are DHCP or ones that are static?

I have the linsys dsl router/switch combo and I have ports forwarded to my machine, and DHCP running.

I have 2 static IPs (or had, it's not really an issue anymore, other than it pissed me off). = the router. = my linux box. All other machines were DHCP. I tried to make my linux box a DMZ host and tried to forward ports. Neither seemed to work.

I had both working.... DMZ on my desktop, and ports forwarding to another machine...

Make sure you get the latest firmware from linksys.com
