A while back I followed a video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yCM9K7S7Io) and set up my system as two VLANs as described below. Other than that video, I'm a complete VLAN noob, so bear with me please.

OK, so first here's my setup:

vlan0: compA compB compC
vlan1: compD

compD is running an ssh server and the router is set to port-forward ssh to that computer. I've tried to ssh to compD from compA and compB as well. Neither one connects (they time out). But if I try from compD to compD it connects. Just to make sure I tried to connect to compD from yet another computer that is completely outside of my network. That computer could connect as well.

It seems the only machines that can't connect to it are those on vlan0. And before you ask, when I ssh I'm not using the internal IPs. I'm using the WAN, or external, IP address.

I realize computers can't talk across VLANs, but I'm going out and back in. Am I wrong to assume that this approach should work?

Thanks for reading this too-long post. Smile

NAT loopback (which as you described, is going out the WAN and coming back in) has been broken on dd-wrt for a long time. At least it was the last time I checked. For all I know it still is, or perhaps has been fixed, I just don't know. The only way to be sure WAN port forwarding is working is by actually being outside the WAN.

Well, poop. That's too bad.

Thanks for replying and giving me the name "NAT loopback". Maybe that'll improve my google-fu enough to figure this out. Smile
