Nokia seem to have very little to say about it and the product in general and the manual set makes no mention of passthru. It also doesn't mention PPTP which might be worrying.
I bought this box from a third party company who have told me, when I went to them having discovered the problem, that you can't have NAT and VPN passthrough on the box at the same time. If I have a range of static IP addresses and the router was in 'traditional router' mode then VPN would work.
However, people at work (HP ex Compaq) tell me that VPN can co-reside with NAT if some ports are opened up.... hence my post to this forum.
I am not really a comms oriented person and as such was hoping someone who knows what they are doing had been down this path before and could say to me.... ah what you want to do is...
Which vpn protocol(s) do you use? You mentioned pptp which works on layer 2 - the work done by NAT should have no bearing at all. I have initiated pptp sessions to HQ from behind a NAT router while running in stealth mode - that means NO ports were opened.
If you are using any of the IPSec family then that is another issue.
You may want to consult your IT department for guidelines.
anything is possible - nothing is free

You've really been a pal looking into this for me, but I have been hearing a lot about the IP55 not being able to do this so I have purchased another model of ADSL modem/router/switch (the new Netgear offering) that states that it can do what I require.
