I have dd-wrt's OpenVPN client running and connected to a commercial VPN provider. I use this for outgoing traffic. However, I want also to be able to host an https site at my ISP-given address, so I need the dd-wrt (K3-ARM) to forward incoming traffic on port 443 to my Apache server.

How do I do this? I tried just using port forwarding, but the dd-wrt seems to be forwarding traffic from the VPN tunnel, while incoming traffic directed to the ISP address never even gets to the firewall.

How to do this?
Thanks

No replies so far... is this just not possible to do? Would I have to set up two routers, one with VPN and one not?

Thanks for the replies. Right now, I just have one dd-wrt router (R7000). It connects directly to a Motorola Surfboard modem, which connects to the cable from the ISP.

I was hoping I could configure the dd-wrt so that traffic on a specific port (443, or I suppose I could pick a more obscure port like 40000) would be forwarded between WAN and my web server, avoiding the VPN tunnel. Everything else would go through VPN.
