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.
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.
