Posted by on 20 January 2012 05:20 PM

This document applies to the Vigor2710 series and the Vigor2820 series routers.

In this example we wish to prevent the PC with the IP address 192.168.40.15 from accessing the Internet but allow access the remote office network over the VPN connection.

The Remote office network is using the IP address range from 192.168.100.1 to 192.168.100.254.
