I have a few Draytek Vigor 2820 routers and have recently set one up using settings from another. I have it set up on the firewall filter to block torrents which it does very well.

The issue I am having is that I have a website on a local PC which I access from a remote PC through a VPN and since I have set up the filter it no longer lets me access this website. It only does this on the router I have recently bought. The older 2820n routers don't seem to have this problem.

If I un-tick Prevent web access from IP address on the URL content filter profile it will let me access the website but I don't want to have to do this.

I feel it mught be the firmware and was wondering if anyone else has had this problem?
