We are connecting 2 offices with a dedicated point to point connection. Both offices have the Cisco RV082 router. In both offices, the routers are being used for internet on the WAN1 port. This model has a WAN2 port, which can be configured as Dual-WAN or DMZ. Dual-WAN appears to be for load balancing and fail-over.
I am planning on configuring WAN2 in DMZ mode on each router for our point to point connection. In one office, the WAN2 port will have to be a private IP (192.168.177.1), and in the other office it will be a public IP (this is due to some other technical reasons i dont need to get into here).
My question is will this setup work? Do i need to worry about assigning a private IP to the DMZ port? Do I need to change the router from "gateway" mode to "router" mode?
I am adding routes to each RV082 so that the networks can talk.
I have called Cisco support and this model is out of warranty. I also posted on the Cisco forum, but have received no help so far.
Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
