Remote Worker

Remote Worker

I've had no problems putting Remote Worker into place on previous 6.0 systems. I just wanted to check with others as to whether I should return to the site and either put the Bell router into bridged mode, as I had someone put port forwarding in place in the Dell Sonicwall that was also onsite, but found the customer had left the bell router in regular mode to make use of it's wireless function. I take it that the port forwarding is a waste of time since the data has to travel through 2 routers in order to get to the BCM and I'm better to have the Bell router put in bridged mode and have them deploy a wireless access point or will it work as it sits now and it's just some other problem I'm to find/address?

RE: Remote Worker

Putting a Modem Router into Bridge mode is for those whom have a standalone Router that is better such as more features Router wise as well it will take over the forwarding.
When in bridged mode it acts as modem only, router functionality is totally disabled so there would not be any connection difference.

So what is the is issue anyway? registration? audio? other?
