Hi there,

I am wondering if you can forward a particular IP on your network through a VPN using the Asus XT8's. I know this was possible on the AC-RT68U but can't seem to find the same option on the XT8's.

Sorry if this is a stupid question as the XT8's are Mest Points.

Regards
Jesse

I'm unaware of *any* consumer-grade wifi routers running oem/stock firmware that support routing policy rules. And by that I mean, the ability to dictate specifically which *source* IPs are routed over the VPN rather than the WAN.

In fact, this is a major reason why users gravitate to third-party firmware, like AsusWRT-Merlin, FreshTomato, DD-WRT, etc. It's one of many reasons why I use third-party firmware w/ my ASUS RT-AC68U.

you can do it with Edge Router or MikroTik for example - it is one of the reasons that people or even small companies (for budget routers) that do not want/ cannot use alternative soft are using those solutions.

what FW you were using on RT-AC68U? If it was RMerlin you know why it was working.

Hey, thanks for the feedback. Come to think of it I had loaded the AC68U with the merlin firmware :)

One more question, and I will look for this, but is the Merlin firmware compatible with the XT8's also?

Darnit yep just checked :confused:

Much appreciated for the info. Guess it will be full VPN for the household or nothing.
