    My company is using a Linksys RV016 as our firewall router. We have 3 DSL lines and 1 T1 line connected to the router into DMZ port 1 to 4 as follow:
    DMZ 1 - DSL 1 with ip address 60.xx.xxx.xx
    DMZ 2 - DSL 2 with ip address 90.xx.xxx.xx
    DMZ 3 - DSL 3 with ip address 80.xx.xxx.xx
    DMZ 4 - T1 line with ip address 30.xx.xxx.61 ( we get 5 IP address 30.xx.xxx.61 to 30.xx.xxx.65)

    All four lines are working properly with no problems.. With our T1 we get 5 IP address so the first was assigned to DMZ 4. So on the System Summary page on the router I see LAN IP and WAN1 throught WAN4 based on the assignment above.

    Recently I setup an INTERNAL FTP Server with company internal ip address which I am able to access when I am on the company domain....but I cannot access from outside. After some research I found that from outside computers I am not able to access the FTP server because I need to use a WAN ip address to access the FTP server...I logged into Router and locked the FTP server internal ip address to the WAN4 port and I enabled all port 21 traffic as well...after performing this step I was able to access the FTP Server from outside (my home computer) using FTP Server....However, when I opened web page whatismyipaddress.com on the FTP Server it told me that it is dedicated as a sharing server which I don't want to be flagged since this is ip address for WAN4.

    Since I get 5 IP addresses with the T1 line is it possible to configure the Linksys RV016 router to have a second IP address from T1 pool such as 30.xx.xxx.62 so that I can use as the external ip address for users to access our FTP Server?
