    Hello,
    I just noticed that under firewall settings my router has VPN Passthrough, with choices PPTP, L2TP and IPSEC. None of them is checked. NAT is enabled on the router. The VPN is working fine. For my education, can someone explain when and why passthrough might be needed?
    Thanks

    "Features like VPN Passthrough are needed because most routers are Network Address Translation (NAT)-enabled and VPN protocols such as IPsec don't have a specific port number for the device to multiplex the port address translation back to. This feature enables special processing of IPsec data packets and allows the device to keep a table of active connected VPN tunnels."
