I'm by no means an expert, but here's how things work.

The Auth Server listens on port 80 for gateway requests.
The gateway makes requests to the Auth Server (on port 80) and the
server replies back to port 2060.

Generally, there shouldn't be any IPTables rules on the GW unless you
have special requirements.

Even then, I'd test fully open, and letting WD set all the rules etc.
Once you have that working, you can tinker with additional rules etc.

The Auth server is most difficult, IMO.

You can also run both the Auth server and GW on the same box if

(I run the Auth server on a regular x86 box, and the GW on OpenWRT.)

Since I'm not always the best for answering questions, I've set
follow-up back to the list.
