VPN set up on Linksys WRV54G

By cjg ·
I am trying to set up an end point VPN using a Linksys WRV54G to allow a remote WinXP pro desktop behind a Netgear MR814v2 router to connect to my PtoP network. I have followed the Linksys procedures for configuring IPsec between the remote XP desktop (Win SP2 software firewall is turned off on remote & client desktops)and for configuring the WRV54G Router. I have not done anything to the settings on the Remote Netgear router as I only want 1 way access to my P2P (all winxp pro desktops) network. Should this set up be able to work? I have called Linksys twice for long support sessions with no success.Any help would be very welcome.

VPN on Linksys WRV54G

cjg, hopefully you got a Linksys engineer (Ed seemed to be the only one to know this) to tell you that all you have to do is setup the account in the linksys router and nothing else. Gateways and Tunnels do not need to be configured. The firewall has to be turned off on the Windows Machines (especially the remote one). Create accounts (I did five) and I tested with the fifth account. I used the QuickVPN software and it connected. First time I got full access to my network. Unfortunately, now all I can get a session but all that happens is my DNS on my home network is set on my remote station but no resolution to my servers in my host network is available. Looks like another long call to Linksys (hopefully Ed) is in order. Hope you have better luck.
