Can you use XPpro's VPN interface with WRV54G?

    I have a new WRV54G with FW3.8.6. I can connect to it using quick vpn and can access files on the remote computer.

    Is there a way I can use the built in windows utility to set up the tunnnel. I would like to use that for my tunnels if possible. Will that support UNC mapped drives?


    I also have a question about DHCP. If I have 2 domain controllers inside my network doing DHCP and DNS, and I disable the DHCP on the router, will remote users still be able to log in with QuickVPN or another client software?

    First Question:

    Yes, if you figure out how to master Windows IPSEC VPN Client Configuration:

    Second Question

    Yes. Disabling DHCP on the router won't keep your clients from logging in with quickvpn or any other vpn client (i.e., greenbow or ssh sentinel). Neither Greenbow, SSH Sentinel, or Quickvpn rely on being assigned a virtual ip from the WRV54G. Everything is handled via encryption, authentication, and preshared key.
