Help with XP Firewall Settings to allow quickvpn to work

    I am trying to get my quickvpn client software to connect to my wrv54g router. I am able to connect if i disable the xp firewall. I have enabled the firewall and seen that it is dropping a packet destined for 443, i have enable this port in the xp firewall but it still seems to drop it, i have tried both udp and tcp even though the dropped packet is tcp.

    I am trying to implement this for my small company (15) on the laptops. I dont want to disable the xp firewall completely, but i do want them to be able to connect remotely and get what they need.

    If anyone can offer some assistance I would appreciate it.

    I have talked to linksys support and they say i should just open up port 443, 1723, and 500 but none of these seem to make a difference.

    If someone has had success with this i would love to hear what you did to get it to work.

    ok, according to what I have experimented...You would have to read this....


    which explains when not tuse the firewall, besides you have a firewall in the router that can be turned on allowing the vpn to work, and in my case using quickvpn i do not have to do any port forward or mess with the windows firewall since is off...

    Would that apply or help in your setup?..

    QuickVPN and Windows XP Service Pack 2 Solution

    For those of you who are having problem to connect using QuickVPN while Windows XP SP2 is enabled (Test to see if it works while it's disabled, if it does, then this is your fix so you can leave the XP Firewall on"


    After you install the update and restart, you can simply allow the Linksys QuickVPN Client to pass through Windows XP Service Pack 2 Firewall by adding it to Program Exceptions.
