    I have RV042 and RV042; setup VPN Client access. On my laptop, I use Windows7 and QuickVPN version 1.4.1.2. I think I have everything setup correct BUT the certicate of authentication. QuickVPN need this file. I exported it from my rounter, then :
    Where should I put this file ? What name should I use ?
    How can I connect to 1 VPN, then another VPN later if the QuickVPN does not allow me to name the file name ?

    Thanks,
    Gary

    6. Enhanced the security of QuickVPN by supporting self-generated certificate on the router. Several functions (buttons) were added to the Certificate Management section on the VPN Client Access page. Administrator can generate new certificate, export certificate for admin backup, export certificate for QuickVPN clients, and import certificate for admin. The router's certificate needs to be delivered to all QuickVPN users and placed in the install directory of QuickVPN Client, e.g. C:\Program Files\Linksys\Linksys VPN Client\. This way the QuickVPN client will only trust these certificates placed in its local directory and will not be deceived by a hacker in the middle to connect to a hostile computer. With QuickVPN Client v1.1.0 or newer, when the client encounters a certificate that is not trusted, the client will pop up an warning message, suggesting the user quit the connection attempt. The export and import functions can be used when the admin wants to reset the router to factory default, but does not want to re-distribute the certificate to all of the QuickVPN users.
