RV042 and QuickVPN - successful VPN connection to RV042 but unreachable remote LAN behind it

    Dear All,

    I have the following problem when trying to use VPN remote access with RV042 and QuickVPN:

    The basic configuration is supposed to be correct. I can successfully establish an IPSec tunnel from a remote location. After the IPSec tunnel has been built up I can even reach the RV042 itself by typing in its local private IP address into the web-browser. I can reach all of the functions of RV042 just like I had been connected locally to one of its LAN-ports.

    The problem starts when I try to reach other manageable devices connected to the LAN behind RV042. Typing in their local IP addresses into a web-browser (just like in case of the RV042) I simply cannot reach them. However, if I use internal diagnostic function of RV042 and ping them, no problem occurs. Furthermore, if I am physically connected to one of the unused LAN ports of the RV042 locally, I can reach all of the devices (RV042 and the other ones) with no problem via ther web-management function as described above.

    It seems to me being some kind of a transparency problem but I don't know the reason. There is no conflict between the LAN behind the RV042 and the remote LAN from where we try to reach the network devices ( and for the two different location). Once again I emphasize that I can reach the RV042 via the IPSec VPN tunnel with no problem. IPSec forwarding is switched on on RV042 but the same thing happens even when all firewall functions are switched off.

    RV042 firmware version number: 1.3.9-q50
    QVPN version number: v1.2.11

    Could anybody provide a solution for that?

    Best regards,

    It could be the firewall on the LAN PC that is blocking the QuickVPN user, which has an IP address not in the same subnet of the LAN PC.

    Unreachable devices are managed switches with no firewall functionality. Web-based management enabled - they are managed from the local LAN the same way.

    I have the same issue, except I'm using WRV210.

    Bump for same issue here...

    I can establish the tunnel, I can ping IP addresses on *both* sides of the tunnel, but I cannot open a mapped network drive by \\server\sharename or \\IPAddress\sharename. I'm using an RV082 at the main site and a WRV210 at the remote site. NETBIOS is turned on at the RV082, but I don't see any option on the WRV210.
