I currently have 2 RV042's one at work, one at home. I have a direct fiber connection via PPOE to home and the same provider with a direct fiber line via PPOE @ work. I am able to get the 2 connected successfully and ping machines. I am even able to view all the machines on my work LAN at home under the same workgroup. The problem I run into is timing out. I can click on the computer name in the network list but when I try and view a share it says the network share is no longer available. My current MTU setting is 1450... Couple of questions: Q1: What is a recommended phase 1 and phase 2 group to use and what is a recommended phase 1 and phase 2 SA lifetime? Q2: Will dead peer detection (DPD) work in this case to reconnect when needed? Q3: Is there a way to use the home RV042 as a router via VPN to use the work RV042 as my remote gateway for DHCP? If so, are there any advantages?
