    Greetings, here is my dilemma.

    Thanks to Linksys for making great products and really crappy docs :(

    I have a RV042 I want to use as my VPN server. It has a hard coded ip on it.

    On my remote sites I will be using a combination of static and dynamic ip connections using the WRV54G vpn wireless wouter as the endpoint.
    I have registered the dynamic IP clients with DYNDNS.ORG.

    Let me give you an example.

    VPN Server Site

    69.53.xx.01 Is the IP of the VPN router is the subnet is the mask

    VPN Remote site
    Dynamic IP with DYNDNS.ORG is the subnet is the mask.

    I have created the following on the VPN server side

    Local Security Gateway Type = IP Only
    Entered the correct static IP
    Local security group type = subnet
    entered the subnet as ip and as mask

    Remote security gateway type = Dynamic IP + FQDN (Authentication)
    domain name = xxx.dyndns.org
    remote security group type = subnet
    ip address =
    mask =

    Does that look correct so far?

    Here is the rest.

    Keying Mode Manual IKE with Preshared key
    Phase1 DH Group Group1 Group2 Group5
    Phase1 Encryption DES 3DES
    Phase1 Authentication MD5 SHA1
    Phase1 SA Life Time seconds

    Perfect Forward Secrecy
    Phase2 DH Group Group1 Group2 Group5
    Phase2 Encryption NULL DES 3DES
    Phase2 Authentication NULL MD5 SHA1
    Phase2 SA Life Time seconds
    Preshared Key = SECRET!!!

    Now then, what I want to know is the following, on the WRV54G router on the client end, how should I configure this, and then how do I tell it to make a connection.

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    :) Thanks - Joe

    Just got off the phone with Linksys support and thought I would share this with the rest of you.

    There is a problem with the RBV042 using Dynamic/IP and dyndns. It is being addressed, in the meantime you need to know your IP and plug it in manually instead of depending on the dyndns to do it for you.

    I found thier tech support very helpful :)

    Now then, I didnt test the thing before the guy got off of the phone, I can ping the other router ie can ping "WRV54G ROUTER" and a pc but if I try to ping to the subnet from the subnet I can ping the router at and nothing else on the 131.0 subnet.

    Its odd? Any Ideas?
