    Hi JadranD,

    I have two RV082 (fw 1.1.6.11) and they have worked fine for me.
    One on static IP and one on dynamic IP.

    There are a few issues:

    1) We can use QuickVPN after some good work by DocLarge on this forum. Still we have not a "seamless" connection to the office Win2000
    server and it is very annoying. Linksys support did not give much (any) help so far. So any imput from other users is appreciated.

    2) The updating frequence for dynamic DNS makes us locked out from DynDNS service due to "abuse". This is a problem for the router on the dynamic IP.

    Except from this we are running a "standard" setup without any problems.
    One router is also the DHCP-server and one is only gateway to IN.

    I'm currently setting up a small home business with my WRV54G (for now) as the main connection in/out. I'll probably be extending this in the new future to allow for different subnets. Overall, with proper configuration and knowledge of the product (do's and don'ts), ain't a damn thing wrong with Linksys.

    Disclaimer: Ensure to avoid Linksy Tech Support if real help is needed...

    :? I mean, I want to connect pepole to server over VPN and work with terminal services, there will be 10 to 20 connections to VPN router simultaneously from remote offices (remote routers) or individual clients, now I have FVL328 from Netgear, it works good after few years of heavy communication with their programmers, it finaly works, next very interesting model is Netgear FVX538 with service based QoS, but it will pass next several years until it will be stable and ready for serious work, I need something with sb QoS now ????

    What you're trying to do (if I understand you correctly) is configure a PPTP "Gateway-to-Gateway" connection. Just in case you're not familiar, this process "does not" require Quickvpn (which is just a client-to-endpoint application). I say that only because the RV082 can use quickvpn, but for this configuration, its not needed.

    In the shots below, you can see there's not too much difference between the VPN setup pages of the RV082/WRV54G/BEFVP41 routers, if you've had a chance to see setup screens for the others. If not, just keep in mine the main places they all vary "slightly" are in the "Remote Secure Group" and the "Remote Secure Gateway:

    http://img67.exs.cx/img67/9521/49gh.png

    http://img67.exs.cx/img67/2650/37sg.png

    So, if your RV082 has these settings:

    Local Group: 192.168.1.1 <----- Your Lan IP
    255.255.255.0

    Remote Group: 192.168.2.1 <----- Remote Site LAN IP
    255.255.255.0

    Remote Gateway: 24.140.23.55 <---- Remote Site WAN IP


    Then your BEFVP41 settings should be the reverse:

    Local Group: 192.168.2.1 <----- Remote Site LAN IP
    255.255.255.0

    Remote Group: 192.168.1.1 <----- Remote Site LAN IP
    255.255.255.0

    Remote Gateway: 68.23.189.90 <----- Your WAN IP

    The RV082 has few different options that can be used in the "Remote Group" and "Remote Gateway" so you'll just have to see which ones you can "pair together" in order to get your gateway running.

    The remaining portion is just encryption, algorithm, shared key, and timeouts. For these, just makes sure whatever you use in phase one "matches" what you have in phase II (and on your remote router).
