    I managed to connect two RVL200 routers via IPSec VPN, but that's where the story ends. The computers at one end cannot see others at the other end.

    As a tweak I changed MTU to manual 1465 bytes but didn't help.

    Has this behavior seen by others before? What else do I need to set in order to allow the computers to see each other?

    did you set the local groups to "subnet" how are you trying to "see" the other side?

    Have you tried pinging a device from a PC to a remote PC?

    Have you tried using Start, Run and entering the UNC and sharename of the remote device? ie \\remote pc ip\sharname\

    Thanks for a quick reply.

    It is a standard setup.
    Local Group
    Gateway Type: IP Only,
    Group Type: Subnet,,
    Remote Group
    Gateway Type: IP Only,
    Group Type: Subnet,,

    And vice-versa for Router2

    Routers connect without problems. One computer is connected to Router1 with fixed IP, and another computer is connected to Router2 with fixed IP

    Ping doesn't work, trying to access files by IP (\\ ) or computer name (\\Room3) doesn't work either.

    * access by computer name (e.g., \\Room3) doesn't work with SSL VPN either, only IP works.

    The computers behind Routers 1 and 2 can access other parts of the network without any problems, it's only the IPSec VPN part that has problems. Also, computers behinds Routers 1 and 2 cannot be ping-ed from outside.

    Firmware is v1.1.2 on both routers.

    should you not be using ?

    computer name is a netbios name, have you enabled netbios on the vpn tunnel advanced settings? (if possible)

    pinging will work is your own PC firewalls allow ICMP Echo requests.

    does the computer have a share? \\\?????????? you have to setup a folder to share then do


    hope this helps
