Set up Pocket PC VPN on RVS4000?

    I just replaced a 3Com VPN router with this Linksys unit since the 3Com unit constantly locked up with incoming Teamspeak/Ventrilo traffic.

    I always used my Pocket PC (WM5) to VPN into my network and view Slingplayer or a network camera.

    The RVS4000 doesn't support PPTP, so I'm trying to figure out how to connect with IPSec. It seems that connection, being more secure, requires a certificate? If that's true, how do I go about setting up the cert on the PocketPC so it can connect with the RVS4000?

    These routers authenticate using a pre-shared key. Later firmware version that require QuickVPN 1.1 will use a certificate just for QuickVPN, and QuickVPN is not supported on platforms other than Windows XP/2000.

    So, you will have to resort to a regular VPN tunnel, in client-to-gateway mode or group VPN mode.

    i've tried this process using rvs4000 + a pre-shared key and it doesn't seem to work.

    can you explain further on how one would create(v1.1.09) a client to gateway vpn without utilizing quickvpn?

    i’m using wm6 which supports IPsec/L2TP and PPTP..

    You can set up a ms server as a vpn server and access the network from there; there's also information available to set up a windows xp computer as s vpn server also. I use a ms vpn server with the pocket pc's terminal client to access my network.

    As toxic mentioned, and actual client as suggested would be the next best option...

    thanks for the reply,

    i'm hoping to find a solution where authentication occurs at the router instead of a box.

    do you believe that one of the suggested clients might work with either quickvpn or through the routers ipsec option?
