    After 3 days of research i find a solution for a problem of connection with QuickVPN



    Go to control panel/Service :

    Activate : HTTP SSL
    IPSEC

    After that go to : Firewall Windows /Exceptions

    * Add program Linksys VPN Client
    Go to Advance :
    Chek all ICMP
    Goto Services:
    Add HTTPS : port 443/443 TCP
    Security IKE : 500/500 UDP
    PPTP : 1723/1723 TCP
    L2TP 1701/1701 UDP
    Go to ICMP section , and check all

    I was trying to connect in vain to my WRV54G at home while in Mexico with no luck on a different laptop and decided to give this a try.

    As I do not have XPSP2 firewall enabled I started these 2 services without adding the exceptions (IPSEC was disabled, changed it to manual and started it) and sure enough it connected. immediately. I can now get in to everything and it's fast from the hotel.

    I might have to check this on some of my other problem machines.

    Thanks for the info. :cheering:

    Update:
    Found that all I needed to do was change the IPSEC service from "Disabled" to "Manual" and it worked. Turns out QuickVPN needed to start IPSEC and wasn't able to. After connecting I checked the IPSEC service and it was started.

    Didn't work but this did!

    In case you have already gotton QuickVPN to work while XP Service Pack 2 firewall is off, but will not work while XP SP2 firewall is ON... this is a solution that I found at Microsoft

    ICMP packets are dropped even though you have configured the Windows firewall feature to allow ICMP packets on your Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2-based computer

    I've also been experiencing problems trying to connect with QuickVPN. I get to the "Verifying Network" Phase and then it fails after a long timeout.

    I discovered the following while watching a login:

    Feb 9 17:01:49 2006 Connection Refused - Policy violation UDP xxx.xx.xx.xx:496->xx.xx.xxx.xxx:500 on ixp1

    To double check, while not connected to the VPN, I tried to tracert my internal LAN address and since I'm behind a corporate firewall, it routed somewhere and then got stuck, which is a good thing. THEN, I connected with QuickVPN, and at the Verifying Network stage, the tracert reported "Negotiating IPSEC Security".

    I tried to add an access rule to allow port 500, but it didn't work. Something must be occurring during the policy stage that adds a filter that must be blocking IPSEC security negotiations from ports other 500.

    I'm pretty sure I'm very close. I can't use PPTP because that fails the "verifying username and password" with a timeout. What's interesting there is that when I start "dialing", the PPTP page shows a connection active, but no user.
