Ok, here's one for ya. First, my config: Shrew software client to BEFVP41 v2 (1.01.04) Windows Vista 64 Bit VPN router config: Local security 192.168.10.0 Remote: any Gateway: any pfs on 3600 secs Phase 1: 3DES, SHA, 1024 bit Phase 2: 3DES, SHA, 1024 bit Anti-replay enabled Netbios passthrough enabled Keep alive enabled Here's the issue. I'm able to connect ok and ping, and rdc, etc without problems. If connection drops, I successfully reconnect tunnel according to router logs. However, cannot ping, rdc, etc. Only solution is to drive 45 miles, unplug router, and plug back in. I've searched the net endlessly and the only solutions are "disable firewalls", which are obviously already disabled since it works after a power cycle. Gotta be something with the Linksys since a power recycle works. Any suggestions would be helpful.
