WRV200 Configuration for VPN

    Hi
    I just purchased and installed wrv200 to use as a vpn router to my customer site. Our customer has managed partial T1 connection, where the service provider has setup their router which is only giving private ip. I have setup the linksys behind isp router and rest of the network equipment are under wrv200 NAT. I am completely new in setting up vpn with one of these routers specially behind NAT. I would really appreciate if somebody can guide me through this process.

    Thank You

    If you search around the forums there are plenty of strings about this very topic, though i cant find it at the moment there is even a video.

    Thank you ifican for your reply. I looked at those posts and the video. But none of them address the configuration behind a NAT. Most importantly i would like to know if i need to forward any port on the isp router. If so, what are those ?

    Thank You

    Ok fair enough, when you are sitting behing nat you have to enable nat-t minimally on the wrv200. If you are connecting to another edge device this should be all you need, however if you are connecting to a device behind nat or the other side is going to initiate the tunnel then you will have to port forward port 500 and 4500 to the machine hosting the tunnel. That is taking into consideration that neither device that is doing the nat is blocking anything and letting all traffic through.
