    Ok here is one I have not seen commented on:

    I am trying to allow users at one office to VPN into another office to run a db - at one end is a WRT54G, and at the other end where the db resides is an RV042. I am able to establish 1 VPN connection from the WRT side using the Linksys QuickVPN client, but when I try to initiate other connections they hang on "Verifying Network". If I check the VPN Summary page on the RV042 it does show the other users as connected, but yet they hang on "Verifying". It does not matter which PCs I try this from - only 1 at a time can connect. Furthermore there are some abnormalities when I do connect:

    -No tunnels show as being used
    -If I disable all the tunnels I can still connect

    I contacted Linksys and they had me open ports 47, 50, 500, 1723, and 5000 on the RV042 but that did not resolve the problem. I also asked support about configuring GroupVPN and they did not even know what it was!

    Also, I can establish 1 session from the WRT site and another from say my house. But only 1 at a time from the WRT site.

    I am using firmware on the RV042.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    That would be the case, you can only make one connection per location with QuickVPN. You really should be running a site to site VPN for multiple users at one location. There are third party firmwares which add VPN functionality, these should allow you to make a VPN tunnel between the WRT54G and RV042 :)
