    I can not get traffic to go from one side of the VPN tunnel to the other side.
    The tunnel is connected but I am unable to ping across the connection.

    I have the following setup:

    Cisco 2811 router FastEthernet 0/0 IP
    RV042 LAN

    other side is:
    Cisco 2811 router FastEthernet 0/1 IP
    RV042 LAN

    I have tried many different configuration. Gateway mode, router mode,
    different settings on the local and remote security policies still not luck.

    What am I missing ?
    Has anyone else gotten a similar configuration to work ?

    The Cisco 2811 routers are running EIGRP.

    Thanks for any help that can be provided.

    Forgot to list the firmware version.

    afaik the two sides have to be in a different subnet, try changing the one of the RV042's Subnet. ie. to

    I also have the serial ports on the Cisco 2811 routers connected to a MPLS network. Changing the subnet on one routers worked as far as pinging things but it now going across the MPLS network.

    I am trying to setup a backup connection on my Cisco 2811 routers so that if the MPLS network goes down, it will use the Internet VPN connection.

    Any suggestions ? It's still not working like it should.

    Oh and Thanks for the help.

    Toxic thanks for your help.

    I think that I now have it working correctly.

    I had to create a GRE tunnel on each router so that the route could
    go across the VPN tunnel and then get installed in the EIGRP process.

    Used the interface tunnel 0 command and then just setup the correct parameters.

    I still need to test failover and maybe setup load balancing but at least the route through the VPN is showing up.

    Thanks again.

    Ok, I may need help on the Cisco part.

    I have a tunnel setup on both routers. The VPN connection is up.
    I have EIGRP running and I can see the other 2811 router as a neighbor.

    When I take down the MPLS circuit, I get a message about recursive routing and then it takes down the tunnel.

    So I did some looking for recursive routing and then applied a distribute-list for the tunnel. I still don't think I have things working correctly.

    Current setup:

    2811->RV042-> Internet <-RV042<-2811

    #1 2811:
    F0/1 is
    Tunnel is
    #1 RV042 is

    #1 2811:
    F0/1 is
    Tunnel is
    #2 RV042 is

    Any suggestions would be great. I need to get the EIGRP routing to work correctly so that when the MPLS fails it will use the VPN connection.
