Has anyone established a tunnel 'tween an RV0 and a *nix router?

    I'm a fan of using same gear when it comes to VPN tunnels....but out of curiosity...I tried establishing a tunnel between a linux router (Endian), and our RV082 at the office.

    So I yanked the RV082 I was also using at home...replacing it with my Endian router. Endian is an open sourced linux router based on IPCop..with a few more features like transparent proxy antivirus/spam/malware scanning at application levels, etc.

    Anyways...IPSec tunnel, just can't her to open up. Error logs unfortunately not giving me much to go on.

    I have done many different devices but never a linux box, however as long as its IPSEC compliant it should not matter. That being said the only device to ever give me grief was a pix, it for some reason was defaulting to domain instead of IP for IKE identification and causing IKE trouble. I know you have worked a ton with VPN's so i will venture to guess its something very small that has been overlooked or you just dont know is there (as in my case). I would suggest using every piece you can possibly think of so as to not have it accidently on on one side. Could be as simple as PFS on one side and not the other or as complicated as the linux box not liking a CIDR mask. I am curious though so please let us know.

    I presently have 2 IPCop boxes connected to my RV042.

    I am able to connect my RV082 to a box running Monowall, but I've never tried it with a home-rolled linux setup.
