Hi friends, I've been trying to setup a VPN using my Linksys router without any success. I was hoping someone more knowledgeable would be kind enough to give me some help/pointers. Hardware PC desktop: Intel P4, 3.0ghz, 1gig RAM, 80gig HDD, Windows XP Pro. Config using IE7 Laptop: IBM T-43. Wi-fi enabled. Since I just want to create a basic VPN and to test it out, this laptop will be connected to the same router as the desktop. Router: Linksys VPN Router. Model: WRV54G Firmware: 2.37.1 using STATIC IP. I'm not allowed to give my real IP address but lets assume the following: IP: 126.96.36.199 GATEWAY: 188.8.131.52 Subnet: 255.255.255.250 DNS: 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 Please tell me which options to select and where I should enter the info in the VPN configuration menu. IPSec Passthrough: enabled or disabled? PPTP Passthrough : enabled or disabled? L2TP Passthrough: enabled or disabled? Select Tunnel Entry: 1 through 50...which should i choose? VPN Tunnel: Enabled or disabled? VPN Gateway: Enabled or disabled? Tunnel Name: Should i name a tunnel? Local Secure Group: Which info should i put in here? I can choose between Subnet, IP address, IP range, and Host. Remote Secure Group: Same question as above. What should i enter in here? Choices are: Subnet, IP address, IP range, and Host. Remote Secure Gateway: Same as above. Encryption: DES, 3DES or disabled? Authentication: MD5 or SHA1 Key Management Key Exchange method: Auto or Manual? Should i use a pre-shared key or can i choose not to? Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you soon. Thanks again.
