    I'm seeing a limit of 5 IPSec via QuickVPN and 5 Gateway to Gateway in the specs (I have one on the way and thought it could do 50 before I ordered :dunce: ). I need 10 or 12 IPSec via QuickVPN. Can this be made to happen on a WRVS4400N? What would you suggest. The application is home healthcare laptops connecting to an office server for nightly updates using FTP.

    Connecting to a Windows server? Use PPTP with RRAS.

    There are 5 IPSEC VPN tunnels and 10 quickvpn client connections available on the WRVS4400n.

    As was mentioned, you could forward port 1723 (internal/external) to the ip address of the machine you configure with RRAS as a Microsoft VPN server. Fortunately, the WRVS4400N is NAT-T/GRE compatible (I have an microsoft vpn server connection ready to go in the event of my IPSEC vpn going dead).

    The only SOHO routers that did 50 vpn tunnels were the Linksys BEFVP41 and the Linksys WRV54G. The WRV54G is on a slow phase out, as well as the BEFVP41. The BEFVP41 does not support quickvpn but has 50 IPSEC tunnels; the WRV54G supports 5 quickvpn clients as well as 50 ipsec tunnels. If you were to purchase the 50 user quickvpn upgrade for the WRV54G, then you'd have a total of 50 quickvpn clients you could use to connect to the WRV54G. I believe the firmware version of this was 2.39.2E...
