    I have an RV016 as a hub and 5 RV042 as satellites in a gateway to gateway configuration. 3 WANs on the RV016 and single cable or DSL connections at the satellites.

    Connections appear to work fine, except...

    I cannot ping 2 IP addresses at a satellite ( and .4) from any address at the hub ( I can ping the 2 addresses ( and .4) from any PC on the same LAN (192.168.10.X). I can ping other ip addresses at the satellite (192.168.10.X) form the hub (192.168.254.X), just not those 2.

    Any ideas?

    are there any firewalls on the PCs that is stopping ICMP Echo Requests perhaps?

    also your VPN Local and remote groups. do you take into account the subnet?

    Thanks Toxic. Firewalls are probably not an issue, the destination IP is an VOIP system, the the PCs calling only have the standard windows firewall.

    "also your VPN Local and remote groups. do you take into account the subnet?"
    I have to say, I am not sure about VPN groups -- can you tell me where those settings are? Thanks.

    In case the VoIP systems have a different gateway setting, their response to a ping request will go to a wrong destination.

    Can you confirm the VoIP systems you are trying to ping do have a correct gateway IP setting? If it is different from the local RV042 IP, the responses on ping requests will not go back through the VPN tunnel.

    That makes sense to me. The odd thing is that it I have another VOIP system at another VPN'd location, and that one pings back just fine. I think both VOIPs are set the same way -- so I have been looking for them to behave the same way. I'll look into it - thanks.
