    I can connect to the remote wrv54g router.
    I can ping the remote router's internal ip address of
    I cannot ping any other devices on the remote network
    I can ping remote network devices using the ping utility on the WRV54g

    Any ideas why this would happen

    First, make sure the devices the other side don't have software firewalls running. Next, verify that the computers are part of a domain with the proper dns settings configured. If they are not in a domain configuration (i.e., "workgroup), create a local user account that will allow access when you connect with VPN.

    Improper DNS settings can generally be a problem; check those out before looking elsewhere (as a suggestion for starters).

    I am having the same problem.

    I have a RV082 and am using QuickVPN.

    I can ping everything on the network EXCEPT my 2 servers.

    The RV082 is
    The Domain Controller (also DHCP) is
    The UNIX telnet server is

    Everything else is higher.

    I can connect via QuickVPN and ping everything BUT the domain cntroller (0.2) and the unix server (0.10)

    From the routers web interface, I can ping both. Also, if I remote (over the VPN) to a computer on the insde, I can ping both. But... from my computer that is connected via QuickVPN I cannot ping those 2 computers.

    Any ideas why?

    Thanks in advance!

    I too am having this type of problem.

    I can connect using quick VPN

    I can ping all LAN adresses

    I can not connect to shared drives
    I can not connect to the exchange server via outlook.

    If i connect using PPTP server and the XP client. EVERYTHING WORKS.

    Only thing is is that PPTP is not as secure and it only supports 5 clients...need more.

    Any Ideas?

    Here is an update, as far as my situation goes.

    We got a WRV54G and created a full tunnel. Same problem. Couldn't ping or contact the .2 or .10 ip's.

    So, I changed the IP of the DNS server to .205 and it worked fine.

    To fix the issue with the .10 unix server (SCO 5) the unix guy had to create a gateway on the unix box.

    Now all is well, although I don't know why there was an issue in the first place.
