    I'm a new user for the RV016 and am trying to get my cisco vpn client to connect to the unit. My understanding is that any true IPSec client should be able to connect. Here are the log entry's from the RV016 when I try to establish a connection with VPN:

    Jul 16 18:10:42 2005 VPN Log size (864) differs from size specified in ISAKMP HDR (848)
    Jul 16 18:10:37 2005 Connection Accepted UDP> on ppp1

    My configurations is as follows:

    CISCO Client

    Group Authenication
    Name: tilmant
    Password: email@address.com
    Enable Transparent Tunneling
    IPSEc over UDP

    Connection flow is:
    Work computer --> Pix 515 --> RV016
    I have also tried it working around the pix, same issue.

    I spent 4 hours on the phone with Linksys which they ended up having me try there quickvpn. That did not work either and would not have work in the long run since I need to forward port 443. Has anyone got this to work? I use the cisco vpn client without issue against a PIX, VPN5000 with no problem.

    As odd as this may sound, I've seen a vpn tunnel actually start working because the Pfs wouldn't accept a binary entry. In that instance, I used a pass phrase (eachoneteachone) or something similar (and more clever) and my tunnel started up.

    I guess what I'm saying is that occasionally, PFS entries block tunnel connectivity.

    See if that helps...

    How did you set up the Cisco VPN Client to even try to connect? I can't quite figure that bit out. You're a genius!
