    After reading the VPN Sticky I am just as lost as I was to start with. There are a few things I am a little confused about.

    First and foremost I have a camera system on my office system (behind the RV016) that I can't seem to access. I have set the port forwarding and allowed access through the firewall onboard the router. But I still can not connect. The Camera system uses its own client program that worked just fine when I used to use my wrt54g as the gateway.

    Second I just dont think I get the whole VPN setup. I created a tunnel, created a user acount, and tried logging in from home. It authenticates my password then times out saying to try again later. Maybe I just need a VPN for dumies article. Any help in finding the right way would be greatly appreciated.

    I never should have moved past MS-DOS

    I take it when you used port forwarding you also used a static IP on the camera?

    http://www.linksysinfo.co.uk/routerworld/ is an old mirrored site but have some good info on there about setups.

    first thing to do is start the vpn tunnel (what method ar you using?)

    try pinging the camera's ip address, this will llet you know it it is working or not.

    also the help menu in the rv016 will give you some good info on what each setting does.

    Static on Camera

    All of the computers in my office setup have static IP's, the strange thing is that the port forwarding works from the inside of the network I just cant access the system from outside the network anymore.w
