    I'm having a problem connecting a gateway-to-gateway VPN tunnel between my company's office and a client. My company uses an RV016 router connected to DSL. I need to do a packet trace on the WAN traffic while trying to connect the VPN so I can see what is really happening (the VPN logs are not very detailed). As far as I can tell, the RV016 administration GUI doesn't have a way to execute a packet trace.

    I saw one suggestion on another site to put a hub between the RV016 and the DSL modem, then connect a laptop to the hub to perform the trace from the laptop. Unfortunately, I access the RV016 router remotely using VPN, so I would have to talk someone from the office through the procedure of disconnecting the cables, performing the trace, and reconnecting the cables. I'm hoping to find a way for me to do it remotely.

    Does anyone else know of another way to perform a trace?

    Thanks in advance.

    do the hub/laptop thing at your home site, the results should be the same...
    You probably won't get much useful info from it however since the data is encrypted...

    There is no way to do a packet trace from that unit, we use one at my work and it doesn't give any useful debugging info...

    Some details on how it's setup and how your trying to connect to it would be useful in helping you with your issue though.

    What are the logs saying and what are you seeing when the tunnel tries to connect? What is the device on the other side, opposite of the rv016?
