    One RV042 is on fixed IP and the other is on dynamic IP. The tunnel is created and connected successfully. I can access and ping resources from side A to B, but not from side B to A. Any ideas? Thanks.

    If traffic can go one way it should be able to go the other. Is there a firewall or something different about the LAN setup at the problem end?

    This is no firewall except the one built inot RV042. I can access office from home but not the other way round. The local ip in office is and in home is As my home is on dynamic ip, the remote group setup in office are as follows:
    Remote Security Gateway Type: IP Only
    IP by DNS Resolved: xxxx.dyndns.org
    IP address:
    Subnet Mask:

    Checking the system log at home show something strange as below:
    May 10 13:05:20 2006 VPN Log [Tunnel Negotiation Info] <<< Responder Received Aggressive Mode 1st packet
    May 10 13:05:20 2006 VPN Log Initial Aggressive Mode message from 111.222.333.444 but no (wildcard) connection has been configured

    The IP 111.222.333.444 is not the fixed IP at office but the IP address of the host assigned by the ISP which is Telus.

    Both routers are just upgraded to firmware version Before the upgrade, it was working fine. I start to think the new firmware handle dynamic IP differently.

    Well if it worked with older firmware and the same config then it definitely sounds like a firmware bug. Linksys seem to be very good at taking one step forwards and two back :wallbang:
