    I got the RV042 laste week and have the same problems:

    1) I have no chance to use port 60443 with the quick vpn client.
    2) i can't connect to any computer behind the vpn
    3) there is no way to use the quick vpn behind a nat router.

    Is there a chance to get the firmware Perhaps as alpha version?

    Thanks, mitch

    1. why can you not use the default port 443 for quickvpn?

    2. have you tried \\name of PC\ in run command? or \\ip address of PC\ in run command? do you have any shared folders?

    3. you have to enable IPSec passthrough. if the quickvpn client using a linksys router to gain access to the net?

    looks like these problems are not the routers fault tbh. have you looked at the the link here?

    1) i have a https server behind the firewall, so i have ti forward the port 443 to the server. This is the cause that the port 443 isn't available für the quick vpn client. The firmware does not support the port 60443. I tried it with the client version 0.40

    2) i tried it with the ip, but the main problem is, that i can't get a connection with the remote desktop connection. I get a blank screen and after a while the message, that the connection is resetted.

    3) I tried it with an UMTS card. The problem is, that i don't get an official ip. I get a private ip and the provider nats the private ip. The logfile of the rv042 says, that there is no connection defined for the private ip of the umts connection.

    If 1. cannot be changed then 2 and 3 wont work anyway i guess, your not getting a quickvpn connection in the first place.

    have you tried PPTP on the RV042 and a PPTP client on the PC?

    1) now i tested the quick vpn client with port 443 and it works. but it is no solution because i need the port 443 for the https server. The Linksys support says that they will implement the port 60443 with the version, so it would be nice if i have the chance to test this version.

    2) even if i used the port 443 with the client i couldn`t get a remotedesktopconnection oder a vnc connection. The remotedesktopconnection shows only a black screen and vnc resets the connection after the user authentication. Also network shares didn't work.
    The linksys support told me to downgrade to version Now I'm be able to use the Remotedektopconnection and vnc.

    3) With the port 443 i have also the chance to use the quick vpn client with umts. Also the client TheGreenBow works, but only if i define a group vpn.
    If i create a single vpn tunnel i get the massage, that there is no connection defined for the ip, because the provider nats the privat to an official ip.
    Perhaps is there a solution in version

    So is there a chance to test the version

    Thanks mitch

    P.S. If there is no chance to get a solution for the open issues, i will send the linksys router back to the reseller and will use the netgear fvl338. There are many examples to use this router with several client. Also with dynamic ips.

    Where can I get some information about firmware and the download site?

    The only one listed on www.linksys.com is and I am having problems with pc's getting locked out of the RV042 (and other PC's on the lan) until I power cycle the switch.

    Usually at night, one or two of the pc's will become inacessible to each other (and to quickvpn remotely)
