    I have two RV082, one running and the other I am having the same problem with both of them. I am using the 1.0.47 VPN client. I can successfully connect to both units independantly but I am unable to ping or rdp (or anything else) the boxes/servers by ip behind these units. I am able to ping the private ips of each of the routers after vpning to them. Do I need to create an ACL on them to allow access to the private ip range? I am connecting from a routable cidr block with no NAT (just a Cisco router). What am I missing?

    **EDITED** Updated the Quick VPN client from 1.0.47 - same problem

    I have run across the same thing from time to time when i was testing quickvpn. There were times i could not ping but i could reach machines and services. Your best bet is going to be to get a packet sniffer (wireshark) is my favorite and see what is being sent and returning. This should help you figure out what is going on and why.

    I have two RV082's as well. I haven't had the problem you talk about. What are the lan IP addresses at each end? Which subnet mask? Are you using DSL, Cable, or other? Try setting the MTU to a value like 1420.

    I figured it out ...

    it turns out the network I am vpning into is an isolated network on a private ip range of 192.168.17.x These boxes have no external connectivity or not suppose to so they each have an ip address and subnet but NO default gateway is specified on them. The moment I add a default gateway (the ip of the RV082 that i am coming into), it works just flawlessly. The strange thing is using the pptp server, there are no issues with having boxes without a default route. I believe it is because via the QuickVPN, you are not assigned a local ip address for which the default routing rules apply.
