    I just setup two rv082s at two offices and successfully setup a working VPN.

    However, I can't seem to control the type of traffic flowing over the VPN. I want to be able to lock it down and allow only specific types like RDP and FTP only.

    I have tried setting up firewall access rules and all traffic still gets thru. It's almost like there is an explicit rule created allowing all traffic over the VPN will no way to override it.

    You would think this would be something that would be necessary in a VPN device.

    Any ideas?

    The firewall rules will most likely only operate on internet traffic. which the VPN traffic strickly isn't :?

    Not really as the purpose of a VPN is to make you appear to be on the network at the other end ;)

    So you mean to tell me there's never an instance when you want to secure traffic between two networks without having to be a full flegged wan?

    We have two offices that have there own individual staff and people that maintain their technology. We want to have the branch office send ftp information to us periodically but that's all.

    We don't need to be able browse their network, they don't need to ours.

    We just wanted a way to secure some ftp traffic over the public internet.

    Seems like a VPN device should allow for this.
