    rv016 vpn capabilities absolutely disgust me

    I'm trying to set up a VPN (as most of you probably have seen, see here for the original thread - http://www.linksysinfo.org/forums/showthread.php?t=53938)...

    For the life of me, I cannot get the damn thing to open port 500 (I now suspect this is what was causing my original issues to begin with). I have set up port forwarding, uPnP forwarding, port triggering, a firewall rule to allow traffic from port 500...nothing works. Even when disabling the ENTIRE FIREWALL, port 500 still comes back as "Stealth" from ShieldsUP port scan.

    How do I open this port up? This is getting EXTREMELY frustrating...

    on second thought, it does not appear that this is the issue...

    i am trying to set up an xp box as a pptp server here, and it keeps hanging at "verifying username/password"

    i can connect to the vpn internally, so the rv016 has got to be the issue somehow...
