    I tried to setup a VPN connection btw. my WRV200 router and one XP SP2 client. First I tried QuickVPN: No go at all, it only writes connecting and that was it (maybe has something to do because I want to connect over a HSDPA modem card - dialup?).
    Before we go to second: I always used the IP-Addresses for pinging and file-sharing.
    Second try was to do it over a IpSec-Tunnel:
    Well, I got that one connected after some configuration problems at the beginng with SSH Sentinel (also tried Greenbow once - worked too but first not freeware and second the connection only was up for 40 seconds or something but there I had nearly the same problem as with SSH Sentinel)
    BUT I have a problem: Tunnel gets established BUT I am only able to ping the router itself through its local IP-Address, the PCs behind I truely need to access I am not able too... Although normally I should be able to access them. Also those PCs don't have a firewall installed (at least not the one to which I want to connect). I can't even ping them. (with Greenbow I was able to ping one other PC but not the one I wanted to access, but anyway: File-Sharing didn't work there too).
    Does anybody have any idea why I could have this problem?

    EDIT: I am using Firmware 1.0.24-ETSI.

    EDIT2: Here are the settings on the WRV200:

    Of course during the testing the tunnel was enabled and not disabled.
    On the other side (SSH Sentinel) I used the virtual adapter with a different subnet than here on the local group.

    Found out why I wasn't able to connect to the wanted PC: It was because that PC didn't had the Router as gateway entered in the fields. With the new QuickVPN-Beta Client (1.0.47) I am also able to connect through QuickVPN (although I would prefer a tunnel) BUT that connection is very unstable, it doesn't even work for 1 minute.
    And I also was only able to ping: I don't know if file sharing works too (too less connection time becuase the speed from the data card is only GPRS where I am currently testing the whole thing)...
    And I also don't know if it will work with SSH Sentinel but this could also be because of SP2 -as far as I know it normally only supports up to SP1?

    Just want to inform you that adding my router as standard gateway to the one PC and using TheGreenBow-Client and deactivating DPD on the router (client can still use DPD) got me a relatively stable connection (at least as long as you don't overuse it - but that is because of the extremely slow connection speed from GPRS).

    Thanks for the Info. dunno if you want to try the 1.0.26 since this has improved somewhat over .24 and IPSec page is now all on one page and not two (Advanced page removed)

    One question: Do you know why it won't work with SSH Sentinel but with TheGreenBow? Is it just because of SP2 or because of some misconfiguration?
    I might try 1.0.26 too later...

    Many VPN Client software are not compatable with each other, you may need to try each one installed at a time and see if that fixes the issues.

    As far as I know I had only installed SSH Sentinel at that time but well it doesn't matter that much, it works with TheGreenBow but maybe I will try some time later again...
