    Heya all,

    is it possible makes the WRV200 as VPN server, and openVPN as client to connect to server?
    then force the client internet connection through vpn?

    OpenVPN is an SSL VPN client and not a IPSec client. it wont connect sirectly to a WRV200 using VPN.

    SSH Sentinel, GreenBow and NCP should work fine with the WRV200

    Reading the specification of the new RVL200 it is stated to allow SSL VPN clients to connect.
    I do not have this router, but it would be interested to know if anyone succeded in connecting with the OpenVPN client.

    Another alternative is to buy a WRT54GL and install the 3rd party
    DD-WRT firmware v23 which have a VPN version supporting OpenVPN.
    I have not tried this myself as I am still trying to improve my Linux skills.

    You dont need OpenVPN for the RVL200. MSIE is all that is needed. you type in the IP Adddress or dyndns name of the WAN for the RVL200 using HTTPS:// and you connect to the RVL200, it prompts you for a username/password. you then enter the details in and the RVL200 will then give you a new window. you click on the icon on the center of the window, and a Virtual passge driver is installed on your PC and the PC then is given a IP address from the RVL200 over an SSL VPN connection.

    the user doesn't want an alternative, he has a WRV200 already.
