WRV200 remote management through IPSec VPN

    I played a bit with remote management. But, I found impossible to manage the router through IPSec VPN connection.

    But, perhaps I missed something during my experiments. So, I'm asking for comments, about this particular case.

    I´m using two wrv200 with VPN connection and I can access the other site via the local IP (without using the remote port number)

    Well. I have two WRV200 linked though a IPSec VPN, as well.

    In my case both neworks have different subnet IP's (As they should to, I think). And I can not access the other WRV200 web interface through VPN, for some reason.

    Do you have Remote Management enabled?

    I have remote Managment enabled and acitvated "allow remote ip : any", maybe that is the point.

    I tried it without remote managment enabled, but i won´t work.

    Enabling Remote Management afaik is only if you use the WAN IP to connect to the routers webgui and not LAN IP address. You maybe able to contact the LAN IP but you will be on a different subnet from the remote site, and thus it will not let you use the remote's Webgui.

    So, in order to access the LAN GUI, it is necesary to do it from the LAN subnet IP. But, how to create a same subnet LAN using an IPSec VPN. I'm not sure if it is possible, in this case.

    The default gateway on your side (wrv200) should know how to already get there, you should not need to do anything special. If you can ping a machine on the other side you should beable to get to the lan side ip of the remote wrv200. Sometimes the 200 likes to just get mucked up, try rebooting it and then try again.

    That's interesting. Every device from the remote network responds to ping, except for the router. So, I can not ping the LAN side of the remote WRV200 through IPSec tunnel.

    Ahhh... A familiar annoying issue once again resurfaces :) If I vaugely recall, a Phase II negotiation appears suspect.

    Eric_Stewart and I played around with wallwatcher and a few scanning tools one night trying to figure out why Qvpn would connect but you couldn't ping the router (similar to yours) and what we saw was that Phase II (NAT-T) was "not" going through port 4500 as it was supposed to; it appeared to be using a port in the 4600' range. Nothing is more irritating than to make the connection but then not be able to ping the resources.

    I'll ask eric and see if he remembers anything else in particular about this.
