    First I'd like to thank this site for helping me get my VPN working to start.

    My problem that I'm now experiencing is that I have the WRV setup for 5 users to connect. I can get all 5 to connect simultaneously from different locations effectively (while not extrememly fast its still a connection). The problem is that what I need to do is connect my companies new location which has 4 computers to our main location which has the WRV located at it. The remote location has a cable connection running to a Netgear router and everyone has internet access. One of these computers can connect to the WRV but after that one is connected no others can use QuickVPN (only client tried at this point) and connect. If i cancel the first connection the second one can now connect. So from what i gather is that i can only have one connection per IP address to the WRV? Does this sound right or is it maybe I have a config problem somewhere perhaps on the Netgear or the WRV router?

    Unfortunately, the WRV doesn't appear to support multi-vpn pass through, which is such a shame. Netgear has an older router that does do this, "but" that is not the case for Linksys. So, if one person connects before anybody else, the remaining four have to wait and then fight for the open connection when the previous user disconnects.

    If you have to get all users capable of accessing "the other side of the tunnel," then the easiest thing to do is a gateway-to-gateway connection, which the WRV54G can do. This will allow all of your users on both sides to access each others local domains. I'd recommend upgrading to 2.37.13 or 2.38 because the 2.37 firmware has an issue where SHA1 displays as MD5 in the advanced tunnel setup (the two pages aren't synchronized) for phase II configuration of a PPTP tunnel.

    Check out the links below:


    Just make sure whatever you put in local secure group, remote secure group, and remote secure gateway is the opposite for the other side. See below example:

    Local secure group: <-- Your Lan ip address

    Remote Secure group: <-- Remote Lan ip address

    Remote Secure Gateway: <-- Remote WAN ip address

    Local secure group: <-- Remote Lan ip address

    Remote Secure group: <-- Your Lan ip address

    Remote Secure Gateway: X.X.X.X <-- Your WAN ip address

    Make sure whatever other settings you use are the "exact" same on both routers.
