    I have a new wrvs4400n vpn router hooked up to a SMC Comcast IP Gateway. I have a static IP and I am trying to get my IPSEC VPN to work. I have done this before
    On a customers router with HER SMC router using wrv200 and it works fine.

    Local Group Setup
    Local Security Gateway Type IP ONLY
    IP Address STATIC IP
    Local Security Group Type Subnet
    IP Address
    Subnet Mask

    Remote Group Setup
    Remote Security Gateway Type IP Only
    IP Address (my router internal IP)
    Remote Security Group Type Any

    This is the setup I am currently using however I cant get past phase 1 using GreenBow. I think the SMC is blocking me however I did go in and turn off the Firewall in it.

    Any help would be great. I also tried using QuickVPN by creating a user. Did not work. Nothing. Not even logs in the router. I am sure my config is a mess above.

    As you can see in the pic I sent, I am confused as to what IP I am to place in the “Remote Group Setupâ€. I want to leave the blank however I get an error telling me that the IP is wrong when trying to save. I hope this router is not supposed to be a gateway to gateway router or something. I would just like me and a few guys from the office to be able to connect back to this office via THIS router from ANY location not just the location I have to place in the Remote Group Setup.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I was on the phone with tech support last night and they could not even get the Quckvpn to work even with the firewall off. I think I know why that is not working. Could it be because The SMC Comcast ip gateway DHCP and the Linksys Router DHCP are both disabled as I have Windows Server 2003 DC providing my DHCP. Since then I have enable the DHCP relay feature in my router. I will have to do some testing.
