    I just bought this router because it was the only one that i could find that supported tunneling, not just VPN passtrough.

    Basicly, im having trouble figuring out if this device can be used to set up permanent tunnels between two locations when both of them have dynamic IP`s and require dyndns.org to even work.

    So, before i go further with my line of questioning i need this answered:
    -Should i be able to set my WRVS4400N up with a permanent tunnel between two locations with dynamic IP addresses (using dyndns), where one end is this router and the other is a x-server? (mac os X server)

    Thanks in advance, hope you can help me out

    Uhm, how did you encode the .wmv videos? I`m on a mac, tried to open them in: Quicktime (perian and flip4mac), VLC and Mplayer OS X - i got the audio but no video.

    edit: very sorry, just saw you had a link for the codec aswell

    Well, as it shows: The codec doesnt work for mac os X when viewing TSCC compressed AVI or WMV videos. So i guess i need someone to give me a short initiation in how to set up my router/xserver so they create a tunnel

    We may have to readdress that problem in the future. I don't have any written instructions at this time :( due to putting things in video format for ease of use.

    Give me a minute or so (metaphorically speaking) and I'll try and scribble something out...

    I´m also trying to use the Linksys WRVS4400N to connect to our company that uses a DDNS IP adress, which I also use at home. I can´t find a way to use an IP address in the form of work.dyndns.org for the "Remote Security Gateway" which I need to have it automatic when the dynamic WAN IP changes. I used to have a D-link VPN router at home before that handled using DDNS addresses without any problem also our company router, a Fortigate, handles DDNS.

    Should I give up and return the Linksys?

    Seems that on the WRV4400N Linksys removed the use of domain names for the remote security gateway address, you only have the choice of IP address or any :thumbdown:

    I have been told that the RVS4000 firmware v1.1.x can support remote security gateway identified by a DDNS domain name. WRVS4400n will support this feature hopefully in Aug.

    Are there any news about DDNS and the WRVS4400n. Firmware 1.00.16 does not contain the feature
