Cisco Routers :: RV042 - QuickVPN Versus Standard VPN Client
Nov 15, 2011
I have a RV042 router setup with Client to gateway VPN access, and am connecting with a W7 PC running QuickVPN. We have many PC's that already have the standard CiscoVPN client on them, is it possible to configure the RV042 to allow these clients to conenct? I'm not sure how to get the Mutual authentication to work, or how to import the PEM certificiate into that client. It seems to allow it to import, but I can never select it.
I am setting up remote access using an RV042 router. Using quickvpn or a client-to gateway vpn and shrewsoft client, I can only access/ping the LAN side of the remote router and one machine on the remote network. The PPTP server and native Windows 7 connection provide access to all machines on the remote network.I have 2 possible reasons for this and would like to find the real reason:
1) The remote RV042 is behind another router, and that router restricts access other than the PPTP traffic.
2) The VPN tunnels other than PPTP only allow access to the remote LAN side of the router and remote machines that have the remote router defined as their gateway in the IP configuration.
I've one RV042. I've configured VPN PPTP and it work (I've redirect port 1723 on router1 to rv042). If I can try to use quickVpn, client login and receive error "remote gateway is not responding". I have redirect port 60443 from router1 to rv042. Connection it's this: INTERNET-router1-RV042.
I have router Linksys RV042 v1.2 with latest firmware Version: 1.3.13.02-tm. And I'm using QuickVPN v 220.127.116.11. I've setup VPN connection with values, below: But every time I'm trying to connect to router by VPN it always popup a window "Remote Gateway not responding".It occurs when I'm trying to connect to VPN behind other router, when I'm connected directly to Internet the connection is established.But I'm connecting to other networks using VPN and it's working properly (behind the same router), so I think it's problem with RV042 configuration but I don't now weher.
I've been working on getting a client to Gateway configuration going for quite some time now. Had it working with a different Cisco single wan router that failed. The user replaced the router with an RV042 and we are trying to get the QuickVPN to once again connect to the router as it did before the replacement. Previously we did connect successfully with Windows 7 clients.
Router: RV042 v3 firmware 4.0.4.02-tm Quickvpn version 18.104.22.168
what i keep getting in the log is the following :
2012/10/02 12:55:07 [STATUS]OS Version: Windows Vista 2012/10/02 12:55:07 [STATUS]Windows Firewall Domain Profile Settings: ON 2012/10/02 12:55:07 [STATUS]Windows Firewall Private Profile Settings: ON
A client of mine has a Cisco RV042 Router. I've configured it to run VPN and it works, sort of. Some clients can connect, others can't, for no discernible reason.
Specific machine issues are Windows 7 x64 or x86, Quick VPN latest release, unobtrusive (Avast or Microsoft Security Essentials) security, etc. 2 separate machines on the same home remote network, 1 can connect just fine, the other can't. My laptop (Win7 x64) connects just fine, one of my techs can connect OK, the IT support guy that works for this client can connect.
Particulars of the router: Firmware version: v4.0.4.02; PID VID : RV042 V03; Firmware MD5 Checksum : 1f84d8d0a2a8b99f9bfa4409e64547aa
I used to have the problem where QuickVPN keeps on trying to verify the network because the RV042 cannot get the final ping to the client.I then bought a RV042 HW version 3 on the VPN side and I installed RV042's at the clients as well.This may look like overkill but believe me, it gives peace of mind, it made things a whole lot better, everybody happy.I am going to set up tunnels but for the time being the clients use QuickVPN. The above setup is all good if people access the vpn from the same source.
I now have a problem where one of our people is in Vietnam and she cannot access the vpn due to the "verifying network" loop.Looking at the log everything looks great, I compared a successful connect with an unsuccessful one and the logs are identical.The only difference is that the final ping is blocked (recorded in the QuickVPN log on the client side).The client uses W7 with firewall on.No need to repeat suggestions, such as turing printer sharing off, I have been through all that. isn't this simply caused by the ISP in Vietnam blocking pings ?
So here is my issue. I have two sites, each with a Linksys RV042 on thier site.
Site 1: External: 22.214.171.124 Internal: 192.168.25.0/24
Site 2: External: 126.96.36.199 Internal: 192.168.26.0/24
We have setup a site-to-site VPN between these sites, and all traffic is running back and forth without isse.
At Site 1 we have configured the Client VPN for use with the QuickVPN software. Again, for site 1, this is not an issue. We are able to access all internal resources at Site 1 without issue (expect for some DNS related problems).
The problem that we have is attempting to access Site 2 resources via the QuickVPN connection at Site 1. Even though they are not suppose to exist, we are able to ping 192.168.26.1-6 (which are ghost addresses likely created by the RV042's) but no actual systems on at Site 2.
I have added the Client VPN connection at Site 2, but it has the same problem accessing resources at Site 1.
We have 2 dsl lines coming in and the modem is in bridge mode while the router handles the pppoe information. Each line is 6mb down and .5 mb up. It's ****, yes I know, but this is pretty decent for a small town in the country. To double our bandwidth, I put it in load balance mode. When load balance, I get anywhere from 9-12 down and .8 up. Here's where it gets tricky.
When anything is uploaded, the speed drops from 9-12 down and .8 up to about .2-.7 down and .2 up. I realize that we will lose some down and up speed but I wouldn't think it would be this drastic. Is this normal?When they upload to a specific https site (file is about 50mb), it never initiates the upload. If I switch it to Link Backup, it will upload fine. I still lose the speed but at least it does something. I've read that some https sites have issues with grabbing data from multiple IP's so I figured this is the case since it's a medical site that was probably developed in house. Is this true?Does protocol binding work in Load Balance mode? I binded all http and https traffic through WAN 2 interface however, when I do a speed test or check my external IP, it is not indicating the WAN 2 IP address. Is this a common issue in rv042's or is there a firmware update that solves all these issues?
Is there a safe way to use the Cisco VPN Client (V5.x) and Cisco Quick VPN (V188.8.131.52) on the same Windows PC? I need to access my office RVS4000 and my customer's PIX 506 from the same laptop (but not at the same time).
Perhaps I should be asking "Is there a single Windows VPN client that works with both the Cisco RVS4000 and Cisco PIX 506? I have seen these questions asked on various forums but have yet to see a definitive answer.
I have a Cisco RV082 and can successfully connect with the Cisco QuickVPN Client, 184.108.40.206. However, after 1 to 5 minutes I see the Windows 7 bluescreen indicating that the system has halted due to a problem with a driver. I have installed the latest Windows updates and reinstalled the client.
The bluescreen only occurs if I use the Cisco QuickVPN Client.
I have a RVS4000 router, and using Quick VPN client (latest version, 220.127.116.11?) on a computer with Windows Vista. I can connect to the router, and I can see computers, and drives on the network. When I click on a drive or computer, I can't connect to the devices. Local IP address are 192.168.1.x, remote is 192.168.2.x.
I recently installed a new RV120W router at one of my customer's office. I have 2 users connecting using the Quick VPN software.The first one is running on a Windows XP Pro SP3. Everything works great on this PC.The second PC is running on a Windows Vista - The QUICKVPN client stays at Veryfing Network and Eventually I get an error " The remote gateway is not responding. Do you want to wait?I have disabled Firewall on both PCS for troubleshooting purposes.
I set up an RV042 as a VPN gateway for a client a year ago. It is running firmware 18.104.22.168-tm (Feb 13 2009 13:03:21). I created a new certificate. When I download the client certificate, It comes as a .zip file. One the can not be opened by a zip utlity (windows, Winzip or 7 zip). It looks like I can just rename the file to a .pem file, but I want to make sure that is right. They were getting QuickVPN timeouts, but that looks like it was fixed in 1.3.13.
Very recently, we had implemented Site-to-Site VPN tunnel between two Linksys RV042 4-port VPN routers. Everybody in our remote site is accessing and sharing the data through this tunnel and it is working fine.
Now, we have a plan to implement the same for our mobile clients also. For this, we had followed all the basic configuration procedures and user got connected to Quick VPN tunnel. Here is a problem we had observed. The mobile client user is connected to the tunnel, but unable to access the office LAN from the PC.
2) Allow all port 80 connections, and forward to 10.4.20.60
3) Allow all port 443 connections, and forward to 10.4.20.60
4) Allow port 22 connections from specific IP addresses, and forward to 10.4.20.60
5) After a remote client has connected using Client to Gateway VPN, allow that remote client to access anything on the LAN
I'm able to do #1-4 above, but I can't get #5 to work. Or I can get #5 to work, but can't implement the restrictions I need in #1-4. Attached are some relevant screenshots. I think the problem is that I have Forwarding rules set up that require me to have a firewall rule to Deny All Traffic from WAN1 (unless I'm specifically allowing it). In the Access Rules screenshot, rule #6 is the problem. If I enable it (thereby denying all WAN1 traffic), then VPN clinents can't access anything on the LAN. However if disable this rule, VPN clinents can access anything on the LAN, but the firewall also opens up all outside connections to SSH, since that's set up in the Forwarding rules. I would have thought that once a remote client is connected using client to gateway VPN, then that client is considered to be on the LAN, as far as the firewall is concerned. Thus a firewall rule (like #6) that is specified for WAN1 shouldn't effect remote VPN clients.
I have a RV042 and have set it up for VPN Client access using the QuickVPN client to connect my remote users. I discovered today that I cannot have two users connect in at the same time. Both users are in the same remote office. They can connect individually with no problem but if one is connected and the other tries connect also the second user gets a message the gateway is not responding. They are both running Win XP PRo SP3.

I'm running Cisco QuickVPN on a clients laptop (Windows 7). Windows firewall is disabled because McAfee SaaS is running.I sometimes have the issue that the initial connection attempt comes back with "Gateway not respoding" during the network verification process. You close the program, you open it again and it works. Sometimes it takes 2 or 3 tries. Today I have the issue that my client tried it like 20 times including several reboots and it's just not working. I tried it from my own computer and it connected fine on the 2nd try.I'm thinking that it might be time-out thing, that the VPN client doesn't receive a response fast enough? I know my clients home internet is darn slow.
my office network is running using a Linksys Router RV042 and at home i have a Linksys Router BEFVP41. i'm trying to setup a QuickVPN from home to my office but having problems. both routers have different LAN IPs. the firmware version for my two routers are listed belowRV042 - ver. 22.214.171.124BEFVP41 - ver. 1.02.00?
I have a Cisco SA520W router and needs to set up VPN. Du to major problems with the SSL VPN Client and windows 7, I had to let it go and try a different approach.
That was the QuickVPN client, but as it turs out, it simply impossible from reading the user manual to understand just how I have to set thing up. For instance, the VPN Wizard tells you to enter a preshared key. But in the QuickVPN Client, where do I enter the key?
And shall the "Enable Cisco VPN Client" be ticket off, I assumed yes, but seriously it is impossible to know.
Then in the VPN Wizard again, in the Remote & Local WAN Adress, what shall use FQDN or IP Address. The if FQDN, what shall a enter, the domain name for the router, whats the point in that? The domain name of the VPN Client, seriously, what's the point in that? I would assume that 99% of the VPN Client does NOT have a domain name. Then, if IP address, am I supposed to know the IP address of the client? Same with the "Secure Connection Remote Accessibility", what am I supposed to enter. The IP address which the Quick VPN Client network adapter shall have?
I bought a router Cisco WRVS4400N Wireless-N Gigabit Security Router - VPN v2.0 with the intention of using with the Quick VPN Client for connecting to my home network.
My home network is connected to a pre provide by my ISP Thomson TG784 and is connected to it but all my main network is controlled by the WRVS4400N, I have forward all the doors, as you can see by the log part below, and by analyzing the log you can see that I can't get any PING to complete the VPN connection.
OS is windows 7 QuickVPN Clien is 126.96.36.199 WRVS4400N firmware is v188.8.131.52 Thomson TG784 firmware is 8.4.2.Q
