I set up a PPTP VPN with an RV220W recently. It was working flawlessly until a recent power outage and now users are getting the 807 error when attempting to connect. I have PPTP passthrough enabled and TCP/UDP 1723 open. As far as I can tell GRE 47 is open as well. Why it was working and is not working after a power outage?
I recently installed a new 220W with the sole intention of setting up the PPTP server. I got the router installed and working but cannot get the PPTP server working. Also when i configure a block of IP address from my lan for the server it tells me i cannot use that subnet? i have set it up this way with other routers ( RV042 ) with no issues.
I have the RV220W and we are mainly using PPTP for VPN access. I can not add more than 9 PPTP VPN user acounts. When I go to add a tenth account the interface just hangs and stops responding. I can delete a user and then add another user and this works fine. I can also add other types of VPN users.
I've got trouble using PPTP connections with the RV220W small business router.When trying to connect to the router of a branch office with the Windows PPTP client (i.e. on Windows 7) from outside the companies network first everything seems to be in working order (user name and password are checked, the device is registered in the remote subnet) but then a window pops up saying there has been an error connecting.
Here is some information on my setup:RV220W with firmware 220.127.116.11It connects to the Internet using PPPoE dialindyndns account configured and workingAnother router working in "Act as a DSL modem" mode is used as a modem (AVM FRITZ!Box 7170)The RV220W is maintaining a IPSec tunnel to a main office, which is working finethere are 2 local VLANs (one with access to VPN tunnel, one without), each with a own subnet (192.168.201.0/24 and 192.168.202.0/24)PPTP users are on a seperate subnet (192.168.203.101 - 192.168.203.111) My first guess was, that the intermediate router acting as the modem could be a problem, but i verified all settings on that router and it should not filter anything. After all port forwardings, the IPSec tunnel and so on are working.
I currently have a RV220W connected over PPTP to the internet. I want to connect with an RV042 with a fixed IP Address.The connection is working, but I always have to add a static route to the remote IP-Adress that I can transmit data.Since my own IP Adress is a dynamic one that changes every day I have to enter every day in the static route as gateway adress the new WAN IP Address.
i'm having problems connecting to my RV220W using PPTP. The first time I set up PPTP on the box, everything worked just fine. Now, however, PPTP just won't work. No matter how I try to tweak various settings on the router, the connection fails. I have tried connecting with Windows 7, Android and OSX with no success.The router came with version 18.104.22.168, and I have tried downgrading to 22.214.171.124 and upgrading to 126.96.36.199, but alas, I can't seem to make PPTP work again.
I possess a RV220W (firmware 188.8.131.52) but I can't seem to work with the PPTP server on one VLAN only.
My default VLAN is in 192.168.1.1/24. I created a VLAN ID 10 in 192.168.50.1/24 inter-vlan routing : disabled and Device Management : disabled. (Menu Networking > LAN > VLAN Membership and Multiple VLAN Subnets).
Then I configured a PPTP server on the IP range 192.168.50.200 to 192.168.50.210.
To finish I created my user. (Menu VPN > IPSEC > VPN Users).
The PPTP tunnel is working, but on all my local network and not only the VLAN ID 10.
I have two offices connected with an IPSEC VPN tunnel using RV220W routers. The Tunnel works fine for local users between the two sites(Site 1:10.0.0.x; site 2 is 10.0.2.x). I have also set up PPTP users for remote access. PPTP users that connect to site 1 cannot access site 2 and vice versa. The PPTP users have no trouble accessing the resources on the site that they connect to. I have tried activating RIP and adding various static routes with no success. If I PPTP connect to site 1 and I tracert to an IP address on site 2 the route goes to the site 1 router and then goes to the internet(connected to the site 1 router) where it stops.
Can I configure a PIX (515), as PPTP client to establish a tunnel with non-Cisco PPTP server ? Can my PIX initiate this type of connection ?Today, I use a PC with PPTP client to establish this and I want replace this with a PIX and I don´t want depends of a PC.
I have a pptp server on my network and am trying to configure my new RV110W so that I can tunnel through to it from outside.
I believe I must do port forwarding for TCP on port 1723 to get those packets going to my PPTP server. PPTP also uses GRE and I don't see that as an option anyware in port forwarding... Does that just work... as a matter of the VPN pass through checkbox being enabled ?
My netgear router would lock up every few days but it under the firewall configuration it had list of services that included PPTP and I just selected that, entered the IP addresses on the outside that I would accept, and the IP address on the inside that the PPTP clients would connect to, and it worked....
I'm thinking it is harder on this device because this device supports actually logging into it.. I am interested in learning more about that technique especially if it is more secure but the way I see it the firewall device can see all of my network and the pptp server I am using is on a file server and limited to those files shared on that server.
My network to use a RV042 router. It is connected to my cable modem and working well. I may add a DSL connection later in the month as a backup. All I really want to do now is setup my PPTP VPN connection. I have not been able to find a guide so I will assume it isn't that bad. I set up 2 accounts in the VPN-PPTP Server screen. Built my connection on my android phone and voila nothing works. So I tried to disable the "Block WAN requests". I tried port forwarding the VPN to 192.168.1.1 (address of the router) and no luck. AT this point I am stuck. I know my infrastructure is right because from outside the network I can [URL] and see my router configuration. Now if I could just get a simple PPTP connection
I am having a problem connecting to my office VPN from home since I changed my (home) router to the RV180W. I am not using pre-configured tunnels, I just connect to the office VPN using the built-in Windows PPTP client when necessary. I have a small network at home using the router in a NAT configuration on my static IP fibre DSL connection.
I had previously been able to connect using PPTP from either XP or Windows 7. Now I get "Error 732: Your computer and the remote computer could not agree on PPP control protocols". Unfortunately I don't know what hardware or PPTP server is used at the office.(I don't know if it is relevant but I have also configured the RV180 PPTP server to allow incoming VPN connections - this works fine. It doesn't make any difference to my issue whether it is enabled or not.)Are there any known problems using Windows PPTP client through the router in a NAT configuration. Is there anything I need to configure apart from enabling PPTP passthrough?
Edit: Just to clarify, the problem is making PPTP VPN connections from XP/Win7 on my home network over the internet to my office VPN/PPTP server, via the RV180W as my home router (using NAT/PAT).
Edit: More info. Looks like the office VPN is a Microsoft RAS server on Windows 2008 behind a cisco PIX firewall.
Edit: Just to be sure, I swapped out the cisco RV180W for my old netgear router and I was immediately able to VPN again with no issue from both XP and Win7. When I swapped the RV180W back in again, I was able to VPN from XP but not Win 7 so it looks as though the PPTP passthrough works occasionally but is intermittent. Just to be clear, the VPN is only intermittent using the RV180, it has always worked flawlessly on the other router so I don't think there is a problem with the internet connection or client/server configuration.
I am having problem when try to connect through VPN from MacOS to my RV016 router.The situation is like this. I can connect to the router,the connection is succesfull, but when I try access resources inside the network it disconnects me.The message is "You are dissconnected by the PPTP Server". I encountered this problem on MacOS Snow Leopard and Lion. I tried to connect from 3 different Apple machines, but the problem is the same.
For the past week, I have tried to setup the PPTP VPN server on the RV180. The setup was straight forward, but I could not log-on no matter what I tried. I decided to call Cisco small business support, and as I was talking to the engineer, it mysteriously started to work. I was puzzled and somewhat embarrassed because I'd hate to admit it was an id10t problem on my part. As I tried a few different configurations, I began to realize there might be a limitation in the RV180 PPTP VPN server with the current firmware (184.108.40.206).
In short, the RV180 PPTP only works with 192.168.xxx.xxx/24 subnet. My setup has 3 vlans: vlan1 in 172.xxx.xxx.xxx/24 subnet, vlan2 192.168.0.xxx/24, and vlan3 10.xxx.xxx.xxx/24. My originally plan was to keep vlan3 isolated by disabling inter-vlan routing, but I needed a way to manage a couple of devices on vlan3 remotely, thus I wanted to setup a VPN in the 10.xxx.xxx.xxx/24 subnet. This turned out to be the reason why it never worked before. Today when I called Cisco support, I assigned the PPTP VPN server a 192.168.0.xxx ip range, and it worked. Later, I tried assigning 172.xxx or 10.xxx ip addresses to the PPTP VPN server, and they both failed to work. I created another test vlan4 with 192.168.2.xxx/24 subnet, and assigned the PPTP VPN server to that vlan, and it worked again.
I'd like to mention that I already configured the 10.xxx.xxx.xxx/24 subnet with a few devices before I replaced my router with RV180, and I don't want to have to change and test the setup of all the devices. Another reason I want to have my VPN server outside the 192.168.xxx.xxx range is that it's way too commonly used by wifi hotspots that it increases the chance of wifi and vpn in the same subnet.
I can test a few more configurations, but I think the results will be the same. Perhaps Cisco should test the RV180 in the lab to confirm what I found.
I have a VoIP application that I'm trying to run over the PPTP VPN tunnel on a RV120W router.
The system is a NEC SV8100 PBX communicating with the NEC soft phone (SP310). The system uses SIP to set up the call and for other signaling information. It uses RTP to transmit/receive the audio stream.
The problem I'm having is that there is no audio stream from the soft phone. The SIP communication and the audio stream to the soft phone works fine. The symptom is: from the soft phone, the remote party cannot hear you, but you can hear them.
I did a packet trace on the RV120W and found the following:
As you can see, the Source IP address is being changed from its original 192.168.1.52 to 192.168.1.1. The NEC PBX is expecting the packet to be coming from the softphone, (192.168.1.52) not the RV120W (192.168.1.1). As a result it ignores the RTP packet from the soft phone and does not relay it to the remote party.
Is there any reason why the RV120W is performing NAT on PPTP packets? Can this be disabled somehow?
I am working with a RV180w and need to map drives from the internal network to the VPN client but whenever I try to connect to a shared drive I continue to get authentication messages from the DC. Any useful guide for configuration in this scenario. Internal subnet is on Windows 2008 domain.
I've encountered a problem when using PPTP VPN to access my network. I can connect in and able to ping the hosts connected to the RV110W. [code] On the local network, I am able to ping the hosts in 192.168.250.x from 192.168.251.x and vice versa.Static routes are configured to ensure that all networks are reachable.The problem comes when I tried to VPN (PPTP) in from a remote location using the Windows XP's built in default VPN dialer.When connected, I can ping all the hosts on 192.168.254.xxx segments, but when I tried to ping the hosts in 192.168.250.xxx and 192.168.251.xxx segments, I get a request timeout.
The routing table on the RV110W shows the gateway for 192.168.254.240 (the VPN IP address) as 0.0.0.0 and interface is WAN.What am I missing and how should I configure the RV110W so that I can access the other subnets through VPN?
Office-RV042 with static IP ->SBS2003 (10.10.10.5/ 255.255.255.0) Remote: BEFSR41 with Dynamic -> XP sp3 VPN client (192.168.3.x/ 255.255.255.248)
Within the RV042 I have enabled the PPtP server and assigned a user. No port forwarding enabled. All VPN passthroughs and firewall is enabled. DHCP server is disabled.I can establish a connection to the rv042 and ping PCs including the sbs domain server on the office side but am unable to browse any folders. When I attempt to access a network folder located on the office server I am prompted for a username/ password. Upon entering my domain credentials I get an error stating: "the user name you typed is the same user name you logged in with. That user name has already been tried. A domain controller cannot be found to verify that user name"
So if the PPTP server is enabled, and "Block MAC address not on the list" is enabled under the DHCP settings, will the PPTP client get an IP address?Similarly, if the PPTP server is enabled and the range of IP addresses configured on the PPTP server screen is outside the IP range of the router due to a subnet mask (like 255.255.225.248 for example), will the IP still be assigned to the PPTP client? If assigned, will that IP have any connectivity to the LAN?
Being new to the RV180 (and VPN routers for that matter) I have been struggling to get a VPN going, supporting both my Android and iPad devices. However, I understand a IPSEC connection would be a more secure sollution. Unfortunatly I cannot find a clear instruction anywhere to do this.I found the settings/descriptions in the RV180 quite different from the (few) settings in the mobile platforms. So far no success in getting it setup.
We have just acquired a Cisco RV120W Firewall Router and we are experiencing issues with this router. I've read some threads related to port forward issue with RV120W before writing this new topic.
We have 2 locations (site A and site B) connected with a Site to Site VPN (PPTP) running under Windows Server 2008 R2 with TMG 2010. This Site to Site VPN worked very well until we replaced our old router with the RV120W at site B. Since this moment, our engineers are not able to make the site to site VPN work again. The TMG box are located just behind the router.
We have followed some threads about Port Forwarding but it did not solve our issue (others port forwarding rules for RDP for example work). Our RV120W is running the last stable firmware (220.127.116.11) provided by Cisco.
I have configured PPTP Server on RV042, and created 3 accounts. I am able to connect from Windows PC without any problems.
In the router's logging utility, there doesn't appear to be any log entries indicating either successful or failed attempts to connect to PPTP server. The only access logs I see are for access to the router's configuration utility. Is there a way to view PPTP access in the router system log?
My use case is very simple I want to connect iPhone/iPad using pptp to my home network. I purchased the 180W and looks like I am not able to connect mobile devices to it. My Setup is simple I have ST536v6 (firmware 7.4.4) modem in bridge mode and Cisco RV 180W connect to my ISP using Ppoe. I followed the Admin guide and created the pptp user. If I connect from internal network it connects but when I try to connect the device from WAN it just does not work.
I am trying to setup and configure a VPN on the RV220W that uses IPSEC so I can use the Cisco VPN Client I use at work, I have gone through the user manual 11 or 12 times now but still cannot work it out. I cannot find where on the Rv200W iset up the phase 1 authentication username and password which will then lead me onto the phase 2 stage of asking for a username password to allow me access.
Picked up a pair of RV220W's for a project I'm working on. I have several IP's available, 4 of which are assigned to/in use by a server behind the RV220W. All 4 of these IP's are static external IPs. How I can configure the RV220W so that requests to those 4 IP's get routed to the server.
Prior to purchasing this, I was under the impression what I was trying to do was called one-to-one NAT, but after reading the 'Help' document on the one-to-one NAT page, I don't think this is right. Emphasis added below: Cisco RV220W Wireless-N Network Security Firewall Help FirewallOne-to-One NATOne-to-one NAT is a way to make systems behind a firewall and configured with private IP addresses appear to have public IP addresses.One-to-One-NAT Rule TableThis table lists the list of available One-To-One NAT rules configured by the user. Private Range Begin: start ip address in private (LAN) ip addressPublic Range Begin: start ip address in the public ip address (WAN IP), Public IP Subnet Mask: The Subnet Mask of the public IPRange Length: Range length maps one to one private address to public address up to the given range.Service: This column shows service to be accepted by LAN Host.The actions that can be taken on One-to-One-NAT rules are:(Check Box At First Column Header): Selects all the entries in the table.Add: Opens the One-To-One NAT Configuration page, to add a new entry. Edit: Opens the One-To-One NAT Configuration page, to edit the selected entry.Delete: Deletes the selected entries.
So according to their documentation, the server in question would need to be configured with a private IP. Unfortunately, one of the applications I use is licensed via IP address and my understanding is that I cannot use the software with private/non-routable IP addresses.
Is the RV220W capable of not only securing the line (firewall, access rules, content filtering, port trigering & forwarding etc) but also doing what I was hoping to do (keeping the external IP's on the server, and routing appropriately)?
I'm using a RV220W router, and recently got shifted to a dynamic IP solution.Now, I've got a no-ip.org address, but the update service seems to be on no-ip.com. So, I try to enter mydomain.no-ip.org OR mydomain.no-ip.com in the dynamic dns settings, under Host and Domain Name, but when saving the settings it says
'The hostname specified does not exist in this user account' ,which seems to indicate that it manages to login to the update service but gets a negative reply.Is it possible to use the RV220W with no-ip.org/com?
We have 2 sites connected thru 2 RV220W routers via VPN and most things are working fine. I have noticed however, that any device that has a web interface, i.e. our Sharp Copier and our Freenas server, is inaccessible. The page tries to come up but then I get the Cisco "server is down" page generated by the RV220W.
I can pull up the web interface pages if I use a machine on the local LAN but not on any machine across the VPN. The only commonality I can think of is the RV220W blocking that traffic for some reason..
