Cisco VPN :: QuickVPN - Gateway Not Responding - RV042?
Oct 28, 2011
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.
I have router Linksys RV042 v1.2 with latest firmware Version: 1.3.13.02-tm. And I'm using QuickVPN v 18.104.22.168. 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 am trying to install a Cisco VPN Router RV120W behind this router. I have setup the Cisco and can access the internet from the device. I also setup the Actiontec router with the DMZ host as the Cisco router. When I try to connect to the VPN tunnel however I connect but receive an "Gateway is not responding" error message after 30sec. Is there anything else I need to setup on the actiontec router to allow VPN passthough or something like that?
Actiontec Lan IP: 192.168.1.1 Cisco Wan IP: 192.168.1.2 Cisco Wan SN: 255.255.255.0 Cisco Wan Gateway: 192.168.1.1 Cisco WAN DNS: 192.168.1.1 22.214.171.124 Cisco Lan IP: 192.168.20.1
Edit: I have also tried this connection from a Windows 7 Pro with Firewall enabled and also Windows XP with the same error.
Quick VPN log:

I have a RV180 router and i am trying to use the Quick VPN Client version 126.96.36.199. It works fine on my Windows 7 pc, and worked successfully once on the windows XP sp3 pc. But now the XP pc will not work.
What looks strange is in the VPN Client Connection Status on the router I see the status is Online, however the XP pc will not ping anything on the network or connect to the RDP pc i want. The QuickVPN Client hangs on "Verifying Network".
I tried the suggestions i saw online:
Disabling Firewall Enabling Firewall Making user name shorter Allowing for PING on WAN (replies all come back fast) Reboot Router Upgraded firmware to 188.8.131.52
I did not adjust the MTU rate as i was not sure what to change it too. AV is AVG 2012.
We have 2 remote locations that are connecting to a server at our home location. Each remote computer uses quickvpn utility to establish a vpn with the home location. Our problem is that sometimes the vpn disconnects while we are working in remote desktop on server 2008. Luckily our sessions in remote desktop stay put but we lose the vpn connection. Most of the time we get a message that the remote gateway is not responding. Our dsl internet connection seems to work and we have previously had no trouble with connecting to the home location. We have 3 computers that connect simultaneously to the server at each remote location and sometimes one computer will stay connected while others disconnect.
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 two Cisco RV042 Routers, they are being used to connect two offices, i have created a standard gateway to gateway connection, fixed public ip addresses on both sides and everything works fine, except when the tunnel gets disconnected, it does not connect back automatically, i have to log into either router console and click the connect button to get the tunnel working again, this is really annoying since it happens once or twice a day at least.
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 184.108.40.206
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 am trying to setup a vpn Gateway To Gateway when i setup the vpn i can ping the 2 rv042 i cant see any computer in the network places when there comect we need to see the computer in the network places so are pos will run?
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 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 ?
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. 220.127.116.11BEFVP41 - ver. 1.02.00?
So here is my issue. I have two sites, each with a Linksys RV042 on thier site.
Site 1: External: 18.104.22.168 Internal: 192.168.25.0/24
Site 2: External: 22.214.171.124 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.
Im having trouble with getting my VPN to work on my brand new WRVS4400N router. i cant find the solution to my problem, no matter how much i read about it.
WRVS4400N: Firmware Version: V126.96.36.199-ETSI
QuickVPN: Version: 188.8.131.52
The laptop im trying to connect to the gateway via VPN is a Windows 7 x64 HP Elitebook 8540p with a internal mobile broadband (HSPA+)So.The scenario is that i've installed the QuickVPN client on my Win7-machine without any trouble.I've created a user in the web-administration of the router.The router is configured to disable "Block WAN requests" in the firewall, apart from that the firewall is on.When trying to connect - with a valid certificate that i created, i get a error message after the dialog telling me "Verifying network":"The remote gateway is not responding. Do you want to wait?".
The log.txt tells me:
...2010/10/06 00:00:28 [STATUS]Verifying Network...2010/10/06 00:00:34 [WARNING]Failed to ping remote VPN Router!2010/10/06 00:00:37 [WARNING]Failed to ping remote VPN Router!2010/10/06 00:00:40 [WARNING]Failed to ping remote VPN Router!2010/10/06 00:00:43 [WARNING]Failed to ping remote VPN Router!2010/10/06 00:00:46 [WARNING]Failed to ping remote VPN Router!2010/10/06 00:00:49 [WARNING]Ping was blocked, which can be caused by an unexpected disconnect.2010/10/06 00:02:13 [STATUS]Disconnecting...
I have been having some trouble with my internet for awhile now. It fine one second and than it will get really slow and eventually stop working. When I troubleshoot to see what the problem is it either gives me DNS server is not responding or default gateway is not available, sometimes it will give me both. It says it fixes the default gateway problem but it will show up again 5 minutes later.
Here is my ipconfig /all Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601] Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
Router is a version 1.1 running with sw version V1.1.13-ETSI Quick VPN is sw version Ver 184.108.40.206
The issue is that I can't connect due to that i cant ping the internal IP, get this error message in the QVPN log [WARNING]Failed to ping remote VPN Router![URL]I have disable the "Block WAN Request" and it is possible to ping the router on the external site.So as I see it, the router blocks for ping on the internal IP via QVPN, what have I done wrong?
I've just set-up one of the RV220W VPN solutions. This worked fine for a while, but now it reports the remote gateway is not responding. Other clients can connect, but not the computer I'm using at home. Log file reports:
2011/08/31 21:10:31 [STATUS]Success to connect. 2011/08/31 21:10:31 [STATUS]Tunnel is configured. Ping test is about to start. 2011/08/31 21:10:31 [STATUS]Verifying Network... [code]...
I've tried the most common stuff. Enabling ICMP, checked that remote administration runs on port 443, changed MTU to 1400 manually, It allows fragmented packages too. Checked that IKE and IP Sec services are running. I've also tried both with windows firewall ON and OFF. A colleague of mine had the same problem in the same time frame as me, but after a while - he suddenly was able to connect. I still can't!!
I've got half a dozen RV042 routers in various locations. They are running v4.0.0.07. Seemingly randomly, I got the 502 Bad GatewayThe CGI was not CGI/1.1 compliant. error when attempting to log into the web interface with google chrome (same with IE too). This happens from the LAN side. I actually didn't notice it until my Opsview monitoring software threw up a critical when it didn't get an http response. The router is otherwise actually working just fine.Since the first occurrence, more of my routers have developed the same error.
I've tried different browsers, clearing caches, though I'm not surprised those efforts were fruitless, as there is clearly a problem even when no browser is involved (nagios). The nagios http check also returns a 502 Bad Gateway.
I have successfully connected two RV042s to establish a VPN gateway to VPN gateway connection. I have the follow questions:
1. I would like to keep the VPN tunnel connection time indefinite. Is it sufficient by checking the "Keep-Alive" box on the VPN -> Gateway To Gateway -> Advance page? Or, I have to ping the RV042 periodically?
2. Do the "Phase 1/Phase 2 SA Life Time" (on VPN -> Gateway To Gateway page) settings have any impact on keeping the VPN connection time indefinite? What are the optimal values for them?
3. Is there an API, command, or script to replace a manual clicking on the "CONNECT" button to establish the VPN tunnel from the VPN -> Summary page? Or, is there a way to accomplish this at power up?
4. Is there a way to establish a VPN tunnel without going through login and clicking the "CONNECT" button? (Auto connect at power up?)
I set up an RV042 as a VPN gateway for a client a year ago. It is running firmware 220.127.116.11-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.
I have RV042 on my remote network, i have problems with VPN connection , user can connect to RV042 but only inside IPs that can ping from vpn user.Is it any way to make the traffic from Rv042 will back to RV042 . maybe with nat.. in example below 192.168.5.100 is my lan IP from my DSL dhcp, and 172.27.0.20 ip on remote, traffic not back to my pc/vpn client, what i want is to translate 192.168.5.100 to RV042 LAN ip address
I am trying to setup the following. We have an RV042 Router and are using it as our gateway at the office. In the office we are using a Windows Domain abc.lan with DHCP of 10.0.0 - 10.0.0.254. The Router/Gateway is setup with a Static IP of 10.0.0.100.A couple of our office employees would like to work from home via VPN using their laptops. With the many options available for this router, I am not clear as to which options and what settings I should set.
