So, I hope this is has a solution here goes:
Have an office with an RV082 as a VPN hosting appliace and main router. I also have two field sales agents who work from home. I would like to connect them and an IP phone to our office lan so I'm looking into VPN to connect their home to my office through their home ISP's. The problem is the BEFSX41's we have won't work from inside their home routers (netgear on one and linksys on the other) even though they pass PPTP traffic. To clarify, they can currently, from a laptop, connect to the RV082 PPTP service.
Does the failure of gateway to gateway negotiation have something to do with the BEFSX41 not having its own public IP address? I'm just afraid that moving the BEFSX41 before their home router will give everyone in their home lan (read: kids) access to the company LAN via the IPSEC tunnel. Also - putting the BEFSX41 as the DMZ device on their home routers did not successfully create a tunnel.
Am I right about the lack of public IP for the outlying offices and is there an elegant solution I'm missing?
Suggestions and questions welcome.
