How do I connect to the RVL200 SSL vpn or IPsec vpn from a Macbook Pro running Snow Leopard? I have tried using the Safari browser and Google Chrome and neither seem to connect.

What you won't find in the user manual you refer to, or in the specifications listed on the Linksys / Cisco website, is what version(s) of Mac OS X are supported.  I found this out the hard way, after purchasing the router to find it only works with version OS X 10.4. Linksys business customer support was not helpful at all, and seemed unaware of this fact.

I later found this information from the v1.1.7 firmware release notes:


11. Virtual Passage supports Mac OS X 10.4.x (with Safari), Linux (with Firefox 2) and Windows 2000/XP/Vista (with Internet Explorer 6/7, Netscape Communicator 8, and Firefox 2.)


Meaning OS X 10.5 doesn't work, which is the version I had at the time.  10.5 was released in October 2007, and support for it has never been added.  I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for 10.6 support.
