I have a question to the creators and users of RV042.
Is there a way to connect with a linux machine to the VPN client access on a RV042? I'm trying to do this and playing with the settings but I'm not able to connect. I tried profiles in OpenVPN, OpenSwan, kVPNc and others. Mostly, my problem is that all of these softwares are asking for too many paramaters and other certificates than the only types that you can create on a RV042 (.pem files).
Please let me know if any of you were able to connect with a linux machine to the VPN on a RV042.
Also, I would like to ask CISCO/Linksys people why are they providing only a Windows client for this option? These are "small business" devices not windows based business devices!!!
Good day Zoli,
Unfortunately, there aren't any Quickvpn clients available for Linux and Macintosh that work in conjunction with the Small Business/Small Business Pro Routers.
While I share your dismay that we formally do not support the use of Quickvpn with any Linux distribution or any Mac OS, we have seen limited success with workarounds that allow the use of third-party VPN Clients when used in conjunction with our routers.
I am curious as to whether or not you have explored Shrew Soft VPN Client (a simple Google search will yield results). I am currently taking a look and doing a little testing on my end to see if there is anything we can get to work. If you can, please let me know what distribution you are running, what version, and a list of all of the third-party vpn clients you have used.
I personally would love to see the development of a guide that we as support engineers can use to assist our Linux-savvy customer set.
Thanks for your patience!
