Hello to anyone who can help,
I'm trying desperately to get my RV120W to establish a VPN connection. The goal is to let clients access via VPN client - do not need to do anything site to site.
Due to constraints at the site, our only option is to place the RV120W behind a DSL modem, which is an Actiontec PK5000 provided by Qwest.
Nuts and bolts of what I've done so far;
- DSL modem has its own LAN side, obviously - its living at 192.168.0.x. LAN side of the RV120W is 192.168.3.x
- enabled IPSEC passthrough in the DSL modem to the RV120W's IP address (192.168.0.2)
- used the VPN Wizard to create the IPSEC policies, including a shared key.
- Created a username/pw
- attempted to connect to the VPN through QuickVPN client (from Win7-64bit, for what its worth). Failed to connect. Firewall is enabled, so its not an issue of IPSEC being disabled.
- Enabled RIP v2 on the DSL modem (as suggested by the modem configuration in situations where there is a gateway behind the dsl modem)
So - I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, or if I'm battling a situation where it simply cannot be done. This seemed like a pretty simple configuration - I'm kind of perplexed as to why I'm having so much trouble with it.
I've attached screenshots of what my IPSEC policy settings are. I've left everything at the defaults (this was at the suggestion of the telephone support from Cisco).
Some questions that I'm not able to understand from the documentation - in the policy settings, the remote endpoint defaults to a FQDN, then enters remote.com - is that simply a placeholder text that should be replaced with the actual FQDN of my site? Or, should I be using "Local WAN IP" since I'm behind the DSL modem?
Hopefully that's enough to get started with what the situation is - I would greatly appreciate anyone who can help me walk through this. Definitely hit one of those walls where its beyond the knowledge that I had in my head.
