I have an RV042 that we actually do not utilize for any VPN function, but I like the simplicity of the router and the ability to manage some of the aspects of this at a reasonable price.  We use it as a gateway router on a cable circuit where we have three functions that I need to be able to keep:

1.  Digium VoIP Box - we need to retain UDP/TCP/HTTPS access

2.  FTP running off of a Cisco NAS device - ports 21 and 443 need to be kept open for the GUI and for up/download

3.  We have a timekeeping software program running on a server that requires only 443 access

I found three articles on the knowledge base that may help you with your question and help familiarize yourself with the access controls on the RV042.
