We recently purchased a Cisco RV220W VPN Router and want to set up VPN connections for about 10 users(employess) to connect to their work PCs (mostly win 7 & win 8) from their home computers (windows & mac) using Remote Desktop. The documentation is quite poor. Can anyone point me to a tutorial and/or help me out with steps and settings? From the Admin Guide, it looks like I should be configuring Remote Access with an IPsec Client, but it's not clear how to handle/route multiple machines?
You can use the QuickVPN client to connect up to Windows 7 PCs. Windows 8 is not supported as of yet.
For Windows 8 and Mac you can create PPTP users or try a third party VPN client like Shrewsoft (Windows) or IPSecuritas (Mac). You also have the SSL VPN option in the RV220W. Please note that the third party clients are not officially supported by Cisco.
There are some good instructions for setting up Shrewsoft with the SA500 which is similar to the RV220W here:
