RV042G VPN ACCESS REMOTE Config Shrew Soft

Hello,

I am trying to configure a remote access VPN with IPSEC, I have a Cisco Small Business RV042G router. I have succeeded to connect with QuickVPN client using a user previously created. I also have succeeded to connect with TheGreenBow client using pre-shared key whatsoever with client authentication by IP address or by mail. Exactly the same method I have succeeded with the Shrew Soft VPN Client. I would Shrew Soft VPN with only establish a connection with the user IDs as if only the pre-shared key is used throughout the world can access the VPN configured on this computer.

To summarize can you tell me what configuration needs to be put to use only user identification with the Shrew Soft VPN Client?

 

Thank you very much.

Hi,Usually, it is used Mutual

Hi,

Usually, it is used Mutual PSK + XAuth, when you want to configure authentication with user and password, apart from the preshared key.

But RV042G do not support XAuth, which means that you cannot create a separate user/pass for the Shrew VPN connection.

yes, it will be a conflict.

yes, it will be a conflict. If the LAN IP range behind RV042 is 192.168.1.X, and the Quick VPN client also is in the same range - 192.168.1.X, Quick VPN will not connect and will shows 5 errors message.

But different clients with different usernames which are from the same range, for example 192.168.10.X, and this range is different than the router LAN, for example 192.168.1.X, can connect simultaneously.

Hi Kremena, Thank you for

Hi Kremena, 

Thank you for your answer, yes I have read the rv042g does not support XAuth. But then he is a free client software for using a username / password can configure a virtual network. You know the method used by QuickVPN? 

Thank you

Unfortunately the user

Unfortunately the user database, configured on RV042 for VPN users can be used only from Quick VPN software and no other software.

Hi, 

Thank you, yes I have experienced it, it works. 
Friday everything worked correctly I had three clients connected but now can not connect I get the message: "remote gateway not responding" on each client. I have not touched anything in the configuration and I do not know why it does not work.
