I just purchased a RV180 last week and connected it to my home network. I set up a couple of QuickVPN accounts and was able to access them without issues. The problem im having is if there is one VPN session active and another client attempts to connect it stalls at the "Verifying Network" dialog and then says "The remote gateway is not responding. Do you want to wait?" Selecting yes just makes the box appear again. When this is going on, the existing vpn connection on the other account drops with the same dialog box. I can run one VPN connection all day without errors. Is there a VPN connection limit or possibly a QOS tweak I need to do so more than one connection can be made at a time?
I don't think that it is documented but I have seen several cases where multiple user tried to connect from the same location (same WAN IP) and when one connected, the other dropped. In some cases if one user was connected the second user would not be able to connect at all. This may not always be the case, but this has been my experience from a support perspective. In a case where multiple users need to connect from the same site, we recommend using a gateway to gateway VPN tunnel or a third party client such as Shrewsoft, The Greenbow or IPSecuritas for Mac.
With a site to site tunnel there is no limit as to how many users may connect. Also, each router can connect to multiple other routers at the same time. The limitation that I mentioned applies only to QuickVPN.
