RV215W - Can a VPN client only access VLAN1?


I have a RV215W (firmware which has the main WiFi SSID (WPA2 -  Enterprise) on VLAN1. There are some peripherals like the HP printer  that can't do WPA2 - Enterprise, so there is a second SSID  (WPA2-Personal) for those peripherals only on a different VLAN (VLAN4). Inter  VLAN Routing is set to allow VLAN1 to access VLAN4 peripherals, and all of the PC's & server on  VLAN1 seem to have no problems accessing the peripherals on VLAN4  regardless of whether the PC is on VLAN1 through ethernet or the main WiFi SSID wireless.

But here's the problem. If someone connects in via PPTP VPN, they can  access all of the VLAN1 stuff but none of the VLAN4 peripherals. I don't see  anything anywhere to set what VLAN the VPN clients are allowed to  access, or change those restrictions. It basically looks like VPN  clients are implicitly on VLAN1, and cannot access any other VLAN.

Is there a way to let a VPN client access the other VLANs?


RV215W - Can a VPN client only access VLAN1?

Hi Michael, there shouldn't be a problem to access additional VLAN so long as the PPTP client is connecting within one of your actual router subnets and/or the intervlan communication is configured on your VLAN. The route table needs to contain a route for your PPTP subnet permitting to the subnet. If your PPTP subnet does not have a route to the VLAN 4 subnet, this is your issue. In this scenario you either need to have your PPTP subnet match your VLAN 1 subnet or add a static route for PPTP subnet to the VLAN 4 subnet.
