To establish a VPN connection over the internet you need to have static public ip peering in configuration between the two devices.

Hope to help !!

Re: SRP527w VPN setup

Hi Sean,

We do not currently support VPN client on the SRP500 - point to point IPSec only at this time.

Yes, I was also wondering this. Is is possible with the right firmware to setup the SRP527W as a VPN server?

Hi All,

Our plan is to provide this in the next maintenance firmware release - this is expected early in Feb 2012.

Hi Matt,

We're just starting some pre-release testing on this feature for the SRP527W - unfortunately we're running a little late on our earlier schedule.  Currently, we expect to post this towards the end of the month.

We have just released this feature for the SRP520W-U and SRP540W products.

Hi Andrew,

what is the update for vpn end point on the SRP 527W? It's now march 2012...

Thanks for that Andrew,

I've just updated the firmware and discovered that site to site VPN no longer works as per your reply. So does that mean I can't have Site To Site VPN and Remote VPN to VPN end point running at the same time?

If so this is really a horrible design flaw on Cisco's part. Most users would like this router to be an End Point + Site To Site simultaneously.

Hi Andrew,

Does that mean I have to reconfigure my router again for Site To Site for this new firmware?

Hi Paul,

You shouldn't need to reconfigure your VPN settings for new firmware. It is only possible to use either the VPN remote access server, or site to site VPN functionality.  I appreciate that this limiting.

Hi Andrew,

i'm trying to set up my iphone and ipad and imac to connect to the router trough vpn,

i've set up the router but i can't find anywhere how to set the secret or certificate for it.

Re: SRP527w VPN setup

Hi

The latest code posted on cisco.com includes VPN server.

Please note that this may be used as an alternative to site to site VPN ie when you enable the server, site to site is disabled.

Also, as it was referred to earlier in the thread, the SRP cannot be used as a VPN client.

Andy

Re: SRP527w VPN setup

If  I may,

I love cisco products but this one from the start has had so many bugs that they should be called Beetles.

just the fact that you can longin to the system as a user and see your VPN shared key in "clear text" is beyond comprehension.The device so fueature rich but poorly put together, why does it not support "Remote Vpn" is mind boggling. I certainly hope the issues has been addressed in the replacement product. Cant wait to get one to test.

Best,

Re: SRP527w VPN setup

Sorry folks, don't know where else to turn for help.

 

Just received the new SRP537w-u. After initial configuration with no issues, now when I click on the "Network" Tab to change the user password I see Wan setup / Web access page.

When I click on "VPN" tab I get Nat Traversal page. What is going on here?

Cisco, is this not supposed to be better than the old devise.

Re: SRP527w VPN setup

Hi Sean,

I believe that you are seeing an issue caused by some changes in Firefox versions 9 or 10.  We have a fix for this ready in our next maintenance release, but in the meantime, you should find that using a different browser will provide the right experience.

SRP527w VPN setup

Thanks andrew,

I've actaully tried all 3 different browsers without success. still after updating the firmware, the site to site vpn button is no longer working. Perhaps there's a new way of configuring this setup now? If so, there's just no other documentation on it.

Just out of curiousity, why is it so hard for a vpn router to have site to site vpn and end user vpn simultaneously?

Hi Andrew,

Hi Iceman,

It works for me when I use IE.

Thanks

SRP527w VPN setup

Hi,

I loaded the latest firmware onto my SRP527W and setup a VPN Group plus a user. Configured my iPad and it all connects fine so with the latest firmware you have the ability to support up to 5 IPSEC vpn clients it seems. I have an iPhone and iPad both working via VPN right now for email, web and internal network access.

Hope this helps,

SRP527w VPN setup

Hi,

I have just tried to config the VPN Server on the SRP527w and when I enter the details onto my idevice it prompts for a shared secret question.  It won't let me proceed without entering some details.  Then when I enter details it states not correct.

I have searched the admin guide for the srp527w though had no luck. 

Any assisitance on what this paramter is and where you configure it?

Cheers

SRP527w VPN setup

Hi,

Login to the router as admin

Go to the VPN tab

Expand cisco VPN on the left hand side

Select Group

Set a group name and a password for that group.

That should do it.

My firmware version is:

Firmware Version:1.01.27 (007) Jun 15 2012

Hope this helps.

SRP527w VPN setup

Hi Ian,

I appreciate any assistance you can offer.  I am trying to connect a VPN from my iPa however I keep getting the error on the iPad "The VPN Server did not respond".  I can ping my router successfully and I also have the same (latest) firmware version as you.

Do you mind detailing the specifi settings yu cofigured on the SRP527w and are you using the an inbuilt IOS Ciisco VPN client or a third party app on the iPad?

I appreicate any assistinace you can offer.

Re: SRP527w VPN setup

Hi Matt,

You should just be able to use the iPad built in IPSec client.

SRP configuration just requires you to enable the VPN server, configure group name/secret and usernames and passwords for each user.

Don't configure the iPad VPN to use certificates.

SRP527w VPN setup

it is now working - thanks heaps guys.

When I configure the ip address for the vpn group, I can't choose the same subnet range as my primary vlan. 

is the general rule to create another vlan/subnet and then enable inter vlan routing??

Re: SRP527w VPN setup

On a side note, can someone tell me how I can connect to my SRP527W with my Windows laptop? I can connect to it with my iPhone and iPad but I can't figure what settings to use in the Windows 7 VPN config to get to work. Cheers.

SRP527w VPN setup

Hi,

I think you'd need the cisco VPN client to be installed for that, or maybe a 3rd party one that supports cisco VPN, I think at least one of them does. Personally I'd use the cisco client if I had the choice and was using Windows.

Do you know where you can get the Cisco VPN client from (for Windows 7)? I thought Cisco would have it available for download on their website, but I should have known better that Cisco don't give away anything for free.
