With "Dynamic IP + Domain Name (FQDN) Authentication" as the Security Gateway Type, the Domain Name field needs to be identical on both sides of the tunnel for the two RV042 routers to authenticate each other.
With "IP + Domain Name (FQDN) Authentication" as the Security Gateway Type, if you select the "IP by DNS Resolved" option for the IP Address field, you would enter a real domain name here. The Domain Name field under the IP Address field is still an arbitrary string for authentication purpose.
If I use IP +Domain Name I see that another entry popps up that is grey and its populated with the address my ISP has given me. When I do the same with the remote it does not populate with the IP but I am assuming thats becasue I dont have the remote router online. So Im guessing that will populate with the remotes IP addrss if everything is ok when the remote router goes online
Couple of questions though, at both ends for the remote setting when I picked IP + Domain Name the ip address didn't populate like it did for the local setting so I had to type in the IP address for each remote location. My concern is since I do not have a Static IP when it changes will this entry change as well.
Now that I have the tunnel set up how do I ping a device at the other end. I can ping the router but not anything on the end. I have disabled the Firewall in each router and the device Im trying to ping has no firewall or antivirus
