WRVS4400N and RDP on the LAN

Hello,

I am having some difficulties using RDP on the LAN of the router. I previously had a Linksys E4200 router, and I was able to RDP from my Win7 computer (192.168.1.139) to my Win2k3 server on the LAN (192.168.1.251) with no issues. However, when I replace the E4200 with the WRVS4400N, the connection will only work for a few seconds before giving me the following error:

I am unsure why the new router would be causing this issue. It is not exclusive to RDP connections on the LAN either... I get a similar error when attempting to connect to computers off site. I could see MTU's being an issue if it was over a VPN connection, but there is no VPN involved in this case.

Any insight will be appreciated.

Re: WRVS4400N and RDP on the LAN

Same problem... cannot do standard RDP to windows clients inside the firewall once a VPN connection is established to the server.  Can resolve names via DNS pinging both names and IP addresses fine, can browse internal network, can open server shares by name, no issues there.

Now, I have been using routers of all types and levels for over 20 years with standard VPN port forwarding and windows VPN server connections, small ones, big ones, 5 users, or even 5000 users... and NEVR seen this problem before.

Your tech note that says to "Turn-on Remote Management" on the router is totally dangerous, scary, and irresponsible - NO WAY... any router that requires this to be on just to pass VPN traffic is total garbage folks. Besides, even with this on, and following every ridiculous tech note you have sent me in 12 months, NOTHING MAKES IT WORK.

The perfomance of this router is wonderful as far as speed goes, both on wireless wired segments, but the firewall protocols are garbage compared to the cheapest Linksys routers of the previous generation devices.

And, as if there were any questions as to the idiotic design of this unit, the fact that your manual states that "Remote Managemnt" must be "ON" for the router to even function with VPN is direct evidence of this badly flawed software design.

One may as well advertize to have their system broken into... sheesh - get a clue Cisco.  I and the rest of humanity expects more from you.  I'll never buy another Cisco product after this, and your lame support of this product.
