How do you configure QuickVPN and a RV120W router?

I am extremely frustrated trying to get my new RV120W to create a VPN connection. The router's firmware is The version of QuickVPN is

The only success I have had so far was by downloading the Greenbow Client and following their installation guide for the RV120W. I was then able to open a tunnel using Preshared Key authorization. They did not have any instructions on how to utilize a Certificate.

I assume that QuickVPN requires a certificate but does not recognize one downloaded from the router using the download certificate option. OpenSSL and microsoft recognize the downloaded certificate as being valid but QuickVPN keeps saying that there is no certificate on my computer.

I was able to create a self-signed certificate which I uploaded to the router along with my CA certificate. The router seemed to accept these certificates as valid and QuickVPN quit complaining about no certificate when my self-signed certificate was present in the QucikVPN Client folder.

There are no messages in the router log that indicate that any sort of connection was even attempted.

My IKE and VPN Policies are using the default values for Encrytpion and Authorization.

However, I still cannot get QuckVPN to connect. Is there some document or procedure published that in a manner similar to the excellent instructions that Greenbow has published, that spells out what options and specifications must be setup on the router in order for QuickVPN to connect?

Is it possible to use the Windows VPN client? If so, what parameters must be specifed?

Hi Allen,

I think quick VPN is a solution offered for VPN to the RV series devices in the Cisco Product Line.

It falls under the Small Business class of devices.

Please move this discussion to the Small Business Security forum for expert advice.
