RV016 to RV042G with Dynamic IP?

2 sites, A and B wanting to create a VPN Tunnel between

Site A has static IP on Broadband Router with an RV016, static translations and port forwarding will all be done at this side.

Site B has dynamic IP on Broadband Router with an RV042G. Site B's broadband connection isn't actually ours, so would rather not tinker with Router settings, ie Dynamic DNS and port forwarding.

Is this possible? the Site B RV042G should be bringing up the connection to the Site A RV016, but it appears not to do.

For reference, the RV042G has connected to the RV016, but only with static IP's at both ends.

RV016 to RV042G with Dynamic IP?

I don't have access to the RV016 or RV042, nor are there emulators for me to look at, to give you a step by step, but what you're wanting to do should work.  In the RV016, you should be able to setup a Site-to-Site VPN where the remote Peer address is set to Any or 0.0.0.0.  In the RV042, the remote Peer address would be the Public Static IP of the RV016.  As you mentioned, the traffic would have to be initiated from Site B (RV042) for the VPN tunnel to come up.  Can you provide any screenshots of your configuration that isn't working?

Re: RV016 to RV042G with Dynamic IP?

Hello:

To configure a VPN tunnel to have to be aware that the same configuration for the tunnel has to be made in both of the devices. Please refer these two articles to confifure you VPN and  Dinamic DNS:

Dynamic DNS (DDNS) Configuration on RV016, RV042, RV042G and RV082 VPN Routers

Configure Static IP Address for Remote Gateway (IPSec VPN tunnel) on  RV042, RV042G, and RV082 VPN Routers

I hope this information help you
