We purchased a Cisco SA 520W a little more than a month ago and after configuring it we have had nothing but constant headaches with users trying to utlize the QuickVPN software.
SA520W firmware is at 1.1.42 and was one of the first thigns I did before configuring the rest of the device.
All users are using QuickVPN ver 18.104.22.168 as that is the version that I emailed out along with their usernames and passwords
Problem #1 - Unable to login with username even though I know for a fact that their username and password is correct, the only workaround once this happens is to create a brand new username, I'm getting very sick of creating a new user every 1-3 days.
Problem #2 - Once they are connected, if they can connect they will get the "Remote gateway not responding" thing pop up and sometimes if they wait long enough it will work again, however sometimes this leads to them getting kicked off and then leading to problem#1
I've looked through the forums and have found no answers other than people echoing the same problem, I was thinking about trying th shrewsoft solution but didn't want to waste my time as someone else had posted they weren't able to get it to work correctly with the 520.
I saw a case with very similar symptoms recently. After some troubleshooting I looked at the router logs and saw something about "fragmentation". I did a fragmentation test and found that the proper MTU for the cable internet connection was 1472. (The default was "Auto", which is 1500) After changing the MTU all users were able to connect and stay connected. Please try this and give us an update.
Today I just had this user being locked problem and posting while it's still fresh in my mind.
1. Setup account for user and quickvpn on client machine, connects and works like it's supposed to
2. User reboots PC and brings back quickVPN and I get the connection Error pop-up - Failed to establish connection...blah blah blah
3. Tried to login with other username that I know work(i.e. my test cases) and I get the Connection Error pop-up
These are some logs:

3. I created a new user and it works. It seems to me that the SA520 gets stuck with usernames and then it will "lock" for lack of a better term older accounts but new accounts work???
