I am hoping someone can help! I am trying to configure a VPN from my iPad to the Cisco/Linksys RVS4000 router. I have tried using the built-in Cisco client over IPSEC, L2TP, and PPTP. For the life of me I cannot get it to work. I would appreciate any insight on how to do this (if anyone has!).
I have not used a RVS4000, but I googled it and notice people mentioning using "QuickVPN" which as far as I can tell is not compatible with the Cisco VPN Client that is on the Apple devices(they connect to ASA's and PIXs). Although I have never used L2TP or PPTP versions of the cisco client. I would have thought they would be less proprietary.
After much research, I came to the conclusion that the RVS4000 cannot connect to the built-in iPad VPN client. The Cisco IPSec client does not work on the Cisco/Linksys small business line (it appears only QuickVPN works). Also, since the RVS4000 does not have a native L2TP or PPTP server built-in, these protocols cannot be used either.
In short, I gave up on it and set up an iVPN server instead. I have successfully connected my iPad to it via L2TP.
