VPN tunnel issue
Posted on 2006-04-01
I have two locations, each one has a Netpoia 33xx dsl box attached to a Linksys WRV54G. One location has 4 PC's and a Win2003 server, the other just has 2 PC's. I need to create a VPN tunnel between locations using the Linksys devices. I believe I have them configured correctly. I tried setting the Netopia to bridging using info I found on the Netopia site, however if I uncheck the IP Gateway box, I can't get to the internet. The IP scheme on one end is 192.168.1610 and the remote end is 192.168.163.0. The real IP address's for the Netopia is through PPOE to SBC. I picked the lowest usable address of the 255.255.255.248 subnet for a static IP on the Linksys. I have both WAN and LAN/Wireless routing set up so I can get to the internet from each end. I have the tunnels set correct on each end with security. If I do a whatsmyip from each location, it returns the real IP address that I have a ssigned the Linksys device. I can ping the Netopia and the SBC DNS entries from the Linksys, but cannot ping or traceroute from the Netopia's back to the Linksys. I need this to work by Monday. I've talked with Linksys support ..... no help there. They blame it on the Netopia setup.
