I have a netgear DG834v2 firmware .25.  Iam having problems setting it up, it only has the "VPN Policies" and not "IKE Policies" like the netgear fvs318v3.  Can anyone point me in the right direction for a step by step guide to create a client to gateway tunnel.  I am using the netgear client software.

    I need a guide to setup a DG834v2 in main mode only.  Client to gateway!

    I found some more manuals

    Original Manual

    Installation Guide

    Manual for Firmware 2.10.22 and later. 5 VPN tunnels are supported, contrary to the manual.

    Manual for Firmware 1.04.01

    Accepted Solution

    Johno, I haven't seen a guide for setting up a VPN with the DG834's other than the basic manuals, and I am very doubtful you will find one that is step-by-step for various modes, probably the closes one is the one I referenced above;  The router configuration is similar enough with the different models that you should be able to work from that. As for main mode, I believe aggressive mode is usually used for client to gateway configurations.
