Simple Inexpensive VPN

Hi,
We are looking for some type of VPN endpoint device that will allow people to connect from home. We are talking about max 5 users doing simple stuff, nothing major. If it has a client program it will make it even easier than using ipsec from windows. is the linksys rv082 worth anything?

Yes the whole RVO line is a good product.  I have been installing them for customers, it will allow you to go network to network and the router is the endpoint no client computer configuration.  However if you need to go client to network this will also work for you.  It comes with the Linksys Quick VPN client, and I have also used the Greenbow VPN client with this router also.

I would look at the draytek router if you have a broadband connection and what a VPN inbuilt

There are afew different 2600's but they seem very good and very easy to set up.
Hope this helps

Netgear, Dlink, Belkin all offer workable solutions.
persoanlly, for the number of users I would get a Cisco PIX 501.  Still damn cheap and it does everything. You can use the Cisco VPN client and you can get support for it from EE for ever and a day.

I have used 10 - 20 of the RV042's and had great success, but I have to agree with Keith, you cannot beat a Cisco, such as the PIX 501's, for versatility, dependability and support, and these days the cost is not that much more. The only downside to the RV042's is a lot of people seem to have problems with their VPN software client.

Here read about it --

same as 082, 4 ports, 082 is 8 port.  Makes no difference, with dual internet feed, you will want probably 24 ports anyway.  This router sounds like everyones answer to a guaranteed internet connect.

Early models had firmware problems, but if you update to the latest firmware, it is a great router.

I have had a lot of success with the Watchguard  Firebox X5. It has client software, supports up to 11 mobile user tunnels and is half the price of the Cisco PIX.
