Could someone please provide me with instructions on creating a vpn tunnel between a Linksys RV042 and the Sonicwall SOHO 3.

I have followed the instructions at http://delilama.net/sonic/vpn/ but they do not work with this Linksys. There seems to be no Username field next to 'Agressive mode.'

Sonicwall Network:
firmware: 6.6.0.6
LAN: 10.1.1.0
LAN Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Sonicwall LAN IP: 10.1.1.254
WAN: 207.232.105.114
WAN Subnet: 255.255.255.240

Linksys Network:
Firmware Version: 1.3.7.4
LAN: 192.168.1.0
LAN Subnet: 255.255.255.0
WAN: 65.110.11.132
WAN Subnet: 255.255.255.248

>>"There seems to be no Username field next to 'Agressive mode.'"
On the RV042, above Aggressive mode, not in the advanced section, there is a box named Pre-Shared Key. Try using that instead. Should resolve at least that part.

I've done that but there's still no response when I click connect. It just says waiting for connection.

You may have already tried it, but have a look a the following sample page. It was created using the information you provided, and should work as the appropriate RV042 configuration, assuming the Sonicwall is set up with similar parameters to the page you provided.

Hope it is of some help.
