Posted on 2007-03-29

Has anyone succesfully used XP Pro IPSec to connect to Linksys VPN router BEFVP41 V1 router?  I've tried many times with no success.   I have followed this instructions from Linksys and Microsoft.  Any tips or comments would be welcome.

Good luck :-)
Best to use a 3rd party IPSec VPN client such as TheGreenBow
Specific documentation:

The RV0xx series of Linksys routers work well with the Windows PPTP VPN client.

Thanks cjkurtz. Sorry not more help with your specific problem, but I too have never been able to get it to work with the Windows client. BEFVP41 is most often used for site-to-site VPN's between two of these routers. For that purpose they work quite well and are relatively easy to set up.
TheGreenBow is a true IPSec client and will work.
Cheers !
