Upgrading from Linksys BEFVP41 to RV082

I just purchased a Linksys VPN Router RV082 and found the VPN setup to be very different from the BEFVP41 that I currently use. Is there a simpler way to move over all of my tunnels and settings? I tried backup up the 41 into a file and then uploading it into the 82 but they use different file types. Any other ideas if there is a simpler way to upgrade or if I just have to manually figure out and build each tunnel? If so, does anyone know of any guides that will show what section in the 41 corresponds to what section in 82 as it can be quite misleading with so many options. Thanks!

There is no way to export/import the configurations. Only option is to manually configure. The basics should be pretty much the same but the RV042 offers more configuration options.
Glad to help with any specifics.

Rob, thanks for the answer. I have some questions on the tunnels though as there seems to be several 'local' and several 'remote' sections while the 42 has only 2 really. The biggest problem is in the option where in the 42 I would select 'Any Address' for remote and the 082 does not have that option. What option on it would best correlate with the any address one?

0.0.0.0 is used in routers to designate any address.
However, are you creating a site to site tunnel? If so you should really specify the remote network rather than than any.
What type of tunnel ? Let me know and perhaps  can be a little more specific

We are doing Linksys to Linksys tunnels. Unfortunately, most of the connections are for home VPNs and so they do not have static IP addresses. Because of this, we setup our company's static and then set that tunnel to 'ANY' so they can log into us. So I should use static and then 0.0.0.0 to signify ANY? This would help quite a bit to know as the linksys book doesn't say much!

You can, but there are security concerns with that.
The best bet with dynamic IP's it to set up a DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name Service) with someone like www.dyndns.com or www.no-ip.com. It is free. The DDNS service tracks your dynamic IP so that you always point to the site by name rather than IP. The RV042 allows this in it's configuration by choosing "Dymaic IP and Domain Name (FQDN)" under gateway type.
Use the gateway to gateway wizard/configuration by the way.

Linksys works well will DDNS for one site. Primary site, as in your case, should be static.
