XP vpn client to Linksys router

I am trying to find a linksys router that I can create vpn client on.  I do not need a tunnell between locations.  I want to be able to use the XP client from my office to connect to my linksys router at home( I do not have a server at home)  that is why I need to find a linksys router that will allow me to create vpn clients on it.   Does anyone know of a model number , can you post a link ?

Once again I do not need one that does tunnels, I need the xp client to connect directly to it.

The Linksys RV042 will allow you to create a VPN client connection to the router using either the Linksys QuickVPN client or the Windows built-in VPN client.

Are there any others, this one seems pretty sophisticated. I remember seeing one that looks like your typical linksys router,  It just basically has a screen where you create the users inside the router so that they can vpn directly to the router ... any ideas which model that is?

The other units such as the BEFVP41 are intended for site to site configurations between 2 routers only.
The RV042 will do that as well. You may be looking at that section of the configuration. For your purposes you don't need any of that.
If you use either the Windows client or the quick VPN client, you simply need to add a user and password to the router. There are separate pages for this under PPTP server (windows client) and VPN client access (Quick VPN client). I was going to reference the on-line web pages but the site is not working for me right now.

I uploaded screen shots of the configuration menus. Doesn't get much simpler than the RV042 <G>
