RV082 VPN access to some machines and not others -- mask problem???

Gang,
We have a Linksys RV082 router with an internal lan address of 10.7.5.101 with a mask of 255.255.255.0.

All of our workstations are on the address 10.7.5.X    255.255.0.0,
and our servers are on address 10.7.2.X  255.255.0.0.

I am finally getting a QUICKVPN connection in with the new firmware and software, but I can not access the servers.  I am able to connect to workstations if I know their address.

I believe the problem is the mask on the  RV082  and the inability to set it to 255.255.0.0.  I tried setting multiple subnets on the RV082 to 10.7.5.101  255.255.0.0 but that didn't help.  I may be forcing that function into something it doesn't do.  This did work using the NON-QUICKVPN connection, but not this one.

Is there any solution to this other than changing the 3rd octet of the servers, workstations and RV082 the same???

Thanks
Lee Johnson

The Linksys is only designed to work with up to 254 clients, so it can't handle the mask that you want to use.
Personally, I would change the internal mask on everything to be 255.255.255.0 and be done with it. You can't possibly need to support 65000+ hosts on one network behind a little Linksys router...
Else trade in the Linksys for a Cisco ASA5505 and use any  mask you want, with ssl vpn support and many many new features not available on the Linksys.

I was able to access my workstation from my laptop via QuickVPN since its IP is 10.7.5.36, so on the same network as the RV082.  So, I changed the RV082 to an IP of 10.7.1.2 / 255.255.255.0.  I still was not able to access our server at 10.7.1.10.  How does multiple subnets work on the RV082?  Does it just set up additional ip addresses and masks for the LAN port?  I take it that it does not utilize these with regard to QuickVPN, though.  Am I correct??

Thanks
