Idiot's Guide to Creating VPN tunnels on RV082

Posted on 2008-10-20
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I have a RV082 Linksys router.  I plan to deploy 1 at each of my 3 locations.  I need help on setting up Location A to accept the connections of the other locations.  Specifically the Tunnel settings to use.  I have a static IP at Location A and the two satellites are dynamic.  

I cannot seem to find any information on the most basic of setup formats.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Than your client needs to be and for example.

thanks for the help.
