Lnksys RV042 VPN error message.

I am having some problems configuring my Linksys RV042 VPN router.  I am trying to create a VPN tunnel so that I can remotely connect to my office PC from home.  I am using the QuickVPN client that was included.

Here are the steps I have completed
1. group VPN tunnel configured on the router as per the instructions.
2. Created a Userid and password
3. exported and imported the client certificate onto my home machine.
4. Installed the QuickVPN client

after following the instructions provided, I am still unable to connect to the rv042 via QuickVPN.  I get the following message.

"The remote gateway is not responding. Do you want to wait?

Any help is appreciated.

For an RV082 ( 8 port not 4 )  I have used static user and password with JUST the Windows DIalup VPN , and no additional software.

Also make sure you have the latest firmware and check the Linksys site for better instructions.

ALso what do the logs on the router and the client say ?

I hope this helps !
