Linksys QuickVPN for Vista

I have Linksys WRV210 using QuickVPN which is working on a Windows XP machine but it will not work on vista.

Linksys says the QuickVPN does not work on Vista but I can't have that LoL.

Any one know something I don't?

Should be a log file in your quickvpn install directory, if you post the output I can see if anything interesting is there.

Looks like you need to add a firewall entry permitting udp 500 and udp 4500

To what address? My router?

To the VPN router's public IP address

or you can be reasonably safe if you allow it for anything

1) is that on the VPN side or the client?
2) How  do I go about adding add an entry permitting udp 500 and udp 4500?

donmanrobbCommented:
On your vista client side, if your using windows firewall
Open it up (search for firewall.cpl) or windows firewall
Goto exceptions, add port then give the rule a name say VPN-1 choose UDP and port 500 click open
then add another port for udp 4500 then click okay out of windows firewall.

Seems a lot of people have this issue. Try turning off the firewall entirely, if that fails turn it back on and try to connect your computer directly to the modem.

Linksys does not having anything that will work on Vista yet. Even if they say that they do  found out the hard way that they do not.
