I need a VPN that will always work and be very secure. My customers and I usually use RV042 or 82 so I like to use what I sell, but the quickvpn software is buggy and is sometimes blocked.
I currently have an RV042 at my office and use quickvpn. At some sites I visit the traffic must be blocked because it will not connect and at others it does. I like it when it works because it is IPSEC with a certificate. People tell me to use pptp between the router and laptop because its all buit in and easy, but I am a security nut and want this tight.
At a main job site of mine I cannot using the quickvpn client as their firewall must be blocking me. Someone said I could setup an l2tp session between theRV042 and me, but I have not tried.
I have downloaded the open vpn virutal machine. I could add that to my vmware host, and use it to make a cert and use openvpn on my laptop. I dont know how, but from what I gather I might be able to route web traffic through the VPN to the office and go out that way to avoid download restrictions and content filters at the various offices I visit. Currently when quickvpn works, I remote desktop an office machine and browse/work from it, but the above feature would be nice if its not too complicated.
What would you use?
