Exciting, strange and mysterious VPN behavior - faint of heart need not inquire!
Posted on 2010-11-09
Got a strange one. I have a Linksys RV016 with a VPN tunnel to a LInksys RV042 on the remote side. Tunnel is up and stable and I'm able to ping workstations etc.
I also have a WRT54G on the remote side connected to the RV042 and acting as a wireless AP (nothing is plugged in to the Internet port on the WRT54G).
I'm trying to ping the WRT54G from here and I don't get replies. Can't get to the web interface or anything. If I log in to the RV042 on the remote side and use the ping utility in the router I can ping the WRT54G without a problem. Also clients on the remote side can ping the WRT54G again, w/o issue.
I can ping all of the clients on the remote subnet except for the WRT54G. The local subnet is 172.30.250.0/24 and the remote subnet is 192.168.2.0/24. The WRT54G is 192.168.2.254
Very strange. Any thoughts (other than get a real router)?
