Having trouble setting up QuickVPN connection to cisco RVS4000 router
Posted on 2011-03-24
Hi, I'm having trouble setting up either a quickVPN connection or VPN tunnel from home to work - whichever is easier to setup is fine. I have gone through various troubleshooting guides but can't get it working. I have previously had the quickVPN working, but have changed ISP at both ends and added a router at home. Current setup is:
Remote setup: Static IP from ISP -> tp link td8810 modem/router (192.168.1.1) -> cisco RVS4000 (192.168.0.1) -> linksys portswitch -> server (192.168.0.2) + network
Local setup: Dynamic IP from ISP -> tp link td8810 modem/router (192.168.1.1) -> cisco RVS4000 (192.168.2.1) -> linksys portswitch -> Dlink wireless router (192.168.2.3) -> laptop (192.168.2.108) + network
- ISP instructions are for PPPoA setup in modem, and i've read about needing to put the modem on bridging mode when used in conjunction with a router, but in bridging mode there is no option in the modem to put in username and password for the internet connection - so then I'm not sure to allow internet access to the home network.
- I have also tried just connecting via quickVPN with just the modem connected directly to my laptop, but that doesn't work either.
I also can't ping the remote internet IP from local, and the other way around. I don't want to make any assumptions and miss out on a possible solution, so I might just start with that info. I have some IT knowledge but am not an expert so please provide detailed info if possible. Thanks.
