Cisco Router RV082 QuickVPN and Verizon 4g LTE hotspot

Last Modified: 2012-09-05
I have a Small Business Cisco Router RV082 in my office.  I have set up user VPN access and successfully connected to using the QuickVPN software from my home network wired and wirelessly.  However if I try to connect using my Verizon 4g LTE hotspot, the QuickVPN connection process gets to 'Verifying Network' than displays an error "The remote gateway is not responding. Do you want to wait?" YES or NO, pressing neither helps.

I called Cisco and they said its the 4g LTE, I called verizon and they said there is no issue with the device...VPN Passthrough is enabled and they do not restrict VPN in any way shape or form.

While I attempt to connect, if I am logged into the Router Webconsole I can see my connection occuring on the VPN Summary Page.  I states ONLINE for about 10 secs.

 The QuickVPN Log:

What confuses me is we have a QNAP NAS at this office behind the router.  The QNAP offers VPN connectivity as well..when I attempt to connect to the QNAP in the same fashion using Windows 7 built in VPN software it connects fine
