Cisco RV120 VPN Issue

Good Day All-

I am having a bit of an issue with a VPN Connection.  I have a remote office that I would like to connect to a main office via a VPN.  I would like all the traffic from the remote office to flow over the VPN.  Both sites have a Static IP, although from two different providers.  The Main office has a Cisco RV180 and has an internal LAN IP of  The remote office has a Lan IP of  I have been able to establish a tunnel between the two, but do not seem to be able to get much else going.  On the remote site I tried to set the remote lan to, but the RV120 would not take that IP.  It did have an older firmware, so I updated it to the newest one out there-- forget the number off the top of my head.  I would like for the domain to extend across the VPN and everything to play nice with each other:)  I have read the administration docs, but it does not seem to address my issue.  I did look on a few forum sites and there was a number of complaints about this issue.  A Cisco tech (Through CDW) did tell me it was able to be done.  If possible, a step by step process that a 5 year old could follow would help a great deal.

    I've never worked with the RV120 (or any of those smaller devices) but VPN is VPN.  If you can establish a tunnel what is it you can't do?  How do you know you are successfully establishing a tunnel?  Does the RV120 or 180 have a config you can post here or is it just GUI driven?

    Essentially once you have a VPN tunnel established it will stay live as long as there is interesting traffic being generated.  Are your access-lists identifying the correct traffic to flow across the tunnel?
