Make sure you have the latest firmware on this device First.  Just had issues with one and firmware fixed them.

Manual to setup.  Used this to configure mine

Is the VPN going to another VPN device or to a microsoft server?



Mine is like this

Client(win 7)---RV180(static IP)---internet----RV180(static IP)----Server 2008
