RV320 VPN setup

I managed to setup an Easy VPN tunnel into my office cisco RV320 router - my office subnet is 192.168.1.1 and my VPN is 192.168.2.1. Unfortunately, I cannot access any devices on my office LAN after connecting through my VPN (only my gateway, otherwise all pings fail). I can access my office computer  through RDP, but would prefer to download files without the need to always connect to the remote desktop. PPTP works fine, however, that is not an option due to low security.

Any help is very appreciated, thank you.

I have an RV325 in my home office.

Make sure on the RV320 end that the internal address group is set for Subnet and not IP address. Make sure the Tunnel type is Client to Gateway (Not Gateway to Gateway).

If you have the incorrect Gateway type, you need to delete the tunnel setup and make a new one.

For Client to Gateway, use Aggressive mode, not Main mode.
You also may need to set NAT Traversal ON in the Advanced Setup.

I use Client-to-Gateway, Aggresive mode and NAT-T.

Not sure what you mean by "internal address group is set for Subnet and not IP address." My wan 1 IP  is different from my lan IP, I dont use VLANs, the router is not behind any other router, just a modem.

Thanks for helping me with this issue.

In the RV320 Setup, the Local (RV320) Gateway Type would be IP Only and be the external IP address. The next setting Local Security Group type would be Subnet and in your 192.168.2.0 with a Subnet Mask 0f 255.255.255.0

That allows the Client to see all device on your office setup (not just the router)

I realized that my remote network had the same IP addresses as in my office and I believe this prevented the VPN to access devices. Thanks for your help.
