I'm working to set up a VPN between sites using RV042 at each end. I've set up a "lab" that emulates a simple version of the intended setup as follows:
Site 1 / LAN1: Site 2 / LAN2:192.168.1.192 192.168.1.128 255.255.255.192 255.255.255.224 i.e. .193-.254 i.e. .129-.158
LAN 1 host 1: LAN 2 host 2:192.168.1.213 192.168.1.137 gateway: 192.168.1.198 gateway: 192.168.1.157
RV042#1 RV042#2 LAN LAN192.168.1.198 192.168.1.157 255.255.255.192 255.255.255.224 WAN1 WAN1 223.111.2.009 223.111.2.008 255.255.255.248 255.255.255.248 - internet- (emulated by a hub) So, there is one computer on each LAN that points to the RV042 LAN interface as its gateway. The RV042s connect directly using the WAN1 ports using their assigned public internet addresses through a hub. That's about as simple as one could make it.
There are complementary tunnels set up in each of the RV042s that identify both LAN ranges and both public IP addresses of the RV042s.
The VPN tunnel doesn't "connect" even under these simple circumstances. So, I'm looking for typical RV042 setups that *do* work as I must have done something wrong. I just can't figure out what it might be! Is there anything obviously wrong above?
The LAN IP ranges are different so that traffic on one LAN can be routed to the other LAN through the VPN when the time comes. In the mean time, I just need to make the VPN work.
Any suggestions or pointers to URLs appreciated.
