I was able to get greenbow tunnel to say connected but I noticed that I can not ping anything on the other side of the router. Also does the ipaddress/configuration show up in ipconfig.


My configuration looks something like this but as I mentioned the tunnel shows connected. Are the VPN userid and passwords on the rv082 needed for anything?

can you ping the routers IP? if you cannot ping any remote PCs check the firewalls have "Allow ICMP echo requests" enabled in the WinXP machines.

I have had problems with PING, using it to check connectivity... Instead try "telnet x.y.z.a 80" if you get a connection, the path is there... You will not be able to use telnet commands but you will know if a path exists!
