Negotiating IP Security

From my remote PC and using QuickVPN, I can ping the WAN address of the RV082 but I cannot ping any of the LAN devices behind the router.  All have static IPs (DHCP is disabled) and some do not even have firewalls (such as printers.)
I get the message "Negotiating IP Security" even if I disable the RV082's firewall.
What does this mean?  How do I solve this to get through?
 
Like many other users I also get the occasional message "The remote gateway is not responding" on the Windows interface but I can still access the RV082's set up pages on the WAN.  Of interest, when I disconnect the QuickVPN connection, I can still work on the RV082's set up pages just like if I were still using the connection!
 
Any suggestion on resolving the Negotiating IP Security issue?
 
Thanks.

Hi...first off , reduce the MTU size on the router to 1452 , export the certificate , under "Advanced VPN Settings" , enable the Aggressive Mode , Keep alive and NetBios ... the Quick VPN version has to be the latest one...also , the router firmware ....

Thanks, that's valuable info.  Does it mean, however, that the RV082 cannot be set up properly for the QuickVPN client if at least one tunnel and/or group is active? I don't recall seeing anything about this in the manual...

Re: Negotiating IP Security

no..i don't think there should be a problem for the RV082 to work in case a tunnel is already established..
