I fought this quickvpn-wont-connect-for-any-money problem all day and night long (brand new RV042, bought in the noon) and, finally, after having a nice conversation with the "live chat" (which in fact seemed like a smart robot, i'm sure it was and sorry if wasn't, i came to a positive conclusion:
I started from factory default rv042 firmware (1.few.few) and went through 1.3.9, and with QuickVPN 1.1.0.
Live chat partner gave me a direct link to QuickVPN 1.2.6, protected with basic http authentication. Nice effect, i thought, and - 'cause this version failed too - i started to browse that web area with tons of firmware.
The final result is: Linksys RV042 v1.0 with 1.3.10 US firmware works really fine with QuickVPN v1.2.6, using the official step-by-step "VPN Client Access" how-to.
Hi, I have with my RVS4000 this problem (no chance for connect with QuickVPN, "Negotiating IP Security" all the time) since about 8 weeks. Since 3 or 4 weeks, I'm in contact with the Linksys Business Support. I gave them last week a VPN login and they have the problem as well. So, it's definitely not my fault. I'm anxious to see what solution they will find. Cheers, Patrick

Yes, you're completely right. I have two RVS4000 (one for me and one for a customer of mine) and VPN works neither here nor there. I tried many different firmware versions and gave also the business support the login data for the remote management. They(!) tried everything and VPN isn't working anyway. I bought the RVS4000 because of the VPN functionality and now, it doesn't work. Does anyone know how to resolve this? Best regards, Patrick Albert

No, I didn't. As workaround, I've set a port forwarding für ssh access to my server. I've talked many times with the linksys support (mail and telephone): I've tried many firmware versions, I've totally deactivated all firewall functions and I also gave them the username and password. They tested the VPN from their own PC to my RVS4000 and it didn't work either. They said they'll look what could be done, but that was some weeks ago. Meanwhile I'm very angry about it but what could I do? I want my money back.
It would be most helpful if you would provide a link to the 1.3.10 firmware that you used with the vpn client. Simply stating that the firmware which is unavailable and the current vpn client work does not help the rest of us out. With linksys being so unhelpful, maybe we could help each other out.
Has Linksys provided a solution to this yet ? I have a RVS4000 with the latest firmware from their website (1.1.14). Using QuickVPN 1.1.0 on a Windows XP SP2 system. I connect according to the green ICON but I can't access any resources on the network nor can I ping any ip addresses. My home network ip address is different from the office. I do get once in awhile a error message "The remote Gateway is not responding" but I am still connected even after I click on ok. any help would be appreciated. Thanks
Hi! I bought new RV042 and set it up according to default. I installed the QuickVPN also in one of the laptop. I'm trying to connect to the VPN but giving this message - "the remote gateway is not responding. you will now be disconnected. please try again later" . Can anyone help me with this?
