Does the 827 allow all traffic to the RV042?


Usually this issue is caused by a third party firewall/antivirus software on the client PC. If you have Remote Management enabled on the router, log into it and check the QuickVPN user status after the connection is attempted. It is likely that you will see that the user is connected. If that is the case, then the router is replying to the ping requests from the PC but the PC has something blocking those replies so it cannot confirm that the connection is established.

thanks for your help,

I tried this issue with blocked firewall and also disabled the antivirus  on clients PCs.

and configure the 827 to pass   any public IP traffic  to RV042 ,

and note that natting occures on 827
