I have been trying for some time to use the Cisco RV340 to connect to a commercial VPN provider. The router should act as a VPN client. After extensive research in the user manual and various forums, I have now found that this is apparently not supported.
The device can be used as a VPN server, as well as for site-to-site VPN connections, but not as a VPN client. The "Teleworker VPN Client" feature would be the best option, but it only works if the other end is also a Cisco device.
Apparently, they're trying to establish such a VPN connection via the WAN options.
While I haven't tried that guide myself yet, this approach makes me think. The WAN connection options offer PPTP and L2TP, both protocols that are also used to connect to a commercial VPN service.
Could this be a way to connect the RV340 as a client to a VPN service after all?
If not, what is the difference between PPTP or L2TP in those WAN options and PPTP/L2TP in the scenario of a client-to-site VPN connection?
