I need to build a VPN tunnel from my Android smartphone to Cisco RVS4000, but looking on some Internet forums I understand that I can't build a VPN tunnel between a smartphone and the router I purchased. Can you confirm this aspect? I am doubtful because in all the forums the web configuration interface of the router is Linksys-branded, whereas my model has a web interface Cisco-branded. Is it anyway the same model? Is there no way to get what I want with this router?
I read that the Cisco RV042 or RV042G should do in my case. With these models, can I build the VPN channel without any problems? I particularly interested in knowing if I must set static public IP addresses on router and smartphone, or if I can rely on a high level authentication.
After all, I would like to be able to download a vpn client on any Android smartphone and connect via a VPN tunnel to my router using the cellular connection.
thanks for your support. Unfortunately I am not clear about the question. On an Android smartphone I can set up different kinds of vpn: PPTP VPN, L2TP VPN, two kinds of IPSec VPN, and OpenVPN VPN. In the configuration web page of my Cisco RVS4000, I see only one option for setting up a VPN tunnel, that is IPSec VPN.
