Issue Connecting multiple users on WRV-210 Simultaneously

Hey there - I am using the WRV-210 VPN to connect two computers at the same location to another locations network. I am able to establish successful tunnels on both clients - but not at the same time (using QuickVPN client btw) When one is connected the other gives a gateway is not responding error (and vice versa). I have poured over forum posts for hours and tried many fixes but to no use, does anyone have an idea what could cause this?

Possibly useful info:

One system is running Vista the other XP

The client router IS running on a seperate subnet

When I read the log I am getting failed IKE pings before the gateway failed to respond error triggers

I am using seperate Users to connect - both users work seperatly

Again I can get one, or the other system working fine but not both at the same time. Thanks!



Hi Keith,

Is there any way you can provide a sample network diagram to clarify?

As I read it, 2 PC's in the same subnet behind a router cannot simulaniously connect via Quick VPN to a WRV210.  Is that correct?

One thing I would suggest trying is instead of leaving the port to Auto when you launch Quick VPN, try setting one to 443 and the other to 60443.

Thanks for the reply - yes 2 PCs in same subnet behind a router.

I did try playing with combinations of 443 and 60443 but did not achieve any success. Things I have tried is opening up all ports I could find related to VPN connections on the router and windows firewall (which seems redundant considering I can get one open connection) - I disabled windows firewall and re-enable on each system - I orignally was using a simple dlink router but upgraded to the TP-Link which is far more robust for networking options hoping that would change something . . .

Is there any settings on the WRV-210 that might affect multiple incoming connections?

Attached is a diagram of the network its quite simple.

Hi Keith,

Are there any NAT settings on the TP-Link device?  The only conclusion I can come to is something is not being NAT'd correctly and it's seeing the same IP address and thus not allowing the connection through.

As a last resort, can you test changing the network segment on the WRV210?  Say a 10.x.x.x network?
