New to CISCO RV340. Recommended Uncencrypted PAP for L2TP/IPsec on Windows Built In.
Hello. I'm quite new to this CISCO box. I had the IPsec setup with a Mac but was having trouble with the Windows 10 built in client. Finally got some really helpful technicians from CISCO who connected to my router and sorted out the issues. While doing so, I noticed that the recommendation was to change the Security setting under the VPN properties. The setting was to Allow these protocols and only check Unencrypted password (PAP). Is this something I should be concerned about?
I was told this is a limitation of the Cisco RV340, because of the lack of a Radius server, Unencrypted PAP was required for it to work. Only if I had a RADIUS server or some sort of Active Directory connected could I use something like Microsoft CHAP. However, I believe that other VPN routers use higher level encryptions than this. Please advise as I hope to put this into production for a small dental office. I would really appreciate feedback from insightful community members. Thank you in advance. The other router I was looking at was a TPLINK ER6120.
