I am hoping someone can help! I am trying to configure a VPN from my iPad to the Cisco/Linksys RVS4000 router. I have tried using the built-in Cisco client over IPSEC, L2TP, and PPTP. For the life of me I cannot get it to work. I would appreciate any insight on how to do this (if anyone has!).
Thanks in advance,
I have not used a RVS4000, but I googled it and notice people mentioning using "QuickVPN" which as far as I can tell is not compatible with the Cisco VPN Client that is on the Apple devices(they connect to ASA's and PIXs). Although I have never used L2TP or PPTP versions of the cisco client. I would have thought they would be less proprietary.
We have the same issue...Can't get the iPad to connect to the RVS4000....Tried everything...
If you configure a VPN user on the RVS4000, it just requires username and password but the iPad Cisco VPN client requires a shared key.
As Kenneth suggested, It looks like the RVS4000 client VPN only supports QuickVPN...
So, we configured a tunnel on the RVS4000 and tried to connect using PPTP and L2TP but no luck...
Anybody get this to work?
Here is the VPN log from the RVS4000...
#62: policy does not allow Extended Authentication (XAUTH) of initiator (we are responder). Attribute OAKLEY_AUTHENTICATION_METHOD
#64: OAKLEY_DES_CBC is not supported. Attribute OAKLEY_ENCRYPTION_ALGORITHM
#64: no acceptable Oakley Transform
I'm not sure how to pull the debug info from the iPad client...
After much research, I came to the conclusion that the RVS4000 cannot connect to the built-in iPad VPN client. The Cisco IPSec client does not work on the Cisco/Linksys small business line (it appears only QuickVPN works). Also, since the RVS4000 does not have a native L2TP or PPTP server built-in, these protocols cannot be used either.
In short, I gave up on it and set up an iVPN server instead. I have successfully connected my iPad to it via L2TP.
With the new IPad Version 4.2.1 it appears to support L2TP and PPTP. Has anyone tried to connect the IPad to a RVS4000 VPN with the new version software?
