RVS4000 vpn

I have a RVS4000 with client VPNs setup and have created all 5 users......trouble I run into is that when one of the users attempts to connect to the VPN from a second device (ie the sixth device to connect to the VPN), the connection does not establish....cannot ping remote server (using QuickVPN).  In looking at the logs, the device that isn't working is getting a different IP (172.16 vs 192.168).  I know I'm limited to 5 users, but am I limited to 5 devices as well?

Yes it is limited to 5 tunnels, please refer to the following data sheet:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/routers/ps9923/ps9928/data_sheet_c78-496735.html

VPN

• 5 VPN tunnels for remote client access

• 5 IPsec gateway-to-gateway tunnels for branch office connectivity

• Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES) encryption

• Message Digest Algorithm 5 (MD5)/Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA1) authentication

• IPsec NAT=T

• VPN pass-through of Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP), Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP), IPsec

I know I'm limited to 5 tunnels, but does that mean I can only use 5 machines to connect to those tunnels?  ie, I have a desktop and a laptop.  I want to connect with both, but not at the same time.  Does that constitute 1 tunnel (one username/password) or two tunnels (two different MAC or IP addresses). 

I have a user that has 5 users created and working fine, but we want to connect the last created user (#5) from two different machine at different times and I get the 'gateway timeout' error on the second machine.  It's Win7 64 bit box....I see the following in the workstation log

2012/08/23 09:30:02 [STATUS]One network interface detected with IP address 172.16.192.20

.........

2012/08/23 09:30:27 [STATUS]Tunnel is configured. Ping test is about to start.

2012/08/23 09:30:27 [STATUS]Verifying Network...

2012/08/23 09:30:33 [WARNING]Failed to ping remote VPN Router!

On the machine that works, I see a different IP address, 192.168.1.100, which is what the VPN is setup for ......why do i get a 172.16.x.x address, thus making me think it may be limited to only 5 machine names/MAC/IP address.

Does what I'm saying make sense?
