I am trying to get 2 small offices connected via point to point VPN. I am trying to send very large files back and forth and at the rate it is taking to get this VPN up and running, it would be quicker to burn them to DVD and drive them over!!!! I am using 2 Netgear FVS114 VPN routers. I used the VPN wizard to setup both ends with the recommended settings. I am using the built in DHCP in the routers to doll out IPs. I have setup the 2 internal LANs with 192.168.1.XXX and 192.168.0.XXX. One end is a T1 with the LAN using 192.168.1.XXX range, the other is DSL using a dsl modem that has the outside IP on the modem, then it gives a local 192.168.1.XXX address to the connected device - router or PC. The dsl modem has an internal LAN address of 192.168.1.1, which you can use to access the web interface for the modem. The DSL LAN is the 192.168.0.XXX so as not to conflict with the modem 192.168.1.1 IP or the LAN at the T1 office. I can get the VPN connection established and all seems OK on the VPN status, but I cannot connect PCs from one side to the other. I cannot ping anything from one end to the other, including being unable to ping the router at the other end. I think the problem is related to the fact the DSL modem holds the external IP and also to the fact that it is using 192.168.1.1 for its internal LAN (which is also the default gateway for the LAN at the other office). Would it help to step up the IP range on one or both LANs so as not to be in the same range as the modem? Can I do something with the subnet masks? Should I reverse the IP layout for the 2 offices and then set the router connected to the DSL modem to 192.168.1.2 (one step above the modem) and set the default gateway to that IP? There are so many possibilities that I am at a loss as to which to try next.... Please, please help! TIA.
