DGN2200 VPN question about versions

I am looking to buy the above router as I need a router with VPN. But I cannot understand if it has VPN or not. This page lists two versions of the router: http://support.netgear.com/app/products/family/a_id/19723. V1 mentions VPN in the User Manual while V3 does not. Some Internet shops list it as with VPN and others - without.

Some model on DGNxxx later add the VPN in the firmware

Go support.netgear.com and check.
If any firmware notes shows no added in do in VPN and products page say there is VPN and it has VPN from initial firmware

Re: DGN2200 VPN question about versions

I am now trying to configure VPN on that router. I am looking at the user guide from this page http://support.netgear.com/app/products/model/a_id/13012 and cannot figure out how to do it. It has a chapter on how to do it but all the addresses in the text and on the screenshots are different which makes it very confusing. Basically I need to set up VPN to able to connect to my home network from my office and I cannot do it. Is there any easy to follow how-to to do it?

I wonder if I must use Netgear ProSafe with this router or it does not matter. I'm on Ubuntu which has openswan.

Re: DGN2200 VPN question about versions

OK, yesterday i managed to establish DNG-to-DNG VPN tunnel and everything worked absolutely fine. I could connect and drop the connection without any problem. Today the connect button does not work at all and I cannot establish the tunnel. I am so frustrated.

Thanks a lot for your responses. One router has a fixed IP and another is dynamic. I actually need to initiate teh VPN tunnel from home (dynamic IP) to the office (static IP). I do not really need to to it the way around. Do I really need static IPs on both sides?

Re: DGN2200 VPN question about versions

doesn't matter the direction

ipsec is ip to ip so if dyndns report different IP then it can cause issues .'

Thanks a lot. Do you know if DGN2200 works with any other services than DynDNS?
