    I am new to VPNs and I am having a lot of trouble getting the VPN to
    work on the Linksys BEFSX41 router. As fars as I am concerned, this is
    a pathetic product which does not work. I have spent several hours
    trying to get this thing to work without success. Technical support
    from LINKSYS is fuill of morons. Even they don't understand what is
    not working and there solutions are way out in left field.

    I have seen several posts on this problem, and using LINKSYS technical
    support has been a total waste of time.

    My configuration is as follows:

    VPN server: Windows XP professional
    Router : BEFSX41

    I set up my windows XP corporate machine at home to connect to the

    The setup on the client works fine, but I keep on getting Error 721.
    The VPN server does not give a response.

    I have done the port forwarding, 1723 and 47 to the static IP of my
    VPN server. I have also enabled PPTP pass through.

    I am using the latest version of firmware.

    Any suggestions?

    BTW - LINKSYS ROUTERS SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am have about the same problem, however I can not even get the
    computer to recognize the router. I need to get a copy of the firm ware
    as when I moved I misplaced it. I have access to a lot of 3com stuff
    and will try that next if I can't get the firm ware.

    Funny thing is it worked like a charm with cable, now I have switched
    to DSL and the damn thing refuses to work.\
