May I ask for some VPN assistance?

Fellow Flexers,

I am trying to get my 6700 remoted via a VPN connection using a microTik Routerboard. I have asked the tech support company to set up the VPN to allow the UDP discovery packet to be sent to my remote computer but they seem to be having a hard time figuring out what needs to be done.

Are any of you familiar with this router that might be able to help me in steering them in the right direction?

And if I might come to the well a second time, I am trying to set up a SonicWall TZ series router for a friend. Same issue. Any thoughts?

    Paul, I plan to try this but I'll need to get my VPN running again before proceeding. In the mean time, my thoery is to not use discovery but to address the 6000 direcyly with it's internal IP address (192.168.x.x). With an end to end VPN, my remote client PC should end up in the same address space as the LAN &, therefore, the Flex. Don't forget to set your router to assign the same IP address to the Flex's MAC address. You don't want to loose the Flex. Hi! Bob, W7KWS
