      Talking multiple VPN connections through netgear Router

      HI

      I'm not sure if this has been dealt with before on this forum but can someone tell me if its possible to allow multiple VPN conenctions to the same site from the router.

      The setep I have is that I connect into work from home via VPN using the standard MS client, this works fine. However when i initiate another conenction from, say my laptop or a work mates laptop with different logon details it connects to the VPN, but fails at the username/password stage. If i disconnect the first PC the other one can then connect OK! I know this is allowed on other routers as i have tried it from my old linksys and its works fine, and also from workingt at my workmates house who has the home BT router. however with the white Sky netgear router it does not seem to have this functionality.

      Is there a workaround to this or is it just a case that the sky router is cheap and nasty ?

      Re: multiple VPN connections through netgear Router

      I don't think the Netgear router supports multiple VPN sessions. I get the same problem when my wife and I are both working from home - only one of us can connect at any one time.

      Before Sky, I had a Linksys router and this worked perfectly with multiple VPN sessions.
