A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is used to connect endpoints on different networks together over a public network, such as the Internet. This feature is useful to enable remote users who are away from a local network to securely connect to the network over the Internet. A VPN Client is a remote user authorized to access the VPN. VPN clients are used for the Cisco Quick VPN program. Cisco QuickVPN makes it easier to setup the VPN using basic VPN security settings. VPN policies do not need to be configured.
This article explains how to configure VPN clients on the CVR100W VPN Router.

Note: If the Local IP address of the router is a 192.168.x.x private IP address, a warning label is displayed to indicate that in order to ensure proper functionality, the router will need to change its IP address to 10.x.x.1 to avoid conflicts with the remote network. This can affect connectivity with devices on the Local LAN with static IP addresses. The router needs to reboot for the settings to be applied.
