Dear folks

https://www.telstra.com.au/content/...stra-gateway-prov7610-configuration-guide.pdf

I have got V7610 Netgear GATEWAY and I followed the attached document to setup Client to Gateway VPN page 5 and 6 says :

In the VPN remote virtual IP field, enter an IP address and mask and click Save. This is the range of IP addresses that the remote clients will be configured with when the VPN tunnel is set up. Note that this range must not be in the range of LAN IP addresses set up for the V7610 device "

I chose My gateway range of DHCP LAN ip address from 192.168.0.101-192.168.0.199.

1- How can I assign the VPN remote virtual IP say 192.168.0.52-192.168.0.80 same network but different range from the DHCP LAN ranges 192.168.0.101-192.168.0.199 ?

2- Snapshot below from the document above showing unique ip address been configured which is 192.168.16.1/24 ,,,,,Is this typo ? Shouldn't be 192.168.16.0/24 to refer to network address

VPN is working ip addresses confused me

Thx

So the simple answer is your device does not support VPN and LAN in the same subnet. The VPN must be a unique IP subnet that is different from your LAN subnet.

Clear like crystal as I thought mistakenly different range of ip addresses with the same subnet will be suffice.
But this is not the case as you said.

Referring to my second question in the first post ,,,,,Was that typo ?
