CaseStudy Success Story #33 (January 28th , 2011 9:57:47 PM)

Thanks VPNCaseStudy for your great trouble shooting information. As a technical writer, sometimes you don't want fluff, you just want to know how something is supposed to work with a good example. I found the VPN information I needed for a Netgear VPN on VPNCaseStudy.com (the only place on the Internet that had it). The breadth of knowledge available from self-proclaimed Netgear fanatic June Mizoguchi is unbelievable! Thanks for your dedication to VPN issues and the Netgear platform

Thanks, Dirk Zwart

CaseStudy Success Story #32 (January 25th , 2011 6:55:56 PM)

Many thanks for the information supplied in the case study, without it I do not think I would have solved the problem of the new Netgear VPN client connecting to the FV336G in Windows 7.

Thanks, Nigel Bedford

CaseStudy Success Story #31 (January 20th , 2011 5:11:34 PM)

Setting up router-to-router and client-to-router VPNs can be difficult even for experienced tech support consultants due to the wide range of hardware devices on the market. June Mizoguchi’s vpncasestudy.com website is extremely helpful as a library of example VPN configurations between all sorts of hardware. I used his real-world examples to help me set up several VPNs using Netgear FVS338 routers and ProSafe VPN Client software. vpncasestudy.com saved me time and lots of headaches.

Much Thanks, John D.

CaseStudy Success Story #30 (January 17th , 2011 1:31:27 PM)

Configuring our client connection to our VPN router took less than 5 minutes with this case study instead of fiddling with it for hours. Great work!

Thanks, Alexis Bilodeau

CaseStudy Success Story #29 (December 28 , 2010 8:23:20 PM)

I heard of vpncasestudy.com through Netgear's forum and was able to find a very useful collection of documents that helped me configure a Netgear FVS338 for a client of mine. Would not have managed without your help as Netgear's official documentation proved to be inadequate.

Thank you, Mosse R.

CaseStudy Success Story #28 (January 3, 2010 11:33:42 PM)

I recently purchased a Netgear PS121 USB print server. I had trouble making it work with all the computers in my house until I found you help page titled "How you can I setup print server without using Netgear Port". Using your very clear step-by-step instructions I saved hours of aggravation and now have a printer that works from every machine in the house (all 5).

Thanks for the awesome directions!

Thanks, Dan

CaseStudy Success Story #27 (November 18, 2009 5:22:29 AM)

After looking all over the internet for a way to get  IPSecuritas to connect with a FVS336G,  June sent me a Case study on the topic. It worked flawlessly, and i was up and running in a couple of minutes! Thanks for all your work on the Netgear forums!

Thanks, Martin S

CasetStudy Success Story #26 (August 26, 2009 11:46:17 PM)

I successfully leveraged Case Study #120 (Section 2.2:  Router to Router ("FVX528 etc. to older models")). Using the examples, I successfully created a VPN tunnel connecting a FVS336G and a FVS318v3.  Remote Desktop, shared network drives and printers are all working.  THANK YOU! 

Thanks, Kevin

I’ve already downloaded and installed your FVS114 policy for Netgear’s ProSafe VPN Client and it works really well. I can’t believe the Netgear documentation is so out of date (in comparison to the actual router configuration). Your website has already saved me lots of time.

CasetStudy Success Story #18 (Sunday, August 10th, 2008 12:29AM)

"I have found vpncasestudy.com on Netgear's support forum. I needed to find out what is wrong with my FVS318v3 / ProSafe VPN configuration. Errors in the logs were pointing to IKE, but according to the Netgear's manual ("Reference manual for the ProSafe VPN firewall FVS318v3") everything I configured was correct.  Within a few minutes I was given access to case studies. Amazing work. June offered his help to deal with my problem. He knows these devices in depth. There was a mistake in the manual. My issue is now resolved. Thanks a lot, June. All the best to you."

This site is great, I can now access my internal VLAN passing thru my Netgear FVS114, tunneling thru my Cisco 2621 on DMZ network thru the internet. I just want to say "Thank you" and keep up the good work.

Thank you for your website. I am using Open IPSecuritas to connect to my Netgear FVS114. It works great. Your tutorial on how to set this up was extremely helpful. Thanks again.

Thanks, Jeff Loder

Casestudy Success Story #15 (Monday, March 24th, 2008 1:35AM)

I would like to let you know that we have successfully implemented our VPN solution. After various technical issues we finally found the right mix of third party vpn clients and router configurations.

VPN Case Study was an integral part of the engineering process. The documuntation we found at VPN Case Study was accurate and helpful. Your site is by far the most complete guide for network engineers that are looking for Netgear solutions. Your willingness to provide personal technical support is amazing and a blessing to the Netgear community. Thank you very much for all your help and dedication.

Thanks, Roderick Villanueva-Clarus Management Solutions

Casestudy Success Story #14 (Thursday, March 20th, 2008 5:45PM)

The FVS318v3 to RV042 configuration (Case Study #121) worked perfectly! My client has been up and running for the past 3 days without any glitches. Thanks again for your help.

Thanks,Chip Baker (US)

Casestudy Success Story #13 (Monday, March 17th, 2008 5:36AM)

June was extremely helpful in getting our netgear router to communicate with our prosafe client.  After following the netgear reference manuals unsuccessfully for several hours, we came across vpncasestudy.com which gave us the right tools to do the job properly.  Thank you June, not sure where we would have been without you on the case.  

Thanks ,Tony Goodman (UK)

Casestudy Success Story #12 (Wednesday, March 5th, 2008 3:39AM)

I’ve connected a ProSafe client, in a virtualized(vmware) Windows 2000 pc, to a NETGEAR DGFV 338. I tried to follow the Netgear Wizard documentation, with no luck: it allowed me to connect, but not to ping a pc in the lan side of the firewall. I’ve then understood I had to use “mode config”, and I was almost done: your documentation helped me understand which IP addresses I had to put where, and (after 2 days of work, damn me J ) I’ve been able to connect and communicate with internal network.

Thanks, Stefano Giunchi (Italy)

Casestudy Success Story #11 (Wednesday, November 28th, 2007 9:15 AM)

June is a great resource for anyone attempting to get a VPN working.  I highly recommend seeking out his expertise even before calling Netgear

Casestudy Success Story #10 (Thursday, November 8th, 2007 5:30 PM)

For weeks, I have been unsuccessfully trying to take hand on my pc away from home. I use Vnc and have to pass through my  NETGEAR DG834G router. I found some solutions on several french forums, but no one was working :((

I finally posted my question at an english spoken NETGEAR Forum. A few hours later, only one person helped me : June. He asked me some details and understood my problems. After 2 or 3 days and 2 or 3 mails (I'm not an expert and wanted him to precise what I didn't understand - and 6-7 hours between KY and France...), it was working !! It's really great to find kinds of persons like him Yes,  thank you so much June !

Thanks, Philippe LEGOUEIX - PARIS - FRANCE

Casestudy Success Story #9 (Thursday, September 27th, 2007 1:16 PM)

After having endless trouble with the Wireless Router from Netgear - WTG624 v3 (simply setting up my router with my laptop) I got some help form June Mizoguchi. He systematically took me through all possibilities as to why i had this problem. Confidently telling me what to do next which was assuring as he seemed to know exactly what he was talking about and exactly what he'll try next if the problem was not resolved.

He knew about existing problems with the hardware of my computer, which again re-assured me with finding a resolution. Eventually I used another computer to set up my Wirelss Router out of sheer frustration with my network adapter. Which was just being stubborn with my router!

He was polite too and didnt show himsef to be lethargic or carless, which was nice :) Great customer service!

Cheers June, keep up the good work :D

Thanks, Lewys Rees (UK)

M111P & FWG114P - Thank you!

I was having problems configuring my DM111P modem and FWG114P router combo. It wasn't quite as simply as plug the boxes in and run the wizards!


I read the relevant threads and pieced together the info I needed and have now got it all working. There were a number of factors involved with my set up, so there was no key bit of advice was, but setting the DM to RFC bridge mode was perhaps the first big step along the road.

So a HUGE thanks to the advice posted by contributors and moderators alike (particularly jmizoguchi). Just wanted to let there was a problem solved by you all without me posting the question!

Thanks, Netgear Forum User "yello"
Casestudy Success Story #7 (Friday, August 24th, 2007 11:17 AM)

I purchased 5 FVS318v3 Cable/DSL ProSafe™ VPN Firewall with 8-Port Switches for a customer (who has 5 stores) to setup a VPN network over AT&T DSL.  I tried using the Netopia 3000 with VPN and firewall, but got no support from Netopia or AT&T, AT&T wanted me to use their VPN through routed switches (which cost more) and Netopia wanted me to buy more equipment.  So per a friend who was using 8 NetGear FVS318v3 Switches and 1 CISCO VPN manager I was talked into buying NetGear. 

I had problems with the information given from NetGear and the support from AT&T, but with the help of June Mizoguchi I was able to get all of the FVS318v3 Switches configured and working properly.  Also he helped me with the configuration of the NETGEAR ProSafe VPN Client software which helped with the 4 at home sales people whom had to get into the VPN from home. 

I think the service June has provided was the best service I've ever recieved.  I would rate the setup of the equipment as a 5 on a scale of 1-10 and the support June has given me as a 10.  I did get some support on a FVS124G that I just purchased from NetGear and I would rate the NetGear support group as a 4, because it took so long for them to get me the answer to the problem. 

Also thanks to June for the help on the setup of the FVS124G which is in use with both ports working.  June keep up the Fantastic work, without you a lot of people would still be in the dark on setting up NetGear products.  I know I was one of them!

Thanks, Julian Brando (USA)

I received a call from a  June who talked me through the final step in connection and we both celebrated when it was up and running.   At 67 I impressed myself that I could do this  with your help and believe me I am not easily impressed with me..... Thanks a lot for your help...Three cheers for NET GEAR and June...

Casestudy Success Story #4 (Wednesday, July 19th, 2006 7:30 PM)

"Finally got VPN setup with the help of June and VPNCaseStudy" (Blog Posted at Andrew Connell site)

"Two months ago I expressed my public frustration with Linksys after I went through two of their BESFX41 routers and a terrible experience with their customer support. A few weeks back I finally got everything setup and configured with a Netgear device and a little help from June @ VPNCaseStudy.com. Because I think good customer service should be applauded (and poor service should be condemned), I wanted to post this testimonial but work got in the way. Finally I have a moment to post this!

What I wanted was simple: a hardware VPN solution for my home network so I could connect and commit changes to my Subversion repository and virtual machines running on my server without poking holes in the router's built-in firewall. After being utterly frustrated with the Linksys experience, I tried the Netgear FVS114, a tiny little box (compared to Linksys' over sized bulky boxes) with 4 10/100 ports with VPN capabilities and some great security features (SPI firewall, DOS protection, & intrusion detection via SPI).

Setup was a breeze, I had swapped out my old Microsoft 802.11a/b/g router and set all the configurations correctly. Of course, as expected, the DHCP setup actually worked compared to the previous Microsoft solution. Previously it wouldn't hand off a specific DNS server to my clients on my network... it always returned itself and wouldn't forward requests to my internal DNS server. This time, the Netgear did (duh... is it too much to ask for something to work as advertised? yup, sometimes it is).

But I had a problem with the VPN setup. Frankly it was confusing as heck as this developer knows little about networking, especially VPN and IKE policies, obtaining & configuring a VPN client (Netgear ProSafe VPN is what I used) and such. A quick find dropped me on www.vpncasestudy.com. After poking around a bit, I posted a question. The guy who runs the site, June M., responded within an hour. Long story a bit shorter, we traded emails over the course of 2 weeks and finally got everything working! Without his help, I'd be up a creek without a VPN solution. Thanks June!

Thanks, Andrew Connell (USA)

"Considering FVS114 and VPN CLient"

After much research into which VPN solution would be most economical and relatively easy to set up and maintain I decided to try the Netgear FVS114 solution and found that June was obviously a well respected resource on the Netgear support community board.

Even though I am relatively savvy regarding VPN basics, I was trying to be fairly creative with my solution and I ran into some roadblocks. June has been very patient, responsive and extremely helpful in guiding me through these roadblocks to a successful implementation. I regard this as a personal milestone for myself and I thank June for all his help in getting me there.

Thanks, Andrew Maddocks (USA)

Casestudy Success Story #2 (Thursday, April 20th, 2006 1:30 PM)

"I am trying to find information regarding the FWG114 and FVS318 for VPN. I am trying to connect the two together. "

Just wanted to let you know that I have finally be able to get my VPN up and running. I'm not sure if you recall that I mentioned I could "connect" to the VPN and the VPN status box did confirm it was a successful connection, yet I was unable to ping or access to my network resources. I found out the cause of the problem is from my work network side, that they block the outgoing, non company VPN traffic. I confirmed my finding by trying out the VPN connection by my ISP's dial-up connection, and from Starbucks' T-Mobile connection. All have been sucessful!

I just want to drop you a line and thank you, for taking the time to help me out.

Thanks, James Cheung (USA)
