VPN problems

By madroxxx ·
I have recently installed a cisco VPN concentrator and installed ciscos VPN client on some remote computers. The problem I am having is that when these computers connect to the VPN they can no longer see(or ping) thier local network. both networks are using NAT, one with a 192.168.1.x address and the other with 10.10.10.x addresses.
Is there anything I can do to fix this?

vpn problem

by uabbasi In reply to VPN problems

Have your tried using a LMHOSTS file. I assume you are using netbios names to ping.

If both networks are using NAT esp on the server side, you need to open ports on your NAT device otherwise you would only be able to ping the NAT device and nothing beyond that. Hope this will be of some help. Please let me know.

2 diff networks.

by DukeBytes In reply to VPN problems

when the client uses the VPN to get to the network - it is only for that network. Its like the difference between an ISP dialup connection and your local lan.

Might want to think about a VPN between the two networks. That would work for everyone.

Good luck,

Post a workstation routing table

route print

The default gateway on the VPN connection is most likley the problem. If you see the gateway or whetever and your workstaion is on the 192 seg, that would be the problem.
