VPN up but still can't ping!

By dishneggo ·
Here's my scenario:
Mesh VPN, 2 ISP's using Fiberlogic appliance

HQ --vpn-- Tampa Data Center
HQ --vpn-- Chicago Office

If I open a Ping session, I can ping some internal addresses in Tampa and Chicago but they time out after a while. Meanwhile, to confuse things a bit more, I can ping from Tampa to HQ with no problem.

I've been breaking my head and ran out of ideas. It seems like a VPN issue but I have checked the logs and even contacted support and they found nothing. Clearly the VPN is UP if I can ping from Tampa to HQ and Chicago.

Please anyone with any ideas please shout!

Thanks,
D

Site to Site the routers establish and maintain the tunnel

by Screen Gems In reply to Re: what type of VPN?

users access the tunnel to pass data. Hosts using the tunnel act as though they are on the remote network. To pass data, they need an address on the remote network subnet. Hosts get that address through a DHCP relay agent or IP helper addresses.

Also, firewalls on hosts may block ICMP (ping) requests.
