Totally new to this. I finally found a document that tells me the commands to config a vpn server, but before I found that, I just used the SDM software to make the tunnel.
Everything was gravy the first night I tested it after completing configuration, but now, i've lost a secure route or something, because my access isn't right. Let me give you some background.
Site A (internal 1.1.1.x 255.255.255.0) hosts the cisco with vpn server. It has 2 PCs with VNC servers. PC 1 has vnc port forwarded from router, whereas PC 2 does not (local only).
Site B (internal 192.168.254.x 255.255.255.0)is my client.
After the setup was complete, I went to test the connection and everything was working ok. The only thing "wrong", was that PC 1 was not able to have a VNC connection through VPN tunnel (no local IP access via 1.1.1.xx), rather I had to VNC to the public IP and let the router forward it. Everything else was working good though. I could use SDM, I could ssh to my router via local (over vpn) or public IP addresses, and access files.
Enter the next day: I connect from Site B again, this time, however, the "Secured Routes" under route details in the statistics window (from the vpn client software) is now missing the route that was in there the previous day. "184.108.40.206 network and 255.255.255.0 (although I think it displays this as 0.0.0.255) subnet mask" is missing. Not only that, but now, while vpn is connected, I can't ssh/sdm to the router via anything (either 1.1.1.xx local or public IP), nor can I vnc to PC1 via local or public, however PC 2 can still be accessed via VNC via vpn on local 1.1.1.xx
I'm a little confused here. Anyone able to help me figure this out?
