DNS Troubles When VPN Client Connection Active

Answered Question

Using the latest Cisco VPN client. Supporting remote clients ... when I VPN out to client sites I lose connectivity to my local exchange server. The client's DNS appears to become primary on a VPN connection resulting in it resolving to the public address of our exchange server. In the Transport settings I have 'allow LAN access'. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Whether or not local lan access is allowed is a setting on the remote device, not just in your client. To see if you are getting local lan access, look under the statistics/route details tab.

Nice catch - thanks! It was disabled for a particular client I was working with.

Could I get help on where to find the statistics/route details tab? What do you mean by remote device?
