I have a strange problem where i have 2 sites connected  using  a VPN on 2  CISCO877.  But WMI scripts are not running across the link. if i pull these out an replace them with a Draytek, the scripts run fine.

Broad Lane LAN ----- Cisco 877 ========= Internet & VPN Tunnel ============== Cisco 877 ---- Southam LAN1.0.39.0/8                                                                                                                 The server at Broad Lane is  GIMILI ( and at Southam is FRODO ( The following will not work through the tunnel from Broad Lane LAN. Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\\root\cimv2") if err.number=0 then serverexist=true else serverexist=falsemsgbox(server.exist)

Is is possible for the  CISCO877 to block WMI traffic?

Any suggestions please?
