Can't access SQL cluster DB over vpn

Answered Question
Oct 18th, 2010

we have MS SQL cluster server. We use MS Visual Studio 2005 to access DB using cluster virtual IP address.  On LAN, it is not a problem.

But it does not work over the vpn unless  I allow access to ip addresses of physical SQL servers through VPN. I ran wireshark both on vpn and on LAN, Visual Studio does not communicate with physical servers.  VPN is ASA5540 and we are using VPN client 5.0.

the DB is used by contractors and I'm reluctant to allow them access to the physical boxes.

I would appreciate if anybody can tell how I can resolve this.

thank you.

I have this problem too.

Thank Prapanch.   That is a good idea. I'll run captures on ASA.  I already run wireshark on client and I did not see any attempt to access server's physical address.
