Loss of LAN connectivity when connected to 3005

I have a user in a remote office who is losing connectivity to other computers on his LAN whenever he connects (via Cisco VPN client software) to our network through our newly installed 3005.

When he connects through our old RRAS server he doesn't have this problem.

Not sure if it matters, but he has private IP's stactically assigned to all of his PC's which then have public IP's mapped to them by his ISP.

Any ideas what might be causing this? Is something misconfigured in our 3005? Surely he doesn't need a 3002 at his location.


Re: Loss of LAN connectivity when connected to 3005

To configure the Allow Networks in List to Bypass Tunnel option, choose VPN Client Local LAN from the Split Tunnel Network List menu. The VPN Client Local LAN option allows all users in the group to access all devices on their local networks. If you want to restrict users' access to particular devices on their local network, you need to know the addresses of the local devices the remote users in this group want to access. Create a network list of these addresses, then choose that network list from the Split Tunneling Network List menu. You can apply only one network list to a group, but one network list can contain up to 200 network entries. (See the Configuration | Policy Management | Traffic Management | Network Lists screens for more information on creating network lists.) You also must enable Local LAN Access on the VPN Client. See the VPN Client Administrator Guide for more details.

I pulled this off the help screen under Configuration | User Management | Groups | Modify Group | IPSec

Here is a document that might help you also.

Hope that helps.

Re: Loss of LAN connectivity when connected to 3005


That does seem to have resolved most of his problems (he can print to network printers, sync his PlamPilot across the network, etc).

He still can't connect to a mapped drive when connected to our network via the VPN client software. He also can't see other computers in My Network Places.

It's weird because he obviously has access to some resources on his LAN.
