Unable to communicate with local resources and VPN connects
I am running into this issue more and more lately and I am not sure where the issue lies.
I have a bunch of remote offices that are setup as workgroups. Each pc in that workgroup runs the VPN client to conenct back to us for certain resources.
Every so often a pc will not be able to communicate by TCP/ip to other pc's in it's workgroup. They can't ping others (by IP address) or be pinged. Most of the time we have to uninstall the VPN client and reinstall it to regain IP connectivity. Sometimes just stopping the VPN cleint and rebooting will take care of it.
Has anyone else ran accross this. I am not sure if it is the version of cleint I am on (3.61), windows 2000, or the network driver.
Re: Unable to communicate with local resources and VPN connects
I feel that once the client is able to establish the VPN tunnel, the sucess or failure of the communication over the tunnel depends on the upper layers. In other words, you need to look at the OS on your PC's. One document that will help you is "Troubleshooting Microsoft Network Neighborhood After Establishing a VPN Tunnel With the Cisco VPN Client" http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/471/vpn-net-hood.html
