VPN Clients (service cvpnd.exe) prevents access to client

We have found that on any of our Win2K users using Cisco VPN 3.6.1, 3.6.3, 3.6.3B, that access to the workstation is blocked as soon as the installed VPN service starts (cvpnd.exe).

When this service is stopped--of course--using the VPN client is not possible ("The necessary VPN sub-system is not available. You can not connect to the remote VPN server").

Is this by design? I can understand this need, maybe if it were document AND an option while you were connected to the remote VPN server, but when the VPN session is not established, we still have need to contact our remote users' desktops that are running various other services as well.

Anyone with any ideas or workarounds?

Hi,

In order to allow to your PCs(with vpn client installed) access from other workstations when your vpn is not launched, go to, Options drop-down on the client, and then Uncheck "Integrated Firewall Always (ON)" thing.

it should work just fine.

Thanks - Afaq
