I have an XP PC which is at a remote site, which I need to connect to my company's network via VPN client. This PC has 2 NIC cards - one for a private LAN, which receives data via multicast, and a public LAN, which will be used for VPN.
When I connect the VPN, the multicast receiving stops. Is there any way to enable it on the second (private) NIC card?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I receive other traffic on that interface. Seems everything works on that NIC except multicast, like that address space has been "disabled".
Can you enable logging on the VPN client to Level 15. What you would do is first enable logging and change all the log levels to 3, then close the GUI. Open the vpnclient.ini file under c:\program files\cisco systems\vpn client\ and change all the LogLevel=3 to LogLevel=15. Save the file, then launch the GUI, and launch the Log Window - don't change any Log settings.
Once you connect, see if you catch anything in the logs when receiving multicast traffic about it being dropped etc. You could also run wireshark on that interface to see if the physical interface actually sees the packet.
