VPN Issue when tethering iPhone using Bluetooth

Hi all.

I tether my laptop to my phone using USB, WiFi or Bluetooth as my primary internet connection (as I work remotely).

My preference is to connect using Bluetooth (persistent connection, low power), however if I try to connect my laptop to the Cisco VPN, it doesn't work: the VPN connection seems to be made correctly, but I can't see the my work mail server, intranet or http proxy.

If I connect using USB or WiFi, the VPN connects and everything work fine.

I don't like USB because every time I need to take the phone from the dock to take a call or walk away from my computer, I lose internet and VPN and have to reconnect.

I don't like WiFi because it uses too much battery.

Can anyone suggest what could be causing this issue?

Thanks!

Ray

Hi,

Your best bet is to run wireshark on your workstation to see how the packets are being sent to the iphone. That will tell alot right off the bat. Also what are you running for your headend, is it an ios router or an ASA?

thanks,
