VNC remote control via VPN through 3005 concentrator
Posted on 2003-11-28
I am using a Cisco 3005 VPN concentrator to establish a vpn Tunnel through a netgear 8 port router (model - fvs318) to a remote computer behind that router running windows XP home. In the concentrators config I believe everything is set up correctly and after connecting to the remote end using ciscos VPN dialer, I can see that the client is connected via vpn on the concentrator.
that being said, I am trying to remote control the clients computer via VNC after this VPN connection has been established. Even though I can see the IP I've assigned him as connected in monitoring|remote access sessions section of the concentrator manager, and can clearly see that he is connected (and confirmed it with the remote administrator) and we have the vnc server running and properly configured on the remote end, when I try to connect on my side using the VNC viewer, I cannot connect.. vnc says it can't find the IP. I cannot even ping the IP successfully.
Am I missing something here? we can establish connection properly with other clients. what could the likely problem be?
