I have a vpn domain server with local ips in the range of 192.168.1.0 - 192.168.1.255.  I am trying to connect through vpn with a winxppro machine that is on a similar network.  The vpn connects, assigns a proper ip, but gives a subnet mask of 255.255.255.255 which doesn't let me access anything on the network.  I know i have encountered this before and have fixed the problem - I just cant remember how.  Any help is appreciated!

Which network can you not access anything? The local or the remote?

Not by IP or name? Any chance of changing the ip scheme on one of the 2 networks? Otherwise I would enable use remote gateway in the vpn connectoid and see if that clears it up.

neither name or ip work.  i could change the ip scheme...  right now they are both 192.168.1.*  I've tried the use remote gateway, that doesnt seem to help.  Isnt 255.255.255.255 an invalid subnet mask anyway?  I mean, it shouldnt work with that subnet, right?

That is okay for the vpn it is just telling it to send everything out the tunnel to the server. Try changing the ip scheme.
