I have a Linksys Wireless B Notebook adapter V4 and I am connected to Work Lotus notes through a VPN.  I am able to receive and read email - but can't send.  I was able to use Lotus notes last week without a problem - but on Friday - did a complete update overwrite to my laptop.  Nothing has changed on my router set up - what has changed is my laptop configuration and the fact that I downloaded a beta version of Linksys Wireless because I know from past experience that V4 doesn't work with VPN.  Any ideas??  Linksys is absolutely NO help at all..

I do not believe this is a Linksys problem.  Typically, a VPN does not block any ports or functions.  It usually is all or nothing...  If you are connected and receive mail, then I think it has something to do with the Lotus Notes instead.  Probably a configuration issue.

I'll focus on the Lotus configuration files instead.

When I dial up - I am able to both send and receive.  This says to me that it isn't in Notes.... Takes me back to the router being the issue.

Thank you all for your help.  I figured it out.  I changed my MTU on my laptop to 1382 and I can now send mail...

I recently had a problem with a Linksys Wireless-B adapter and a Symantec Enterprise VPN client. They were incompatible and had to replace. Replaced with a Wireless-G and everything worked fine.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I've had to do a bit of research to setup my VPN connection so that Clients can access Windows Server 2008 network shares.  I have a Cisco ASA 5510 firewall.  I found an article which was extremely useful: It had a solution if you use ASDM to config…
Like many others, when I created a Windows 2008 RRAS VPN server, I connected via PPTP, and still do, but there are problems that can arise from solely using PPTP.  One particular problem was that the CFO of the company used a Virgin Broadband Wirele…
