VPN + PPTP + NAT; Can't see local network.

Hi everyone,

First time posting on EE. Here's the deal: I've got a VPN connection going through a NAT firewall/router (D-Link DI-604 ). I can connect to the remote network, and browse the Internet while connected to it. However, I can not access any of the machines on the remote network. Both my LAN, and the remote network are on DHCP subnetted 255.255.255.0. I believe what is happening is when I try to ping a remote machine on the VPN (ping 192.168.0.41), it is trying to ping a machine on the local network. It doesn't find any, so it gives up. Likewise with other applications. I do have my TCP/IP set to use the default gateway on the remote network.

I guess the question is, how do I work around it and tell it to explicitly go to machines on the remote network and ignore the local ones?

do you have the same subnet (192.168.0.x) on both local & remote networks ? If so, you need to change one of them.

Bingo! That was it. Makes perfect sense. I should have tried that in the first place. Thanks td_miles. Now I can get some work done!
