Cisco VPN

On our network , a VPN was installed. For the transmission protocol, the Microsoft TC/IP stack was replaced by the Cisco stack. Now we are not able to access shared resources (databases etc.) from other computers on our network.

What can we do to access these resources?

Name resolution most likely is the problem.
What VPN device are the clients connecting to? Cisco VPN 3000 series concentrator? PIX Firewall? Router?
Is it configured correctly?

Assuming that you can actually connect to the VPN...
You most likely need a LMHOSTS file, listing only your Domain controller:

Pay particular attention to the spacing requirements between the quotation marks in the document above.

Are you sure you have the correct Cisco VPN client? The 5000 client is being phased out in favor of the 3000 series client...The 5000 solution would be a very expensive proposition. I would expect that anyone spending that kind of money on a solution would have a support staff to work with you...

If I understand your reply:

1. The 5000 client is being phased out.
2. Are you saying the 3000 client will permit us to access resources on our network
3. Are saying a LMHOSTS file wil solve the problem?

1. Yes
2. Depends on what you are connecting to. Do you have a 5000 series concentrator? A 3000 series concentrator? Router? PIX FW?
3. It could. Can't hurt to try it. It fixed my problem, and worked for several others in this forum
