We have small LAN behind a Linksys router. The Linksys connects the LAN via VPN to a company that manages a database for us. Apart from the VPN there are no special configurations or filters..
The company that we are connected to by VPN has a website that we need to access but we can't get there by URL or IP.
The site can be accessed from any location except the LAN.

Thanks!

Is your LAN connected to the internet? If so, your browser should be configured to automatically detect your connection. Also, check your router's settings, as you might be blocking some sites by accident.

Do other sites work? E.g. Can you access 'http://www.yahoo.com'?

Yes, the LAN is connected to the internet and there are no proxy settings. All browsers are set to Automatically detect.
The router isn't set to block any sites and all other sites are accessible.
I'm thinking it has something to do with the VPN because that's the only specific configuration on the router.
The company we're connected to thriugh VPN is the host of this particular website that is unreachable.

Try turning off the VPN and then connecting to the site. If that doesn't work, then something's wrong with your internet connection.

Thanks for leading me to the answer.
The active VPN isn't a problem but in looking at it I found an older unused tunnel that was enabled and when I disabled it the website came right up.
Again...thanks!
