I have bought a 4 port switch router to connect connect two pcs together and allow both to access the internet. On eof the pcs is my work laptop. Both can get on the internet.
The cable modem is patched into the wan port on the router and then the laptop and pc and patched into the router via the ethernet ports.
However when i go through the router i cannot access my work vpn - get the message remote peer not responding, but if i connect the laptop directly to the broadband modem ( ie not through the router ) i can connect to the vpn.
is their an issue with the private ip address that i get when using the router as opposed to the public one when attched directly to the broadband modem
