Connect through Cisco VPN without losing local LAN connections (Linux RedHat 9 + Cisco Systems VPN Client Version 4.6.02)
Posted on 2005-04-22
I have installed the Cisco Systems VPN Client Version 4.6.02 (0030) on my RedHat Linux 9 box, and it works very well. Except that, while the VPN is connected, the RedHat box disappears off my LAN.
As my normal way of working is to ssh into the Linux box from the machine on my desk, this is very inconvenient!
The LAN is connected to the Internet through a ZyXel ADSL NAT router, if that makes any difference.
Out of interest, I also installed the Cisco VPN client on my Windows XP machine, and that had exactly the same effect.
I assume the VPN is directing al network traffic out through the VPN, rather than routing local traffic locally, and only VPN traffic remotely. But I'm not sure where to start to correct this (or even if the Cisco client allows it to be corrected).
Thanks in advance,
