Ping returns 22.214.171.124 for servers when connected to VPN on PIX 506e
Posted on 2005-04-25
I've got a person on the road who was having problems connecting to our internal systems through our VPN and it turned out the reason why is because the servers were saying their IP address was 126.96.36.199. I tried pinging a couple of servers behind our firewall when connected to the VPN and they all return the same IP of 188.8.131.52. Pinging the servers actual IP address works just fine so it's some kind of DNS issue I think.
This remote user was connecting through a hotel's wireless connection so I don't know what AP they use or what config they have but is there anything I can do on my end possibly in the PIX config to make sure these remote users can connect okay? I had to resort to modifying the remote user's HOSTS file to let them in successfully and I'd like to avoid doing that if possible.
