Cisco VPN Client - connect to VPN but can't ping/telnet
Posted on 2006-06-06
We use the Cisco client to connect to our clients' VPNs from our office. All the VPN connections are working except for one, lets call it ABC.
When I connect to ABC from home it works fine. I am able to connect, it assigns me an ip, creates a route in the route print table to the network I need to get to and it allows me to ping and telnet to a computer I need to get to.
When I connect to ABC from the office, I am able to connect to the vpn, it assigns me an ip, creates a route to the network I need to get to BUT when I try to ping or telnet to the computer I need to get to, it times out. When I do a traceroute it goes no where.
I'm assuming the PIX firewall we have at the office is causing the problem but I have no idea what ports I need to open or what other configs I need to modify to get this thing to work. ABC is the only connection that doesn't work, all other VPN connections with the Cisco client work fine. This is what is confusing me.
Any ideas? Any help is appreciated.
