Hi,

A consultant set up a PIX firewall for us, I believe this also means we can connect into our network via  VPN.

The consultant that created the Cisco *.pcf file that we import into the Cisco VPN software has now lefted the UK..

The VPN was working fine now it isn't...

The internal network is 10.44.0. - 255.255.255.0

The Cisco client gets 10.44.0. 255.0.0.0

I am trying to connect to two server...

10.44.0.199 - Name FS1 - I can ping the ip but not the FS1 name..

And

10.44.0.198 - Name TS1 - I ping 10.44.0.198 once and get a reply - then it's times out - and I can't ping TS1 at all...

Please post a sanitized copy of your config.  It would seem that something is wrong within the routing and/or name services have changed.

if you can ping by ip and not by name then that is a dns issue.  do you have access to the pix?  also, once connected via vpn client what does an ipconfig -all show you. particularly, what are your dns servers assigned, and are they valid.  

if you have access to the pix then check these commands,  yours will differ slightly
vpngroup vpn3000 address-pool ippool
vpngroup vpn3000 dns-server 10.1.1.2
vpngroup vpn3000 wins-server 10.1.1.2
vpngroup vpn3000 default-domain cisco.com
vpngroup vpn3000 idle-time 1800


check ths dns and wins servers

If nothing has changed between now and earlier when it was working then recycle the pix once. Then see, if it doesn't then post your config.


Cheers,
Rajesh
