I am using SonicWall Global VPN client on my laptop (Win XP) to log into my office computer (WinXP). When I log into the VPN for some reason my keyboard and mouse stop working.  Any useful information will be greatly appreciated.

Is TCP port 3389 blocked by a firewall by any chance?

When you connect to the VPN, are you able to use the keyboard and mouse as usual while working on your laptop? I mean without connecting to your office PC, just enable the VPN and work locally on your laptop. What I'm trying to establish is whether the problem is GVC /VPN related or remote desktop related.

I would guess that the answer is yes, since otherwise you would have a hard time firing up the remote desktop session, but let us know anyway..

Also, I assume you are in fact using remote desktop to connect to your office PC?
