Cannot remote desktop after creating a VPN connection
Posted on 2007-11-25
I recently logged in from my home office PC (XP Pro) via Remote Desktop to machine A in domain A.
While on Machine A I created a VPN connection to domain B. As soon as the VPN connected I lost my remote desktop connection. I believe the reason why this happened is that the IP address for machine A changed once the VPN was created. So how do I terminate the VPN connection since I no longer can access machine A. Is the only solution a reboot of machine A? How can I find out its new IP address?
I am able to create a VPN to domain B from my home PC so is there a way I can terminate the VPN connection from a machine B in domain B? Or at least find out the new IP address for machine A so that I can reconnect via remote desktop?
