Hi:
I established a VPN tunnel and have 15 stations connecting through it, but there is a website that i'm able to access from any computer i've used except from those 15 stations. I have the tunnel from 12.96 to 12.126, and if i configure a station with i.e. 12.15 i still can't access the website even though the traffic is routed outside vpn. I believe i can't run a debug to trace what interface are the packets leaving through. I have a Linksys RV016. The website admin tells me he does not block access to the website to anybody. Any suggestions on how can i access the website from those 15 stations.?

For VPN's you have to have a routing policy for how to get those connected networks outside if that's the only way they can access the outside network.

All the 15 stations are able to access any website i.e. youtube myspace etc, except the 1 website i mentioned, the vpn purpose is to execute an application stored in the other side's server. But again i can access any website including secure websites from those 15 stations except that 1 website which by the way i can access from any other computer including my home computer.

Are you actually connecting to the target webserver and you can't see the site, OR are you not even able to connect to that server ?  Run a traceroute and see where the connection dies.  Do an nslookup and see if you can even resolve the domain name.

Sorry , I meant to say what does YOUR route table show.  It's going to show the gateway and route info for each range and network port on your machine.

If you can't see or get to a specific IP address it may be something in your route table.  

It could also be a local firewall issue too.

I got it solved, i configured in the routing table that all traffic heading to the web site's ip address should go out through the wan connection, because apparently the traffic was going through the vpn.
