Cisco VPN printing problem
Posted on 2009-02-18
I am working with my notebook (Win XP) on a customer's network. The notebook and the printers have IPs on diffirent subnet/vlan. I have created a tcp/ip-port and installed a printer on my machine. Now, I am able to print directly to the printer.
To access my company's network we use the Cisco VPN Client (v5.0.00.0340), I have configured the client to "Allow local LAN Access". The instance I connect to my company's network (to access e.g. my exchange mail), I cannot print to or ping the printer anymore.
The above setup has worked flawlessly at other customers with a one-subnet or at home.
I collegue said to me that it's impossible to route to through to another subnet using Cisco's VPN, because the client thing the subnet is NOT a local LAN.
Does anyone know's a solution I can implement on my notebook so I can print when I am connected to my company's LAN?
