microsoft vpn, cant vpn from inside network

Hi there,
If I'm in a my local network, and I vpn to this microsoft vpn server that resides locally as well and is usually used by outside clients use to vpn into the network. Should i be able to vpn from the inside network ???

Probably not. The VPN client is set up to connect to the external IP and when doing so from inside the router it requires the router support "hairpinning" (connect out and then back in). If you change the VPN client to point to the LAN IP of the VPN server it should work fine.
