We have a Cisco VPN Concenentrator that users connect to with the Cisco VPN client.  For some reason a handful of people are having a problem connecting.  The client connects to the concentrator properly and gives them an ip ie: 192.168.1.80   however these users can't ping, rdp or see anything on the network.  When you ping the client 192.168.1.80 from a machine on the internal network...then all of the suden the client can connect to all resources.   Weird problem, any ideas?

Do you have your VPN configured to assign DNS settings? On the 192.168.1.80 client, run an ipconfig and see where it's getting DNS.

Also, try RDP via IP address instead of hostname.

It is not a DNS issue.  I have not even tried to connect to anything via host names only by ip which does not work unless i ping the client from the private network.
