Hello experts,

Here is my problem, I just received details on how to connect to a lab using Cisco VPN Client 5.x. I am able to connect; but I am not sure what I am connecting to.

The visio diagram of the lab (unfortunately I can not attach), lists a DMZ with a cluster name, several hosts, several IPs and other servers. My understanding is that there is only two physical servers.

so, what am I supposed to see when connected?

thx so much and my apologies for being so vague.

I am hoping one of you can shine a light to either ask smart questions or know what to do....

I can't believe I did not know this.. it is amazing how you forget things...

you first connect to the network... then you use remote desktop to connect to server...
