I have a VPN server at home with RRAS enabled. From work, I can connect to the VPN just fine, and rdp into the VPN server just fine. However, I cannot rdp into my home PC's which is on the same LAN as the VPN server. I also notice that before I make a VPN connection from work, I can ping my home router and gateway, but after I connect to my VPN, I cannot ping my router and gateway. I am able to ping the VPN server just fine. I am not able to ping my PC's at my home. My router is a Linksys BEFW11S4. I have port forwarded rdp 3389 to my VPN server IP address. When at home, I can remote desktop from one PC to another just fine, but this only works in my LAN. Can an expert please help. Let me know if you need screen shots. Thank you.
