Windows 7 Virtual XP CISCO VPN
Posted on 2011-04-18
I have a machine that i currently have running in virtual XP mode as we are not ready to deploy Windows 7 yet. We also are still running NT 4 for our domain (yes that's right NT 4, no need for jokes i've heard them all).
This user is often remote, and needs to access the virtual machine with XP through the Cisco Anyconnect VPN. I fire up windows 7, connect to VPN, then launch my virtual machine. My problem is that the XP virtual machine doesn't seem to be picking up the VPN connection from Windows 7. The virtual machine won't let me login because it keeps saying the domain isn't available.
I have played with the adapter settings in the VM. First i tried setting only the first adapter to NAT with no success. Then i tried setting the first adapter to NAT and the second adapter to just regular wireless.
It would seem the traffic is not passing correctly from Windows 7 VPN connection to the VM. Any ideas? Is this more so the fault of the Cisco VPN or is the network adapter config i am attempting wrong?
