Hello,

Your printer is on your LAN and you are having problem printing while you on VPN. Is this correct?  If that is the case, you need to enable VPN split tunnelling and this should be done on your VPN server.

I can't find a good article to help with this, but take a look at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/bb878117.aspx.

Thanks.

Hi koudy,

When following the directions I ran into a difference that hopefully you can re-direct me.  When going into the Advanced TCP/IP settings of my Cisco VPN connection I do not have the General Tab.  Instead my tab is IP Settings?
Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Hello,

It is difficult for me to check this as I don't have access to a Windows 2003 server.

Check the post @ http://best-tech-articles.blogspot.com/2008/10/how-to-enable-split-tunneling-for-vpn.html

I will look around to see if I can find something.

Thanks.

koudry,
I looked at both the Server and the client network settings and both are the same as the General tab is not available??

I forgot to mention that once I connect to the remote network I use RDP to connect to a computer inside the network and would like to print locally....

Hello,

The way you connect to the server, should not matter. I am sorry but I don't have a W2003 server - take a look at this http://www.isaserver.org/tutorials/VPN_Client_Security_Issues.html.

Good luck.

When changing the vpn adapter settings to default gateway I am unable to connect to an interior computer using rdp???  I reset to the default settings and I was able to once again use rdp.

Thoughts....
