My company uses Cisco VPN with local LAN access denied when connected.
While I fully understand WHY this is necessary, how do I work around it?
I am not trying to gain wide open access. I just want to add a connection to my printer. As a bonus if I could connect to my file server as well that would be great.
I have a lot of documents that I want to print however my Printer is on my local network. Therefore when I connect to the VPN, all local access breaks. I can't access file shares on my other computer, nor print to my Network Printer.
My questions are:
1. How does the Cisco VPN client achieve this? I found some references indicating that I could change my routing Table to gain access to my local printer, but the directions I found didn't work.
2. Is there another VPN Client that I can aquire that will grant me more local control?
3. Is this is due to some kind of Cisco local firewall?
If this is due to the Stateful firewall, if I uninstall and reinstall following the instructions here
and use the installation option:
msiexec.exe /i vpnclient_setup.msi DONTINSTALLFIREWALL=1
Will I still be able to connect to the VPN, or is there something on the Firewall that will detect the lack of the firewall.
I am running the Cisco VPN Client 5.0.07.0290 on Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I have local administrator rights and my computer is not on a domain.
PLEASE DON'T REPLY
back with instructions on how to change the tunnel configuration on the firewall. I can NOT use split tunnels. The Security team is not interested in my inability to print. The "Official Corporate" work around is to download the file to the computer, then disconnect from the VPN to print.
This is too much of a pain.
