Problems connecting to resources on a VPN Network via TMG

Last Modified: 2013-11-12
I have set up a TMG gateway, for outbound all works well.  I am now trying to set up a VPN into the system to access SQL Servers etc.

I have followed all the instructions I can find, and all seems well.  I am accessing the VPN from a Windows 7 laptop.

When I try to connect, I am prompted for the login credentials, which I enter, and it says they are accepted.  Windows 7 reports I am connected.  If I try IP config, the VPN network has a valid IP address from the corporate network.

But if I try to ping any of the servers on that network I cannot.  I also cannot access the SQL Server by using the SQL Man Studio.

I tried to ping by server name to the SQL server, and I get a reply, but form an IP address I do not recognise.

I have spent a lot of time on this,  and am puling out my hair.

I would welcome any advise.
