Hi Everyone

I have Mac OS X Lion (on the new MB Air) and I have configured the built in Cisco VPN client to connect to our network.

It connects successfully.
 When I run netstat in terminal, I can see the correct static routes pointing to the correct subnet using the correct gateway. I know this because I have the Cisco VPN client in windows.

However, I cannot ping any devices in the vpn network. I also cannot connect to them using http, https, smb.

It does connect, but something is blocking it from actually accessing the vpn network.I have checked the firewall and that is not the problem.

Any advice?

Were you pinging the host name or IP address?
I have similar issue where we can connect via IP address but not host name... we concluded this is an issue with Lion and hopefully they will address it soon
