Forefront TMG (strange) behavior on Site-to-Site VPN

I'm having a weird problem on my Forefront TMG firewall. When I activate my Site-to-Site VPN from the office ( to the External Interface ( of my Forefront TMG machine I cannot access the external interface anymore. We work with Outlook Anywhere and thats bound to the external interface of the TMG. I can ping and access the internal devices behind the Forefront TMG server but when I try to access the IP on the external interface it doesn't respond. When I disable the Network "Site-to-Site Branch VPN" the connection is restored.

Am I doing something wrong with routing or is this by design?

    Accepted Solution

    It would only be by design if the Anywhere service is on the ip address range that you have associated with the VPN.
